NBC's The Firm Casts Deadwood Alum as Abby
Based on John Grisham’s best-selling novel but picking up 10 years later, the midseason series finds Mitch (played by Josh Lucas, The Lincoln Lawyer) and Abby trying to start a new life in Washington, D.C. Tom Cruise and Jeanne Tripplehorn played the marrieds in the 1993 movie.
The Firm‘s cast also includes Juliette Lewis (Natural Born Killers) as Tammy, Mitch’s feisty receptionist, and Callum Keith Rennie (The Killing) as Ray McDeere, Mitch’s volatile older brother. Production starts in August in Toronto.
In addition to her turn as Deadwood‘s Alma, Parker’s TV resume includes Swingtown, the Canadian series Shattered (where she worked opposite Rennie), and an arc on the upcoming season of Dexter.
