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?

Mike, you're wrong.

Don Corleone, you once said the day would come when me and Tessio could form our own families. Until today I would never think of such a thing but now I must ask your permission.

Michael Corleone:
There are negotiations being made that are going to answer all of your questions and solve all of your problems. That's all I can tell you right now. Carlo, you grew up in Nevada. When we make our move there you're going to be my right hand man. Tom Hagen is no longer Consigliari. He's going to be our lawyer in Vegas. That's no reflection on Tom it's just the way I want it. Besides, if I ever help who's a better Consigliari than my father. That's it.
[Everyone except Hagen leaves]
Tom Hagen:
Mike, why am I out?
Michael Corleone:
You're not a wartime Consigliari, Tom. Things could get rough with the move we're making.
Don Vito Corleone:
Tom, I advised Michael. I never thought you were a bad Consigliari. I thought Santino was a bad Don, rest in peace. Michael has all my confidence as do you. But there are reasons why you must have nothing to do with what's going to happen.
Tom Hagen:
Maybe I could help.
Michael Corleone:
You're out, Tom.
