The recent annoucment of Jeffrey Dean Morgan playing the new private investigator for Alicia's (Julianna Margulies) firm in season 7 of The Good Wife, set off the rumor of him also being a new love interest for the legal lady.
In a recent interview with E! Online Morgan actually addressed the speculation. The entertainment publication caught up with Morgan while he was promoting his other show Extant at San Diego Comic Con. "We'll see. I don't know. I've been told a little bit of my character's background. I know that there's a lot of speculation that there might be some possible romance thing happening," he said. "And I know Julianna and I'll be happy to jump into that arena with her. So we'll see what happens."
Morgan also joked about how his co-star on Extant, who also plays his lover, Halle Berry, might not be too happy if this new situation were to arise.
"Halle's going to get pissed though!" he said. "She's going to get mad!...It's not a bad issue. I feel like it's an OK issue in my life!"
Morgan's character on The Good Wife has been described as "a calm, experienced hourly investigator."
The next chapter of the legal drama is set to premiere on CBS on Sunday, Oct. 4 at 9 p.m.
The season 6 finale, entitled 'Wanna Partner?' aired on CBS on May 10.
