Juliette Lewis has been cast in the role of Tammy in the legal drama “The Firm.” The NBC mid-season replacement will also star Josh Lucas as Mitch McDeere and Callum Keith Rennie as Ray. Tammy is “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,” said NBC of the role, reported by the Orlando Sentinel.
The television series is the latest incarnation of John Grisham’s bestselling book of the same title, published in 1991. A film version starred Tom Cruise as McDeere, David Strathairn as Ray and Holly Hunter as Tammy in 1993. Hunter was nominated for an Academy Award for her portrayal of Tammy.
