'The Good Wife' pictures: 'Social Network,' 'Erin Brockovich' and the voice mail for sweeps
In the Feb. 15 episode titled "Net Worth," the show takes a "ripped from the headlines" approach, as Viola Walsh ( Rita Wilson, pictured below and real-life wife to Tom Hanks), calls Diane to take over a defamation case where a young internet billionaire is suing the film studio for depicting him in a negative light. Oscar-winner F. Murray Abraham is also guest-starring as the film studio's lawyer. We wonder who will play Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg?
There is also a tease that Alicia confronts Will about the infamous voice mail (pictured above). The build-up has been rather nice surrounding this piece of the drama, so we hope the payoff is just as good.
But before we can figure out the "Net Worth," we get the return of Michael J. Fox in "Real Deal" on Feb. 8, when Alicia is rounding up plaintiffs for a class-action lawsuit, "Erin Brockovich"-style, trying to get more clients than attorney Louis Canning (Fox). Method Man (pictured, below) also guest-stars as one of Peter's prison buddies.
It sounds like "The Good Wife" is pulling out all the stops for sweeps. We can't wait. "Good Wife" airs Tuesday nights at 10 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.
