It's a small world. For actors, the world is even tinier.
So it makes sense the group of first-time nominees we gathered to
take part in an Emmys roundtable -- Michelle Forbes ("The Killing"),
Josh Charles ("The Good Wife"), Johnny Galecki ("The Big Bang Theory")
and Walton Goggins ("Justfied") -- have a bit of history among them.
Galecki is the godfather of Goggins' son and Charles and Forbes
worked together in the HBO drama "In Treatment." And the connections
don't end there. Charles' costar on CBS' "The Good Wife," Christina
Baranski, has appeared on Galecki's "The Big Bang Theory" as Sheldon's
"The next thing I do, my character will be named Galecki or I won't do it," Goggins joked. (For more, see the video below)
The roundtable was moderated by Los Angeles Times TV critic Mary
McNamara last week in anticipation of Sunday's 63rd Primetime Emmy
Awards. Goggins and Charles are nominated in the supporting actor in a
drama category. Forbes is up for supporting actress in a drama category.
Galecki received his first Emmy nomination for lead actor in a comedy.
Showtracker will post additional clips from the gathering so check back for more.
