My Weekend Crush

There is something so infinitely capable about Maura Tierney. Maybe it’s the way she always looks so steadily at you, with a gaze that gives nothing away. Or maybe it’s the way she has her hands pushed purposefully into her pockets, resting their utility until they’re needed most. But whatever it is, it has made her a favorite among the gay ladies since she put on some scrubs and went from nurse to doctor on “E.R.” When a breast cancer diagnosis forced her out of her starring role in “Parenthood” in 2009, I was so sad – for multiple reasons. One, of course, for the cancer. And two, selfishly, for not being able to see her on my TV again week in and week out. But now, healthy and ready, Maura will be back on TV on “The Good Wife,” not every week, but enough to give us that taste we all miss. Welcome back, Maura. Happy weekend, all.

I've liked her since NewsRadio. Great, great show.

Forget about ER or The Good Wife, after she sorted out her cancer issues, she was in the last two seasons of Rescue Me, as a cancer patient (!). That performance, with many one-on-one scenes with Dennis Leary, was absolutely breathtaking.

Oh how I love her. An I still am sad that she's not in Parenthood. I do love me some Lauren Graham, but the role would have been completely different with her in it. So excited to see her on The Good Wife!
