The good hospital administrator is joining The Good Wife. Former House star Lisa Edelstein is joining the hit CBS series for a multi-episode arc next season. According to TVLine.com, Edelstein will appear early in the season as “a lawyer and born poker player whose sexiness is enhanced by her obvious intelligence.”
Rumor has it her character also shares a past with Will, though it isn’t clear whether that past is professional or personal. The actress shocked House fans when it was announced she was leaving the medical series after contract negotiations failed. Her new gig means she will be going from one show with a mysterious female bisexual character to another. So, at least she’s being consistent.
Speaking of The Good Wife’s resident mysterious female bisexual character, Kalinda, actress Archie Panjabi foresees an interesting season ahead for our favorite boot-wearing detective. While at the Monte Carlo TV Festival earlier this month she discussed whether Kalinda’s friendship with Alisha can be salvaged. She told E! Online:
She also talked with Digital Spy about all the speculation around Kalinda’s sexuality, which went from curious to definitely bi last season.
Any what about future hook-ups for our lady of the leather jackets? Like will Sophia (played by Kelli Giddish), the woman Kalinda wrinkled the sheets with last season, only to leave abruptly after she found out she was married.
You know who I want back? Big-time FBI lady Lana Delaney (the lovely Jill Flint). But Flint’s job on Royal Pains may mean no more frisky government job offers are in the future for Kalinda.
So, excited about the Edelstein news? Think we’ll see more lady action with Kalinda? Me, I’m just happy for a show that gives so many talented actresses richly drawn female characters to play.
