The Good Wife’s Sexually Ambiguous Kalinda Gets a Love Interest

Throughout the first season of The Good Wife, sharp investigator Kalinda’s sexuality has remained mysterious: She had an affair with a male detective, flirted with a female FBI agent, and stonewalled when asked point blank, “Are you gay?” Even the actress who plays her, Archie Panjabi, refuses to give a straight answer. But, come season two, Kalinda’s getting a longer-term potential love interest — and he’s a dude. Scott Porter (Friday Night Lights' Jason Street) joins the cast as a law-firm detective who doesn't initially get along with Kalinda. But as is usually the case with people who hate each other on TV, “underneath their fractious interactions, there’s definite chemistry between these two.” [Ausiello Files/EW]
