Josh Lucas Confirmed for NBC's The Firm

The Firm by John Grisham

Producers confirmed today that Josh Lucas (The Lincoln Lawyer, Little Murder, Shadows and Lies) will play attorney Mitchell McDeere in the TV series adaptation of the 1991 legal thriller The Firm by John Grisham. Tom Cruise played the character in the 1993 film adaptation, also titled The Firm.

The storyline is set 10 years after the events in the book (and film). McDeere and his family emerge from isolation in the Federal Witness Protection program to reclaim their lives and their future -- only to find that past dangers are still lurking and new threats are everywhere.

The Firm is expected to be on NBC's mid-season schedule, tentatively set for Sundays at 10 PM (ET/PT).

  1. In Sweet Home Alabama, Josh resemlbled a younger John Grisham, so the casting seems appropriate
