Michael J. Fox to Make Rush Limbaugh's Fantasy a Reality on The Good Wife
Remember back in 2006 when Rush Limbaugh came under fire for imitating the tremors that afflicted Michael J. Fox during a televised political ad for stem cell research, suggesting that Fox had exaggerated his Parkinson's Disease symptoms for show? Well, now it looks like Fox will be engaging in his own game of Rush Limbaugh role-play, and it could even win him an Emmy.
According to the Orlando Sentinel, The Good Wife has cast Fox as "a shrewd and cynical litigator" that will contend with Julianna Margulies' character in a class-action lawsuit. CBS confirmed Fox's arc, saying that his character, Simon Canning, "is willing to use anything in court, including symptoms of his neurological condition, to create sympathy for his otherwise unsympathetic client: a giant pharmaceutical company." Fox faking it? Giant pharmaceuticals? This is a Rush Limbaugh wet dream, right here.
