{Professor Agos} Cary Appreciation #51- Can't think of a title, but we were always team Cary!

Welcome to the 51th Cary Agos
Appreciation Thread

The Story

Cary is introduced as a young and ambitious lawyer at Lockhart/Gardner. He is described as an overachiever and studied at Harvard University. Like Alicia Florrick, Cary is a new associate at the law firm in 2009.
At first, he comes across like a passive aggressive foil for the show's main character.
While he still competes with her for a second-year associate position, Cary actually has a lot to offer, he's adept at research and is eager to learn. He and Alicia have teamed up on multiple occasions.
In "Hi", Cary is under the influence of hallucinegenic mushrooms with "an old friend from the Peace Corps" believing he has the day off, but is not ratted out by Alicia, thus gaining new respect for her, and states, "It's in my nature to be competitive, but I don't want you to lose."

At the end of the first season, Cary has joined the State's Attorney's office under Glenn Childs.
He is asked to obtain information on previous co-worker Kalinda Sharma, but instead opts to tell her that she is being investigated.
Cary is the one who first finds out of Peter and Kalinda's one night stand, but does not tell anyone about it.
He is re-hired by the new State's Attorney Peter Florrick. Later he is promoted to Deputy State Attorney but quickly learns that there is a downside to his job,
especially when he has to go against his former bosses and co-workers, or Peter Florricks and Wendy Scott Car's personal vendettas.
After struggling with his co-workers and several new problems he admits being in an in-office relationship with a fellow ASA, which results in him demoted.
Being stuck in a small cubicle, fighting for his believes and failing miserably,
his unhappiness is notices my former nemesis and co-worker Alicia which results in her suggesting him to her bosses when his old firm is looking into hiring someone.
In the middle of being in talks with Lockhart-Gardner to get re-hired he gets fired by Peter after he found out that Cary was looking for another job.
But for once the luck is on his side because a few days later he indeed is Welcomed back to the Dark Side, as Alicia refers to his return to the firm.

Soonish through, he starts to realize that his timing was once again off as the firm gets into huge financial troubles. After losing a complete floor, he doesn't even get an office but later, thanks to Clarke Hayden gets to share an office with Alicia. When everything, financial troubles aside, seems to go back to normal he runs into his father, with whom had no contact in a very long time.
But just when he finally lets his guard down he has to come to realization that his Dad was once again just using him, Life for Cary Agos, apparently never was as easy as it might look.
A few months later the firm is offering all the 4years partnerships to save the firm, but with disagreements and doubts, Alicia and Cary team up against their bosses in a mock trial and their real feelings about everything that has happened at the firm comes out and Cary even suggest at a secret meeting if it wouldn't be for the best if they both left and do their own thing: Florrick, Agos & Associates.

A few days later though, Alicia admits to Cary that they did offer her the partnership after all and that she took. Once again Alicia got everything while he only got a front row seat to her success.
Followed by the events of Alicia being named partner, Cary stills plays with the idea with starting his own firm but gets caught by Kalinda, to his surprise though she won't tell everyone about it and for the first time, he realizes,
Kalinda is really on his side and he is ready to take everything that the future throws at be continued

TVFanatic: With apologies to Damon Salvatore,
he may now be my favorite character on TV.
Played brilliantly by Matt Czuchry - with just the right combination of swagger,
self-confident and the occasional vulnerability -
he's epitomizes what The Good Wife does so well:
portray layered characters who excel at their jobs
and reside permanently in the grey.

AvClub : But I've very appreciative of Matt Czuchry's performance
and he acquitted himself well in the spotlight tonight. I’m sure all will become clear in upcoming episodes, but as to this week,
if I had to choose a stand-out performance,
I would nominate Matt Czuchry as Cary…
As Cary is currently the only ADA who’s assigned to Lockhart Gardner cases,
that meant that this week, Matt took centre stage –
and did brilliantly – in every regard. I hope he’ll carry on being very much
in the spotlight, because it’s where he deserves to be. Cary Agos — “The Good Wife”: Originally cast as a smarmy, yuppy antagonist to the titular Good Wife, Alicia Florrick, Agos has since grown into a fully formed and fully lovely character. I hate Matt Czuchry on “Gilmore Girls” so was prepared to hate him forever here. Damnit. He’s too great. Sporting excellent sexual tension with Archie Panjabi and a lovely (though sometimes tenuous) camaraderie with Alicia, he’s become one of my favorite in a show of packed to the rafters with monstrously talented actors. I have to add that Matt Czuchry is superb in this role
because he never overplays anything;
his performance is subtle, powerful and memorable.
And here I thought I could only see him as Logan Huntzberger.

Matt Czuchry about Cary

"He’s very ambitious. He’s willing to do what it takes to get to the top." November, 2009

"I will say that there are certain storylines where Cary falters under the pressure and where [he] rises above the pressure.
A first associate is going to make mistakes, but you can also see his potential." January 2010

"I wouldn’t necessarily say that Cary’s gonna turn bad,
although that is part of the fun of that character —
it’s not a complete surprise that he would turn so quickly. But even Darth Vader’s got a little bit of good in him.
He throws the Emperor over in the end. So I would say that even if Cary goes bad,
he can still be like Darth Vader and still have a little good in him.
He is gonna be a little bit different making that change,
at least for the beginning of that storyline, because he is still feeling that loss and that burn.
That drives his ambition, which comes back in a big way here" May, 2010

"He’s a guy who knows success. He went to the best schools. He had the best job. He was fired from that job and immediately got another one.
He’s always been able to navigate his way through life and
he’s confident he knows the law.
He also sees the benefit of representing innocent people.
As he says, “I like the moral clarity.” " February, 2011

"With Cary, what we've learned is his sense of maturity. Losing the competition humbled him ... So I think all those things are going to be important,
whether he goes back to the firm or not, he has to take all that he's learned with him
and that will keep it new and interesting and fresh." February 2011

"I love trying to capture all of Cary’s different shades of vulnerability, cockiness, and ambition. You’re never quite sure what his motives are.” April, 2012

"I believe [the change came] when Cary’s father came in and tried to use him for some help with Diane,
and Cary stood up to his father and said, “No, I’m not going to help you.” That was really a turning point for Cary
in terms of realizing that he has to make his own way [regarding] what he wants for his own life…
So there’s a new confidence in Cary and that is something
that is going to continue to grow throughout the rest of the season." February 2013
