You might recognize Paula Garces from her role as Maria, John Cho‘s ongoing object of affection in the Harold and Kumar series. That was hardly her first first major gig, but it was the one that put her on the map for members of the 18-35 male demographic everywhere. She also appeared on “The Shield” for two years, and most recently showed up in an episode of “The Good Wife.”

A word from Paula: “Hey, do you want to stick around for a while?”

The 70th Annual Peabody Award winners were announced today with a few surprise victories thrown into the mix. On the television side,”Men Of A Certain Age,” “The Good Wife,” Justified,” and The Pacific“ took home prizes. I guess the surprise here is that “Degrassi – ‘My Body Is A Cage’” walked away with honors. Which is a shock. If the ‘I’m So Excited’ episode of “Saved by the Bell” got the snub, then this should too.

Best known for her role on USA Network’s “Royal Pains,” Jill Flint has a history of recurring television roles and multi-episode character arcs. All in all, that probably means she has some degree of staying power; her characters are appealing and she makes them even more so with talent, looks, and a certain allure that’s difficult to quantify. Now portraying FBI agent Lana Delaney on CBS’s “The Good Wife,” Flint doesn’t appear to have any future projects in the works, but that’s likely to change soon.

She nearly took home an Emmy for her work on “Grey’s Anatomy,” and is currently lending her chops to CBS’s much-praised legal drama “The Good Wife.”

Though she’s best known these days as the adoptive mother of pretty-boy vampire Edward Cullen in the Twilight series, Elizabeth Reaser is more than just a pretend bloodsucker. She graduated from Julliard, did time on stage, nearly took home an Emmy for her work on “Grey’s Anatomy,” and is currently lending her chops to CBS’s much-praised legal drama “The Good Wife.” That’s not to say we don’t like her as a vampire, of course. We just have a thing for chicks who aren’t technically dead.

A word from Elizabeth: “I grew up subjecting my family to really bad shows in the living room. It’s what I love to do.”

You might recognize Dreama Walker from “Gossip Girl,” which would mean you watch “Gossip Girl.” It’s all good though, we understand. Okay, no we don’t. But if you want to see more of Dreama without constantly worrying that someone’s going to walk in on you listening to Blake Lively rant about purses or whatever, you should check out “The Good Wife,” Dreama’s latest television vehicle. Because legal drama makes for some manly television.
