SpoilerTV BUZZ!

The suit says the managers got her on "Good Wife" and made her deal with L’Oreal but after she fired them, the actress stopped paying commissions, which amount to at least $420,000.

Julianna Margulies' former managers filed suit Monday charging that The Good Wife star owes them at least $420,000 for unpaid commissions and should continue to pay them 10 percent of what she makes on shows and for product deals that were signed while they were her representatives.

The suit was filed in Los Angeles Superior Court against Margulies and her “loan out” company Toast Productions on behalf of D/F Management, whose principals include Steve Dontanville, her former agent at ICM. The other principal of D/F is Frank Frattaroli. The suit was filed by L.A. attorney Mathew Rosengart. (Read the lawsuit here.)

Dontanville left ICM in 2000 after 17 years at the agency and joined the William Morris Agency, which he left in 2005. He became Margulies' personal manager in early 2009, according to the lawsuit, not long after she appeared in a short-lived TV series Canterbury’s Law. It was agreed she would pay her new managers 10 percent of whatever she earned from entertainment projects she initiated while they were guiding her career.

At ICM, says the suit, “Dontanville carefully helped take Margulies from a promising young newcomer to an internationally renowned television star who earned millions of dollars form her work on the television show ER and other projects.”
