Entertainment One (eOne), Sony Pictures Television Networks, NBC and Global are proud to announce that Juliette Lewis (Natural Born Killers, Cape Fear) and Callum Keith Rennie (The Killing, Californication) are signed on to star in the new legal drama series The Firm, based on John Grisham's best-selling novel and executive-produced by John Grisham and Lukas Reiter. Lewis and Rennie join Josh Lucas (The Lincoln Lawyer, Sweet Home Alabama) who was previously announced to star as attorney Mitchell McDeere (the role originated by Tom Cruise in the film). David Straiton (Fringe) is confirmed to direct the pilot episode which will commence production in Toronto this August.
Juliette Lewis, a Oscar, Golden Globe and Emmy Award nominated actress, will play Tammy, Mitch's feisty, sexy receptionist, whose work life is made all the more tumultuous by her on-again, off-again relationship with Mitch's brother, Ray. With a personality as arresting as her ever-changing hair color, Tammy is leery when Mitch accepts a deal to partner with a top law practice, as she's not cut out for the conservative culture of a white shoe firm. Callum Keith Rennie is tapped to play Ray McDeere, Mitch's charming yet volatile older brother whose work as an investigator in Mitch's office is uniquely informed by his past stretch in prison for manslaughter. Despite a "highly un-ambitious" nature that stands in stark contrast to his Harvard-grad brother, Ray shares one key quality with Mitch: a loyalty that is unbreakable.Read More
