    James Spader to join cast of "The Practice"

    Kelley subpoenas 'Practice' partner
    Daily Variety

    David E. Kelley has begun the process of rebuilding "The Practice," bringing in James Spader to fill the void left by the soon-to-depart Dylan McDermott.

    In addition, actress Rhona Mitra --- most recently seen in "Sweet Home Alabama" and "The Life of David Gale" --- has been approached about joining the skein, though no deal has been worked out.

    In a move that stunned his own actors and possibly ABC execs, Kelley last month fired most of the stars of "The Practice," including series lead McDermott. Move was an economic reaction to the Alphabet's dramatically cutting its license fee for the show.

    A spokeswoman for the producer said Spader's deal wasn't yet done, but Kelley nonetheless issued a statement anticipating Spader will be on the set when "The Practice" begins shooting its new season later this summer.

    I had hoped to break the news to everyone myself, but...
    When you're ten years old and a car drives by and splashes a puddle of water all over you, it's hard to decide if you should go to school like that or try to go home and change and probably be late. So while he was trying to decide, I drove by and splashed him again. - Jack Handey

    On the subject of James Spader, I saw a movie last night on Cinemax with him. I don't remember what it was...and I didn't watch it, but I did recognize the guy!

    I like James Spader on this show. He brings a swarmy, maybe has a heart, character to the show. I dont miss Bobby what his name at all.
