I remember when John Grisham was the go to guy for lawyer/mystery novels back in the 90's. The Firm was Grisham's first novel that I ever read and I couldn’t wait for it to become a movie. Eventually the book was made into a movie starring Tom Cruise, Ed Harris and Gene Hackman. I wasn’t the biggest (and still not) Cruise fan, but I figured I’d take a chance. I was happy that I took a chance, until the end. I despise when the ending is not the same as the book. Everything ended all hunky dory in the movie, not so in the book (this happened with Pelican Brief, and I still don’t know who did it in that movie.)
When I heard that NBC was creating a television series after the film, I really knew then that Hollywood was running out of ideas. I mean how many times can Mitch (the main character) be put in these situations? I had my doubts until I saw who the new Mitch McDeere....was
Yes you see that correctly, that is Josh Lucas. NBC must have been reading my mind because just recently I had asked myself, "Whatever happened to that super fox Josh Lucas?" I am so glad that he is working. Lucas has such talent and charm, the women will be watching just to look at him (or at least I will.) The always entertaining Juliet Lewis is also in the cast as Mitch's secretary. I love crazy.
Let’s see how the first episode goes...
