Charles is set to play Daniel Logan, a self-made businessman working in the fragrance industry. In the show, his character will attempt to bottle the smell of sex and market an aphrodisiac to the public so he seeks out Michael Sheen and Lizzy Caplan‘s lead character William Masters and Virginia Johnson for their expertise.

Charles is best known for starring as Will Gardner on “The Good Wife,” who was dramatically gunned down in an explosive courtroom scene that took fans completely by surprise (TheWrap reported). He is currently filming the TV series, “Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp.”
