Juliette Lewis to Play Holly Hunter’s Role in The Firm

Two more actors have made partner with NBC's midseason drama The Firm, and one is a very interesting choice indeed. NBC announced today that its John Grisham adaptation, which was already set to star Josh Lucas in the leading role that Tom Cruise played in the 1993 movie, has added both Callum Keith Rennie and the reliably wiggy Juliette Lewis to its supporting cast. The former will play Lucas's brother, while the latter is taking on the role of colorful receptionist Tammy, a part that Holly Hunter was Oscar-nominated for. This, in addition to Rupert Grint telling Regis and Kelly that Lewis is his No. 1 crush, makes for an interesting week for Juliette Lewis! (Though it's probably always interesting for Juliette Lewis.)
