“The Good Wife” is known for the cavalcade of recurring guest stars that populate its fictional Chicago legal world. One of the most fun is Carrie Preston as Elsbeth Tascioni, a quirky-but-brilliant attorney who recently joined with Rayna Hecht (Jill Hennessy) to form their own law firm. With Preston’s popularity among “Good Wife” fans and Hennessy’s fanbases from her time on “Law & Order” and “Crossing Jordan,” the pairing seems ripe for a spinoff, which Preston tells Zap2it she would be all for.
“That would be fun, lots of people have expressed their interest in some kind of a spinoff,” says Preston. “I’m very flattered by that. No one who has the authority to actually do that has spoken to me about it, but I like to think that the fans imagine scenes between Elsbeth and all of her various relationships. It would be fun to see her off on her own.”
Sunday (Oct. 26) saw Preston wrap her two-episode arc for this fall on “The Good Wife,” but she adds that hopefully she’ll appear again in Season 6.
“I have my fingers crossed that they’ll have more for me. So far these are the only two. But this season, they’ve only shot about half of the episodes, so maybe there will be another moment. I would jump at the chance,” says Preston.
