“Natural Born Killers” star Juliette Lewis and “The Killing’s” Callum Keith Rennie are set to star in NBC’s new legal drama “The Firm,” based on the best-selling novel by John Grisham.
Lewis, an Oscar nominee, will take on the role of Tammy, a feisty and sexy receptionist who is involved with her boss’ brother, Ray. She is described as having “a personality as arresting as her ever-changing hair color.”
Rennie will take on the role of Ray, a charming yet volatile investigator whose work is informed by his time served in prison for manslaughter.
Josh Lucas (“Sweet Home Alabama”) stars as attorney (and Tammy’s boss and Ray’s brother) Mitchell McDeere. (Tom Cruise took on the role in the 1993 film.)
The pilot, which goes into production in Toronto in August, will be directed by “Fringe’s” David Straiton.
