PHOTOS: Alan Cumming films scenes for ‘The Good Wife’ in Rego Park

BY KELLY MARIE MANCUSO

Cast and crew members from the hit CBS drama “The Good Wife” gathered at The Woodhaven House in Rego Park on Monday afternoon to film scenes for the upcoming season.

The show stars Julianna Margulies as Alicia Florrick, a defense attorney who successfully transitions from scorned politician’s wife to one of the top litigators at the law firm Stern, Lockhart & Gardner.

Margulies was not on the set at the Woodhaven House, but Monday’s shoot drew her castmate Alan Cumming of “Cabaret” and “X-Men” fame.

Cumming plays campaign strategist and political consultant Eli Gold on “The Good Wife.” His character acts as an adviser to Florrick’s scandal-plagued ex-husband Peter (played by “Sex and the City” star Chris Noth) during his bid for higher office. Cumming shot interior scenes, as well as an exterior scene in which he paced alongside of the bar while on his cellphone.

Margo Martindale, star of “The Americans,” was also part of Monday’s filming. Martindale, a new addition to “The Good Wife” cast, plays campaign strategist Ruth Eastman, who advises Peter Florrick during his presidential campaign.

Scenes for the upcoming season were also filmed at nearby Adam’s Bagel Shop and Deli located at 63-56 Woodhaven Blvd.

“The Good Wife” airs Sundays on CBS, with its seventh season premiering on Oct. 4 at 9 p.m.
