After a few relatively loveless seasons, The Good Wife is turning it up a notch when it comes to romance in season seven, and star Julianna Margulies thinks it's about time.
"She needs it. It's been a long time," Margulies told ET of her character Alicia Florrick.
The proverbial log that's been added to Alicia's fire is investigator Jason Crouse (Jeffrey Dean Morgan).
"When you've got a Jeffrey Dean Morgan around... I mean, don't be stupid. You should jump at the chance," Margulies said.
By the way Morgan describes his character's introduction on the show, fans should expect Alicia and Jason's chemistry to hit right off the bat.
"I meet her in a job interview and I would describe it as sparky," Morgan said. "I think it's a little sparky. I think we're trying to play down the sparky, but it's there, so what are you going to do?"
Another sexy addition to the show is Vanessa Williams, whose beauty actually distracted Margulies during filming.
"I made a terrible fool of myself," Margulies said. "We had a huge, hilarious dinner scene last week and it was her first scene with me and her eyes are so stunning I couldn't remember a line."
While most shows start to wean when they've been on the air for six seasons, Good Wife viewers have remained loyal. Among the show’s fans is Hillary Clinton, as the world found out through a batch of emails made public in August.
"I introduced her at an event once, and she said she was a fan of the show, but I thought she had to say that," Margulies said. "Then when I read it in the emails I was like, 'Yes!'"
The Good Wife returns to CBS at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Sunday.
