Whether it was canoodling with George Clooney in the ER or as playing homicide detective on the streets of New York City, the cast of The Good Wife has enjoyed a vast array of experiences on television.
Long before most of them arrived in (fictional) Chicago.
Indeed, before anyone ever hear of Lockhart/Gardner or Florrick/Agos, these stars were all over TV, both here and across the pond.
From Scottish soap operas to children's shows... from Sex and the City to some football under the Friday Night Lights, you may be surprised where these actors appeared before they became our favorite group of TV attorneys.
Take a look below and check out the The Good Wife cast before they were stars.
Don't forget, you can always watch The Good Wife online any time here at TV Fanatic.
