In these new behind the scenes pictures from CBS, the oh-so-serious Panjabi cracks quite a few smiles while filming a scene as Kalinda Sharma with Alan Cumming.
'The Good Wife' photos showcase what it's like working on the drama show. Spoiler alert, the cast likes to laugh!
Check out the pictures below.
"I went into this restaurant, and I was sitting at the table with Salvador Dali and I saw the most beautiful woman I'd ever seen," Minnelli said. Only, things weren't quite as they seemed.
It turns out the most beautiful woman Liza Minnelli had ever seen was actually a man in drag. And rather than be cool and sophisticated about it when she found out, Minnelli shouted out, "You're kidding!"
Cumming has signed a three-year deal with the show, according to Deadline.
Cumming joined 'The Good Wife' as a recurring character during the CBS drama's first season. He's appeared on the second season as a series regular, often sharing scenes with series star Julianna Margulies. The actor was nominated for a guest actor Emmy last year.
The three-year deal is contingent on CBS renewing 'The Good Wife,' which is likely to happen although the show hasn't been given the official greenlight for season 3.
"For Mr. Kozko to be murdered, one key thing is required that we overlooked," says Tascioni to the courtroom judge. That key thing involves an ATM machine and the Cayman Islands...?
More casting news after the jump.
Well, in his next TV gig, there's no music on the agenda. Alan Cumming will be guesting on The Good Wife, playing a character by the name of Eli Gold.
Robert Keck interviewed Graham Phillips, who plays Zach Florrick on the show, the teenage son of Chris Noth and Julianna Margulies' characters. Graham revealed that Gold is brought in to rehabilitate his dad's reputation.
It will not be a typical Jenna floppola, either. It's a song being written by the Emmy nominated team of Wesley Whatley and William Schermerhorn. And in case you don't know, Jane's a Tony-winning star who is not only hilarious as Jenna, but a really fine singer/dancer/actress.
That's not all. Alan Cumming is also set to perform in the parade, and it sounds like a doozy, too. He'll sing the Sinatra classic, "That's Life" on the M&M float. What the song, Cumming and Sinatra have to do with M&M candies is anyone's guess.
By contrast, Monday night proved that Tin Man had its own story to tell. This was a story that would use the Wizard of Oz as a jumping off point and rethink the classic.
For myself, I thought it was pretty good but I like the original story enough to find almost any variation of it amusing. I also know not to expect much from a Sci-Fi channel miniseries. So, I fully anticipated that the special effects would be inconsistent and the dialogue would be insipid.
Nevertheless, the actors were good, great even. Alan Cumming is a genius and Neal McDonough is good enough as the embittered ex-Tin Man. I didn't think that Zooey Deschanel was that bad either--so many people complained about her. She does have an abrupt delivery though (which doesn't work well with some of her mediocre lines).
I guess it was only a matter of time until the Sci-Fi channel added their version to the ever-evolving list of stories about Dorothy and her journey through Oz. Tin Man aired last night on the Sci-Fi channel from 9-11 p.m. ET/PT and will continue tonight and tomorrow night (same channel, same time).
We began last night with D.G., the Midwestern waitress who speeds to work on her motorcycle, has weird dreams, and believes there's something more to life than waiting tables and windy prairies. D.G., unlike the gentler Dorothy, is a little too tough at times. I don't mind her talking back to everyone but I do mind her going after longcoats with a stick when she sees the men beating up Tin Man's family.
First up was Law & Order creator Dick Wolf and new Law & Order cast members Alicia Witt (CI), Adam Beach (SVU), and Jeremy Sisto (Law & Order).
Sisto's character on L&O comes with emotional baggage that makes the angst he carried around as Rachel Griffith's brother on Six Feet Under seem like a birthday party, which is interesting since Wolf is no fan of serial drama.
Rick and Steve are a gay couple, and they're animated. I don't mean they're lively, I mean they're the stars of a new animated series for Logo called Rick and Steve. The series, which begins July 10 at 10:00 p.m., features voice work by Alan Cumming, Margaret Cho, Wilson Cruz and Peter Paige. The music for the series is composed by the same folks who wrote the music for Avenue Q.
The characters in Rick and Steve resemble tiny posable toys, which makes the show look like something created for the Nick Jr. set. Of course, the themes are just a tad more adult than that, or so I gathered by watching the trailer.
June is Gay Pride Month, and throughout the entire month Turner Classic Movies is showcasing several movies with various depictions and stereotypes of gays and the gay lifestyle. The focus isn't necessarily movies with a gay theme, but movies with gay characters, or movies with gay actors, writers and directors. Some of the movies include The Maltese Falcon, Designing Woman, and The Picture of Dorian Gray.
I would also include at least two Hitchcock films in this line-up: Psycho and Strangers on a Train, which allude to certain characters being gay during a time when blatant depictions were much less common.
The films will be shown every Monday and Wednesday night at 8:00 p.m. in June, and will be hosted by Robert Osbourne and Richard Barrios, along with guests Tab Hunter, Alan Cumming, Michael Musto, Ron Nyswaner and Charles Busch.
Slate dives into the sweet smelling waters of celebrity perfumes and colognes. I like the description of Cumming (yes, yes, yes, insert you own joke here): "a witty, rather macho blend of bergamot, black pepper, Scotch pine, whiskey, peet, and white truffle that belies the star's epicine image."
I'd like to have a cologne of my own, but it would probably be an unappealing mixture of cheese pizza, Reese's peanut butter cups, and newspaper ink.
