"Well, it's The Good Wife. He's dead!" David Letterman joked, announcing the star to the show.

"I went downstairs, and I saw by our mailbox, the neighbors across the street, who I don't even know, had left my wife and I a really beautiful note just saying that we feel like a family member had died and we know this is just a TV show and all that. But it was, I have to say, I was very touched by it," Charles said of the reaction to his character's death.

Addressing the mourning 'Good Wife' fans directly, Charles looked down the camera and said "A lot of know, the response on Twitter has been much the same and I just want to say to the fans that, you know, I really appreciate all of your comments."
