Possible Contenders
Michael J. Fox "The Good Wife"
Scott Porter "The Good Wife"
Titus Welliver "The Good Wife"
Jeremy Irons "Law & Order: SVU"
Henry Ian Cusick "Law & Order: SVU"
Robert Morse "Mad Men"
Mark Moses "Mad Men"
Christopher Stanley "Mad Men"
Bob Newhart "NCIS"
Bruce Dern "Big Love"
Hal Holbrook "Sons of Anarchy"
Jack Huston "Boardwalk Empire"
Greg Antonacci "Boardwalk Empire"
Jonny Lee Miller "Dexter"
Peter Weller "Dexter"
Peter Gallagher "Rescue Me"
Richard Dreyfuss "Parenthood"
Michael Emerson "Parenthood"
John Corbett "Parenthood"
Beau Bridges "Brothers & Sisters"
Tim Matheson "Burn Notice"
Robert Patrick "Burn Notice"
Burt Reynolds "Burn Notice"
Ken Howard "Fairly Legal"
Gerald McRaney "Fairly Legal"
Brian Dennehy "Rizzoli & Isles"
Donnie Wahlberg "Rizzoli & Isles"
Henry Winkler "Royal Pains"
John Larroquette "White Collar"
Richard Schiff "White Collar"
Lennie James "The Walking Dead"
Norman Reedus "The Walking Dead"
Michael Rooker "The Walking Dead"
James Frain "True Blood"
Joe Manganiello "True Blood"

Robert Morse was nominated last year for Mad Men, and should get in again, as should veteran Bruce Dern in his stunning role in Big Love. I also think veterans Bob Newhart and Hal Holbrook will get in on name recognition for NCIS and Sons of Anarchy respectively. SVU has some nice potentials, with Irons having the most potential. I could also see some of the Parenthood guys getting in, if and only if the Emmy voters would recognize its brilliance (in all categories). Peter Weller and Jonny Lee Miller of Dexter were fantastic, were some of the guest stars of Burn Notice, especially good old Burt Reynolds. I also watch out for Emmy fave Beau Bridges, who was good the recently cancelled Brothers & Sisters.
