Actor Josh Lucas Set To Star In NBC’s ‘The Firm’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 2nd, 2011

Hi Bryan Here….

NBC will be putting out a mid-season drama called ‘The Firm’ which is based on the 90′s film with Tom Cruise.  ‘The Firm’ was written by John Grisham and was a box office hit.  Well actor Josh Lucas (The Lincoln Lawyer, Sweet Home Alabama, American Psycho) will play the lead of Mitchell McDeere.  This marks the first television work for Josh Lucas.

The television series will pick up ten years after the events of the film and book.  If you remember McDeere was an associate who brought down a major law firm which was a huge front for the chicago mafia.  Now, after him and his family get out of witness protection, they are out to reclaim their lives, but they find out quickly that their dangerous past is still out there looking to hurt them.

I’m not so sure how well this will do.  Being on NBC, and being a dramatic violent story, I can only speculate that this will be watered down and not succeed past a season or two.  Mafia shows do well, but usually they tend to be on pay cable, not prime-time.  And Law shows do last a while, but I prefer most of my law shows to be comical.  Like ‘Boston Legal’.  So since Lucas played a lawyer recently and showed he was very much believable in that role, he will take on this major role with ease.

Your thoughts?

Movie Quotes

Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl (2003)
Murtogg:
This dock is off-limits to civilians.
Jack Sparrow:
I'm terribly sorry, I didn't know. If I see one, I shall inform you immediately.
[Jack makes to continue but is blocked by Murtogg and Mullroy]
Jack Sparrow:
Apparently there's some sort of high-toned and fancy to-do up at the fort, eh? How could it be that two upstanding gentlemen, such as yourselves, did not merit an invitation?
Murtogg:
Someone's got to make sure that this dock stays off-limits to civilians.
Jack Sparrow:
It's a fine goal, to be sure. But it seems to me... that a ship like that one, makes this one here seem a bit superfluous, really.
Murtogg:
Oh, the Dauntless is the power in these waters, true enough. But there's no ship as can match the Interceptor for speed.
Jack Sparrow:
I've heard of one, supposed to be very fast, nigh uncatchable: The Black Pearl.
Mullroy:
Well, there's no real ship as can match the Interceptor.
Murtogg:
The Black Pearl is a real ship.
Mullroy:
No, it's not.
Murtogg:
Yes it is, I've seen it.
Mullroy:
You've seen it?
Murtogg:
Yes.
Mullroy:
You haven't seen it.
Murtogg:
Yes, I have.
Mullroy:
You've seen a ship with black sails that's crewed by the damned, and captained by a man so evil that Hell itself spat him back out?
Murtogg:
No.
Mullroy:
No.
Murtogg:
But I have seen a ship with black sails.
[Jack quietly slips passed them unnoticed]
Mullroy:
Oh, and no ship that's not crewed by the damned and captained by a man so evil that Hell itself spat him back out could possibly have black sails, therefore couldn't possibly be any other ship than the Black Pearl. Is that what you're telling me?
Murtogg:
[nods] No.
Mullroy:
Like I said, there's no real ship as can match the Interceptor.
