    the casting people for this show can do no wrong!

  2. Life on Mars, Terra Nova, Vegas. Jason O’ Mara still needs a TV comeback.

  3. Maggie says:

    PERFECT casting. love it!

  4. DL says:

    He actually gets to be Irish?! Awesome! It’d be cool if he became interested in Alicia (not romantically, just intrigued like Colin Sweeney and John Noble’s Matthew Ashbaugh) while courting Lockhart Gardner. And then when the split happens, there could be drama over whether he goes to Lockhart, or if he could be convinced to go to Florrick Agos.
    Sorry, I’m just inventing imaginary storylines. xD

  5. EJ says:

    I hope he doesn’t get blamed for the show’s demise if this is the show’s final season. Calling him a “show-killer” is so unfair. Paula Marshall, now SHE was a show-killer.

  6. Now I’ll start watching this again. Got bored with the storyline, but O’Mara Bright Eyes will bring me back for sure.

  7. Tav says:

    If they needed an attractive recurring lawyer they should’ve brought back that Jaime Lannister-looking fellow from season 1. The guy hadn’t actually passed the bar but he was still smart and savvy for a fake lawyer. He was also pretty keen on Alicia as I recall…

    • Sara says:

      Who? Excuse my terrible memory, but I don’t recall that storyline

      • Chris says:

        The one who helped her on the Orthodox Jew storyline with Jonas Stern’s daughter–it involved a downed arav wire and someone filing a lawsuit for tripping over it. He was practicing law without a degree. He accused will of burying him in paperwork in a previous case about lead paint on toys.

  9. Faye says:

    Looking forward to seeing Jason on the screen again.

  10. steven says:

    Did the people on Tvline hate Terra Nova so much, they didn’t mention that Jason was on that show?

    Love this guy! He needs to find a good tv show.
