‘The Good Fight’ Casts Justin Bartha

Actor Justin Bartha has joined the cast of CBS All Access’ “The Good Fight.”

Bartha will play Colin, a rising star in the state attorney’s office and Chicago’s most eligible bachelor. Romantic sparks fly when he finds himself going up against Lucca, played by Cush Jumbo, in the courtroom.

“Whenever you’re looking for a romantic lead, you look for someone who can play the comedy and the sexuality, but even more importantly is the intelligence,” said series creators and executive producers Robert and Michelle King. “And that’s what we love about Justin: he can play all three: the comedy and the sexuality, but he’s also convincing as a tough intellectual foe to Cush Jumbo in court. We couldn’t be happier.”

Bartha was most recently a series regular on Fox’s “Cooper Barrett’s Guide to Surviving Life.” His other credits include NBC’s “The New Normal” and “The Hangover” and “National Treasure” feature films. He is represented by CAA.

The Good Fight” is a spinoff from CBS drama “The Good Wife.” The new series, from CBS Television Studios, will premiere on the CBS broadcast network in February, with subsequent new episodes available on streaming service CBS All Access. It will be the first original scripted series exclusive to the service. Bartha joins a cast that already includes Jumbo, Christine Baranski, Rose Leslie, and Delroy Lindo.
