NBC announced on Tuesday (July 12) that Juliette Lewis is set to take on the role of Tammy in NBC’s television version of John Grisham’s novel. The events are said to take place 10 years after the movie version of the novel ended. You still with us?
Lewis is joining Josh Lucas who is taking on the lawyer role of Mitch McDeere, the character Tom Cruise once made famous in the movie. Also joining the cast is The Killing’s Callum Keith Rennie.
Juliette Lewis’ character Tammy is quoted as Mitch’s (Josh Lucas) “feisty, sexy receptionist, whose work life is made all the more tumultuous by her on-again, off-again relationship with Mitch’s brother.”
Callum Keith Rennie will of course play the brother Ray.
The Firm is expected to start production in August with a midseason air date in the works. NBC revealed that The Firm’s pilot will be directed by David Straiton.
