Scoop: Meet Fairly Legal's New Legal Eagle

USA Network’s Fairly Legal is expanding its ranks for Season 2, starting with the addition of Aussie actor Ryan Johnson as a new series regular.

An alum of such Down Under fare as Home and Away and Out of the Blue, Johnson will play Ben Grogan, a sharp, up-and-coming trial attorney who is not as concerned with “the right and wrong” of a situation as he is maximizing his financial gain. Our sister site Deadline first reported on his casting.

  3. Sue says:

    I wonder if Ryan will get to use his own accent or if he’ll be playing American. Early 2012 for Season 2? Hurry up already! LOL

    As long as they get rid of that Justin character I’ll be happy.

  5. Kat says:

    He’s a cutie, but I don’t want him interfering in Kate and Justin’s life. Let Ryan find his own girlfriend and leave Kate alone…

  6. Angus says:

    Look out, America – this guy is scorching. Ryan Johnson is one of the best of thew new breed of Aussie actors and has been waiting for his big break. He is a cut above.

    So I take it fairly legal isn’t airing again? Why, I loved that show. It’s already September 2012 and no show. I am disappointed.
