The Hollywood Reporter revealed that Justin Bartha has signed on for the series. The following was revealed about his role:
“Bartha will play Colin, a rising star in the State’s Attorney’s office and Chicago’s most eligible bachelor. Romantic sparks begin to fly when he finds himself going up against Lucca (Cush Jumbo) in the courtroom.”
Robert and Michelle King said the following about the casting move:
“Whenever you’re looking for a romantic lead, you look for someone who can play the comedy and the sexuality, but even more importantly is the intelligence. And that’s what we love about Justin: He can play all three — the comedy and the sexuality, but he’s also convincing as a tough intellectual foe to Cush Jumbo in court. We couldn’t be happier.”
The Good Fight will pick up the action a year after the events in the finale of The Good Wife. Are you excited for this spin-off series? Are you a fan of Justin Bartha? Tell us what you think.
