'The Good Wife's' Josh Charles on His Dramatic Exit: 'I Always Wanted to Do Right by the Show'

The unexpected development came out of Josh Charles' decision to exit the series -- one he made near the end of season four. Citing the grueling network production schedule ("there were moments of being burnt"), Charles -- whose only other TV-starring roles were Sports Night and In Treatment -- "thought long and hard about" departing at the height of the critically acclaimed CBS drama's run.
Plus, "Mad Men" star Jon Hamm also jokingly fields questions about the fate of Don Draper during THR's Drama Actor Roundtable: "Well, I die. I think we can say that."
