Oh, just as long as the woman in the picture next to him isn’t dead. I don’t need anymore shake ups on the Good Wife next season.

I loved the character of Billy Clyde Tuggle, he was unforgettable, and it Matthew Cowles who made him that way. I wish I’d known he was on AMC again-I stopped watching it many years ago but would have tuned in again just to see mr BC Tuggle again! Thank you, Matthew, and rest peacefully.

OMG he was such a great actor. I loved his role on All My Children when soap operas were great. I did not realize he was married to Christine Baranski. What a great acting duo. RIP Mr Cowles and condolences to his wife and family.
