"The Good Wife" heartthrob and Baltimore native Josh Charles was better behaved at this year's Emmy Awards because he wasn't there. After getting snubbed for a nomination this year, Charles attended last night's Ravens game with his pops. He tweeted a picture of the live game at M&T Bank Stadium along with the message: “Having so much fun at the Emmy's!” He also tweeted a picture of him and his father at the game with the message: “Me and my Pop, post game! No Uggs to be found.” What about that cryptic "bad behavior" reference earlier?

Josh Charles jogged down the steps to his seats with two sandwiches, one for himself and one for his dad, Allan, the Baltimore ad man. Charles was killed off last season in the television show "The Good Wife," but he is still a good son. The actor was back home to see the Orioles begin their postseason quest. He tweeted a picture Wednesday night of what he was packing for the trip: four O's T-shirts. "It's great to see this sea of orange," Charles said. "It's a sight to see. " He had a prediction for the five-game series against Detroit: "Orioles in five," Charles said.

It's not in the same league with "Who Shot J.R.?" or "Will they get off the island?" perhaps. But surely one of the hottest questions of this new fall TV season is whether Alicia Florrick ( Julianna Margulies) will go beyond the kiss-and-text she shared with fellow attorney Will Gardner ( Josh Charles) last year on "The Good Wife. " Publicity pictures for the second season of the CBS legal drama, which starts Tuesday night, feature Margulies seated on a couch between Charles and Chris Noth, who plays her philandering ex-con/lawyer husband (think Eliot Spitzer.)

In my April 1st preview of Amy Schumer's second season, I wrote about a sketch she does with Josh Charles spoofing Aaron Sorkin's TV style. "A double Baltimore hit: On April 15, Josh Charles guests stars, and he's terrific as one of Schumer's co-workers in a fast food restaurant," I wrote. "The co-stars alone would make this 30 minutes not to be missed on Tuesday nights this spring. " The piece aired last night with Charles and Schumer bringing trademark Sorkin urgency, anger, sexual frustration and angst to life in this wickedly clever clip.

I watched "The Good Wife" tonight because Josh Charles told me in an interview last week how moving he found his last moments on-camera as Will Gardner to be. I wanted to see if the power he felt in playing that last scene of Will calling Alicia to say he wanted to be with her came through onscreen. It did, it did, and then, it did some more. The poignancy of that last message and moment of tonight's episode cut to one of the great truths about the pain felt by those who survive the death of someone they love: the incredible sadness for what might have been and the desperate realization that the relationship is truly over and you can never go back, retrace your steps and try again.

"It's crazy," Josh Charles said in a telephone interview with The Sun late Monday night. "I didn't know it would be this intense -- the kindness and emotion of the emails, the tweets and the texts. It's like you get to watch your life after you're dead. It's bittersweet, but it's really, really special. " Josh Charles has been living in a rare and weird cultural space since Will Gardner, the character he played so compellingly the last five years on CBS, died in Sunday night's episode of "The Good Wife.

When Josh Charles first appeared opposite Julianna Margulies in "The Good Wife" on CBS in 2009, you couldn't help but wonder if this was going to be a breakthrough role for him. On Thursday, the one-time Baltimore School for the Arts student broke into the higher reaches of TV acting when he received his first Emmy nomination. As nominee for best supporting actor in a drama series, Charles is now going head-to-head with the likes of Andre Braugher of TNT's "Men of a Certain Age" and John Slattery of AMC's "Mad Men" — pretty refined company.
