Fans of The Good Wife are pumped up for the show’s spin-off, The Good Fight. There are several familiar faces on The Good Fight including protagonist Diane Lockhart (Christine Baranski) and fellow attorney Lucca Quinn (Cush Jumbo). After Diane’s plan to retire in the south of France vanishes before her eyes, she finds herself back in court. One attorney Diane and Lucca will butt heads with is Colin Morrello, a rising star in the infamous state attorney’s office.
[The Good Fight is available on CBS All-Access where new episodes stream every Sunday]
Colin Morrello (Justin Bartha, Doug in The Hangover movies) is no Will Gardner (Josh Charles, The Good Wife) although they have a lot in common. For starters, they look alike (see photo above). Both are attorneys who look good in suits, both are eligible bachelors, and both are attracted to colleagues they shouldn’t be attracted to (Will to the famously married Alicia Florrick; Colin to rival Lucca Quinn). Here are a handful of notable comparisons between Colin and Will:
- Colin is an Assistant District Attorney in the state’s attorney’s office — Will was partner in a swanky law firm and tried to stay away from the state’s attorney’s office, particularly when Peter Florrick was in office.
- Colin’s character is “loosely based on a JFK Jr. type who comes from a dynastic political family in Chicago” — Will was a lone wolf type.
- Colin is 5’8″ but seems to tower over people — Will was 5’11”.
- Colin is alive — Will is not!
The Good Fight premieres on February 19 on CBS. After that, episodes are available weekly on CBS All-Access, where you can also watch all 142 episodes of The Good Wife.
