    I know this may seem to be a bit of a silly question, especially since it’s likely that The Good Wife may very well have another 2-3 seasons left in it, but I was curious at the point in which TGW does get cancelled, do you think Juliana Margulies will find herself with another series down the line or does it seem like this may very well be her last lead role as  series?

    She had incredible luck starring on E.R. for all those years and then it took decades really for her to find “The Good Wife”.    Do you think she’ll find herself with a third hit series someday?

    I don’t think it’s over. She’s a respected actress and The Good Wife is a respected drama series, as well. (I have to wonder if we’d even be having this conversation if she wasn’t snubbed for Lead Actress this year, a bizarre exclusion and one I have to believe was a fluke.)

    I think she’d find a nice home on a cable series–she has talked before about the rigorous broadcast network schedule, especially in light of having a young son–but I’m not sure which one. FX seems off-brand for her, more and more it seems like AMC really lucked out with Mad Men and Breaking Bad. Maybe HBO or Showtime, though?

    Sharon Gless. 

    Also Julia Louis-Dreyfus.

    Also Connie Britton sort of.

    I think she’ll be fine.  As long as she wants to keep working I think she will.   She was incredible lucky with ER.  And lucky again to find TGW after one or two flops she starred in along the way.  (Canterbury’s Law – Oof).  But she’s become a beloved actress in the eyes of the industry (see Emmy, GG and the popularity contest that is the SAG Awards) and hardworking.  She’ll continue to get scripts sent to her.  I think whether or not she goes for another series it’s up to her.  

    I bet we see her next on cable though.  They’re writing better (and more) material for her age group.  If you want to star as lead on a network drama  TV show in your 50s you better be man whos name ends in “-ark Harmon.”

    And that’s pretty optimistic about The Good Wife.  I say that as it hit Syndication this will be it, maybe 1 more unless they slash budget big time (or move to cable).   But the back end can’t be that profitable for this show.

    I think about all the cable shows I’ve watched in recent years and I don’t see her fit in any of them. She’s just too… um… network. These days network shows worthy of her caliber are few and far between, so she may very well end up out of work for a couple of years or more.

    Well, I do think cable is moving past the anti-hero drama fare of the last 2000’s with the conclusions of Breaking Bad and Mad Men. I have to think that she is a respected and highly-regarded enough actress that some cable network would jump at the chance to work with her. I outlined in my first post that I’m not sure she would want to return to broadcast because of the demanding schedule (not to mention that quality dramas on broadcast are few and far between).

    Maybe not right after TGW is over, but I certainly don’t see her career ending.

    Ok this is a daft thread, and, might I assume, a result of her emmy snub. Would you say the same thing about Eric Stonestreet then? I don’t think her snub was as intentional as some people in this forum would like. For sure, TGW is no longer having it’s day in the sun, but to assume it means a dead career of its actors once the show finishes is bull. Time can only tell how she, or any other TGW actor will do. Would you ask the same questions about the cast of Breaking Bad too? It’s offensive to single it down to one actor. Shut it down.

    Her career will be just fine! Whether she goes in the film route, stage, or another series, I think Julianna Margulies will be able to find work post-“The Good Wife.” Personally, I think she’ll land another television series at some point. All of this should have gone in the thread for “The Good Wife.”

    She won’t have a hard time landing another TV series role, whether it’s a lead or juicy supporting one, cable or network. I can see she become the next Showtime/HBO dramedy lady, but a pure comedy won’t suit her. However, I feel she may want to take a break after The Good Wife ends to spend more time with her family.

    Weird thread.

    Plenty of people have had more than one, two or three hit series. I always think about Courtney Thorne Smith, that girl has gone from show to show (hit or close to a hit) since Melrose Place without missing a beat. Sharon Gless has had three long running shows, Julia Louis Dreyfus and Tyne Daly have won Emmys for three different shows, Dreyfuss got those shows back to back.

    And Margulies was great on Scrubs, so a comedy isn’t out of the question either. If she doesn’t get something as big as ER or The Good Wife it’ll probably be her own decision. She’ll want to stay with her family after two successful tv shows and enjoy her money.

    I think it is easier if you are a man than if you are a woman… people like Jane Kaczmarek, Calista Flockhart, Susan Dey, Cybill Shepperd, Roxeanne Arnold, Kathy Baker were in hit shows and nowadays they are not anywhere around… She has not a big name like others such us Kathy Bates, Glenn Close but she might do well afterwards… 
    Her big problem is age and her mouth… she sometimes is a bit rude with her co-stars, (or co-star-s roles, cough Kalinda cough)
