Morning Brew – Kalinda’s love interest gets cut from “The Good Wife”

Good morning!

UK viewers, did you watch Stephen Fry: Out There last night? It focused on LGBT issues, including a visit to Uganda where the host spoke with a young lesbian about corrective rape. Part Two will see Stephan heading to Russia.


Tomboy director Celine Sciamma went in a totally new direction for her next film. It’s an animated story called My Life as a Cucumber.

Bestselling author Wally Lamb has a lesbian character in his new novel, We Are Water. I know what I’m reading next!

Bookforum writes “Why Kate Millet Still Matters.” The out feminist activist/writer was recently inducted into the the National Women’s Hall of Fame in Seneca Falls, NY.

Um, so Kalinda’s new love interest? No longer happening. TVLine reports:

Rylance did shoot several scenes for the Sept. 29 opener, but they were cut for time, per a Good Wife insider, who stresses that the English actress was technically only committed to doing one episode (with the possibility of it evolving into a recurring gig).

This makes me very unhappy. The season is already devoid of Kalinda and now it appears her whole storyline might revolve around getting jilted by Alicia. Not a good look!

Carlos Torres (aka Callie’s dad) is coming back to Grey’s Anatomy for a “Callie-centric episode” airing in November.
