Scoop! Harry's Law Retains Mark Valley as New Series Regular, Jean Smart as Guest Star

Boston Legal alum Mark Valley is returning to David E. Kelley’s courtroom, as a new series regular on Harry’s Law.

Most recently seen as a Human Target (and before that, on Fringe), Valley is joining NBC’s sophomore legal dramedy as, no, not Boston Legal eagle Brad Chase, but Oliver Richard, one of two new attorneys joining Harriett Korn’s law firm this fall.

Karen Olivo (The Good Wife) has been cast as Harry’s other new hire, Cassie Reynolds.

Also on the docket for Harry’s Law: Emmy-winning 24 alum (and former governor of Hawaii) Jean Smart has been booked for a three-episode arc as Roseanna Remmick, the D.A. prosecuting the high-profile murder trial featuring guest star Alfred Molina (Law & Order: LA) as the accused aka Harry’s client.

The casting of Valley and Olivo fills the void left by original cast members Brittany Snow and Aml Ameen, neither of whom is continuing with the series. Also, Christopher McDonald aka Tommy Jefferson has been bumped up to series regular status.

Harry’s Law returns September 21, in its new time slot of Wednesdays at 9/8c
