“The Good Fight” star Nyambi Nyambi says he was “called the n-word” on Twitter in “so many different ways” after his character’s “It’s time to punch a few Nazis” scene in Season 3 of the CBS All Access drama.
“When it aired…the backlash that I was getting on Twitter,” Nyambi began Sunday at the Television Critics Association (TCA) press tour. “I heard so many different ways to, like, be called the ‘n-word’ — it was crazy.”
“But that’s what it is to be an artist, I guess, the kind of artist I want to be. Somebody who isn’t afraid to question the status quo and play in that arena,” he continued. “It was an interesting time, but one that I am really, really proud of.”
Watch Nyambi perform the soliloquy as character Jay Dipersia in the video above. The scene comes from Season 3, Episode 5 of the “Good Wife” spinoff.
Also Sunday at TCA, series co-creator Robert King announced that Michael J. Fox will reprise his “Good Wife” role of attorney Louis Canning on “The Good Fight’s” upcoming Season 4.
Additionally, Hugh Dancy is joining the cast as “one of the lawyers at the firm” Reddick, Boseman & Lockhart, King said. Zach Grenier, who played lawyer David Lee on “The Good Wife,” has been added to the show as a “regular.”
We do not yet have a premiere date for Season 4 of “The Good Fight,” but we do have the following description:
Season four of “The Good Fight” finds Reddick, Boseman & Lockhart navigating a very different landscape. After they lost their biggest client, Chumhum, and their founding partner’s name was tarnished, Reddick, Boseman & Lockhart was forced to accept an offer by a huge multi-national law firm, STR Laurie, to become a small subsidiary. Suddenly, all of their decisions can be second-guessed by the giant firm that is literally on top of them. While STR Laurie initially seem like benevolent overlords, we find Diane Lockhart (Christine Baranski) and her colleagues chafing at their loss of independence.
