When 'The Good Wife' left off last season, Julianna Margulies and Josh Charles were, after seasons worth of build-up, finally making out in an elevator. Charles said Wednesday on 'The Talk' (weekdays, syndicated on CBS) that the new season will pick up just minutes after that scene, and get much steamier from there. He also celebrated his 40th birthday with the 'Talk' crew and audience.
"It does start off right afterwards," said Charles of 'The Good Wife' premiere. "It's just going to keep deepening all the characters." He also promised some surprises in the premiere episode. Like maybe nudity? "Maybe," he said.
Since Charles turns 40 on Thursday, 'The Talk' brought the Baltimore native a few gifts to remind him of home, including 40 cookies from Bergers Bakery and a football signed by some players on the Baltimore Ravens. The audience seemed to want a couple of cookies, too, and Charles gave one enthusiastic fan one of his cookies and a kiss on the cheek. It wasn't in an elevator, but she seemed pretty excited about it anyway.
