Broadway actress Christine Baranski is promoting her latest TV show, The Good Fight, a spin-off of CBS hit series The Good Wife. This time around Baranski is the star of the show (without Julianna Margulies playing the good wife Alicia Florrick) and it is definitely her time to shine. She recently went on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert to talk about her character Diane Lockhart, who was about to retire in the South of France until a friend stole all her money in a Ponzi scheme.
But Colbert turned attention back to Baranski herself when he showed the audience a photo of Baranski sitting in a New York City taxi cab with an ad for The Good Fight top of the cab. Baranski tells a charming story about asking the cab driver to wait while she took pictures of herself. She told the cab driver: “I’m sorry mister but that’s me on top of the taxi cab. And next week, I won’t be on top of the taxi cab.” Her story reminds Sex and the City fans of the time Carrie Bradshaw and friends waiting in the rain (with champagne) to see her photo on the side of a city bus. But Baranski’s story has a happier ending. See video below.
The Good Fight premieres on Sunday February 19 at 8pm on CBS. After that, episodes are available weekly on CBS All-Access, where you can also watch all 142 episodes of The Good Wife.
