Natural Born Killers star Juliette Lewis- also known as Brad Pitt’s pre-Gwyneth and Jen ex-flame- is joining the cast of NBC’s new drama The Firm.
The show is the second adaptation of the John Grisham novel after the 1993 film starring Tom Cruise, and Lewis will be taking on the role originally played by Holly Hunter in the big-screen version. Lewis will play the secretary Tammy to Josh Lucas’ starring role of Mitch. Entertainment Weekly describes Lewis’ role as 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.”
Also joining the cast of The Firm, which starts shooting this fall, is Callum Keith Rennie as Ray, described as 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.”
The Firm will premiere in NBC’s midseason lineup.
