The Good Wife: Making a Case for Finn Polmar (and Why He's Not the New Will)

Matthew Goode, Josh Charles

As the old adage goes, when one door closes, another opens. In the case of The Good Wife, when one leading man gets gunned down in court and dies (RIP Will Gardner), another one rises from his ashes. Yes, it's no secret that Matthew Goode faced quite the uphill battle when he signed on to play prosecutor Finn Polmar for the second half of... read more

Julianna Margulies, Alan Cumming

[WARNING: This story contains major spoilers from Sunday's episode of The Good Wife. Read at your own risk.]

It started with a voicemail and it ended with a voicemail.

OK, technically "Willicia" started when the former law school chums shared a passionate kiss in The Good Wife's 17th episode. However, it was only after Will (Josh Charles) left that voicemail declaring his love for Alicia (Julianna Margulies) in the Season 1 finale that the duo began their "conscious coupling" and eventual relationship in Season 3.

Julianna Margulies, Chris Noth

The Good Wife's Alicia Florrick has been through quite a lot.

The close gubernatorial election. Her ugly exit from Lockhart/Gardner. But just when it seemed the worst was behind Alicia (Julianna Margulies), an incriminating video surfaced suggesting that Peter (Chris Noth) had rigged the election.

The Weekend Playlist: Dead Popular, 40 Years of Great Performances

Steven Yeun

Is "I've Got You Under My Skin" the most appropriate sweet nothing to croon in the skin-crawling world of AMC's The Walking Dead? No matter, because there's not much of a lull in Sunday's powerful episode (9/8c), ominously titled "Infected." Which suggests the virus that felled Nerd Boy last week creates a bloody panic in the cell block, reminding us how illusory any notion of safety can be. "I haven't seen anybody be lucky in a long time," former Army medic Bob Stookey (new regular Lawrence Gilliard Jr.) observes as a full gamut of courage, terror and anguish is displayed during and after the latest crisis. Earning special bonus stripes this week: Melissa McBride as the awesome Carol, who takes a few distraught girls under her wing, but not to coddle them: "You want to live, you have to become strong" is her mantra. Meanwhile, the walkers keep pressing up against the prison gates and the audience can't get enough of the riveting mayhem, as evidenced by the record numbers who turned out for last Sunday's premiere.

Jonathan Rhys Meyers Meets His Match

Scarlett Johansson and Jonathan Rhys Meyers in Match Point

Jonathan Rhys Meyers had no idea what he was getting into — literally — when Woody Allen cast him in the romantic thriller Match Point, now in select theaters. "I had never read the script when Woody offered the role to me," the actor tells TVGuide.com. "And I just accepted. For any young actor to be in a Woody Allen film, you're just going to do it regardless of what it is." Once Rhys Meyers did peruse the script, he was hit with another surprise. "I was like, 'If I get four or five good scenes, I'll be gold.' And then it dawned on me how much work I had to do in this!" And how. Match Point features Rhys Meyers as Chris, a former tennis champ who latches on to new Brit bud Tom (Matthew Goode read more
