Mike Colter on Lemond Bishop's 'Good Wife' arc, more time with Kalinda

Lemond Bishop has been a Good Wife staple since its first season. He’s been the drug-dealing client who Will and Diane took on for monetary reasons, and he’s been the drug-dealing client who has managed to connect with Alicia on a parental level. And in season 6, his role has been larger than ever as he’s become the drug-dealing ex-client that the state is trying to take down by first taking down Cary. And let’s not forget that he recently started raising money for Alicia’s State’s Attorney campaign.

So what’s next? We talked with Mike Colter about Bishop’s motives, the role he might play in Kalinda’s departure, and more.

What’s in store for Norman on Bates Motel this season? — Chris
Norman may have passed the polygraph test in the season finale, but Romero won’t be off his trail for long. “Romero has closed that case,” Freddie Highmore tells me. “But in the third season, his suspicions are aroused once again by a certain incident, so that uncertainty around who Norman really is sparks off again in his mind.” I wonder if the incident has to do with the new tenant.

'The Good Wife' guest stars Dylan Baker and Laura Benanti set to return

A fan-favorite (alleged) lady-killer is coming back to The Good Wife.

Dylan Baker’s wonderfully creepy Colin Sweeney will return for a season-six episode airing in 2015. Here’s what co-creator Robert King says: “Colin Sweeney wants the firm to sue a TV show for defamation after the show steals his character, and makes it look like he killed his first wife. Laura Benanti also returns as his estranged third wife, Renata, who decides to testify against him in court.”

Baker earned his third Emmy nomination earlier this year for his portrayal of Sweeney. The Good Wife airs Sundays at 9 p.m. on CBS.

Kalinda's leaving 'The Good Wife' -- but the show lost her years ago

First we lost Will. Then we lost Lockhart/Gardner. And now, we just found out that season 6 of The Good Wife will be Kalinda’s last. It’s a shocking loss for longtime fans of the show—yet its impact isn’t as bad as it could have been. Or rather, it isn’t what it would have been just a few seasons ago. READ FULL STORY

Archie Panjabi exiting 'The Good Wife'

Archie Panjabi will be leaving The Good Wife after six seasons, EW has confirmed.


Alan Cumming reveals the secret to Eli's hair on 'The Good Wife'

Going from the set of The Good Wife to the stage of Broadway’s Cabaret requires a quick change for Alan Cumming, whose hair has to go from silver-streaked to black. As he tells EW Radio while promoting his new memoir Not My Father’s Son, The Good Wife producers opted for a wig for three episodes. But then the show’s hair team found a new system: “Eli’s gray streaks are silver blooming Sharpie,” he says.

Listen to him recount his tale of woe to News & Notes hosts Julia Cunningham and Mario Correa below. READ FULL STORY

Watch this, DVR that: Your guide to Sunday's perfect night of TV


In our fall TV preview, we broke down each day into what to watch live and what to DVR. Here’s your fall Sunday-night game plan:


'Good Wife' sneak peek: Alicia and Peter butt heads over Cary's bail


As fans saw in last week’s Good Wife premiere, Alicia is willing to do just about anything to post Cary’s $1.3 million bail and get him out of what has proven to be a very dangerous prison. She was almost successful after one of Lemond Bishop’s associates offered up the necessary funds, but Finn quickly questioned the source of the money.

So now, we’ve got an exclusive first look at Sunday’s episode, in which Alicia needs Peter to sign off on a loan in order to help Cary. Only, if Peter’s learned anything from his past mistakes, it’s that documents don’t go away. Secrets come out. And signing this loan is not a secret he wants on his record.


'Good Wife' creators tease a secret, guest stars, and more Eli-Alicia

The Good Wife returns Sunday, Sept. 21 (CBS, 9:30 p.m. ET) with a premiere that picks up right where season 5 left off: with Eli (Alan Cumming) suggesting that Alicia (Julianna Margulies) run for State’s Attorney. Creators Robert and Michelle King are mum about whether she’ll ultimately decide to enter the race, but we were able to get a few teases out of them about what’s to come.

EW: First question: Are you currently hiding a secret on the level of Will Gardner getting shot?
ROBERT KING: I wouldn’t say at that level, but there is a secret we’re hiding about the first episode. Sorry. We don’t like doing that. READ FULL STORY

Gloria Steinem will guest star on 'The Good Wife'

The strong women of The Good Wife are about to come face-to-face with a feminist legend. EW has confirmed that activist Gloria Steinem will guest star on the upcoming sixth season of The Good Wife. Steinem, who’s a fan of the show, will play herself in the season’s third episode. There’s no word yet on which characters she’ll interact with, but one can only hope she’ll offer Alicia a few words of wisdom.

The Good Wife returns Sunday, Sept. 21 at 9:30 p.m. on CBS.
