Q: Were you a fan of “The Firm” prior to your being cast in the series version?

A: In the sense that I knew the movie fairly well. I hadn’t seen it in a little while, but I knew John Grisham’s work as a whole. I had never actually read this one, but I did understand that there is this sort of emotional pull that it has on many, many people ... whether it’s the movie or the book or both. And I get why Grisham has been asked consistently, “What happened to this man? What happened to these people?” Pulling material from both places frees up this series in a way.

Q: What’s the biggest challenge of revisiting the premise in series form?

A: The challenge is to honor Tom Cruise, to honor what he did with the character (in the 1993 movie version), but also to look at the Grisham source material that had a very different angle in a way. There are things I wanted to try to reference and homage, but at the same time, absolutely make sure that we were not attempting to step into the footsteps of someone else.

Q: You’ve also cited law-thriller author Scott Turow’s (“Presumed Innocent”) books as some of your main resources in preparing to play an attorney. Why is that?

A: They primarily deal with what drives someone the same way athletes are driven, deeply competitively, to win at all costs. There’s a similarity in certain kinds of lawyers, and I think Mitch McDeere (Lucas’ “Firm” character) is one of those.
