Michael J. Fox shouldn’t be too down about himself right now; while one door closes, another door on “The Good Wife” opens wide and invites him in.
One day after NBC more or less canceled “The Michael J. Fox Show” by taking it off of their schedule, “The Good Wife” has signed the actor for multiple episodes that will help to close the door on season 5. Fox’s Louis Canning has been a popular character on the show in the past, and clearly has also resonated with many awards show voters. He has been nominated for three Emmys for his take on the character, but has yet to win a statue for it. (To be fair, he can still go home and look at all the Emmys and Golden Globes that he has for “Family Ties” and “Spin City,” let alone the fact that he was associated with “Back to the Future.”)
“The Good Wife” has been off the air for what seems like forever, and that is mostly because of the NFL playoffs and the Grammys coming in and monopolizing everything. Even still, CBS is going to be careful about new episodes against the Olympics, but there will be more to come from the show this month. Also, the one good thing about the lack of new episodes lately (yes, there is a good thing) is that it allows us to see more consecutively for the rest of the way this year. “The Good Wife” has also been on a little bit of a creative tear, and it’s with that in mind that we are very thrilled to see what will be coming up next.
