Juliette Lewis is coming to The Firm.
Lewis (“Natural Born Killers,” “Cape Fear”), an Oscar, Golden Globe and Emmy Award nominated actress, will play Tammy, 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, Ray. With a personality as arresting as her ever-changing hair color, Tammy is leery when Mitch accepts a deal to partner with a top law practice, as she’s not cut out for the conservative culture of a white shoe firm. Rennie is tapped to play Ray McDeere, 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. Despite a “highly un-ambitious” nature that stands in stark contrast to his Harvard-grad brother, Ray shares one key quality with Mitch: a loyalty that is unbreakable.
David Straiton (“House,” “Fringe”) is confirmed to direct the pilot episode which will commence production in Toronto this August. Helen Shaver has also joined the series as a producer and will direct multiple episodes.
