JOHN LARROQUETTE JOINS THE CAST OF ABC'S "BOSTON LEGAL"

Christian Clemenson and Tara Summers Also Join the Award-Winning Series

Emmy Award-winning actor John Larroquette ("Night Court") is set to join the cast of "Boston Legal" next season as a senior partner from the New York offices of Crane Poole & Schmidt who transfers to the Boston office.

In addition, Emmy Award winner Christian Clemenson, who portrays Jerry "Hands" Espenson a fellow lawyer and friend of Alan Shore's (James Spader) who suffers from Aspergers syndrome -- joins the series as a cast regular, and Tara Summers ("Dirt") also comes on board as a young associate of the Boston offices.

Production on fourth season episodes begins on June 27.


And yes, a character I was once getting tired of (Jerry Espenson) IS returning full time to the show. I am starting to like him now, so I hope they don't screw him up. I hope they're able to keep him from hogging Alan. No wonder Denny was getting jealous. Perhaps they're going to pair up Jerry and Clarence together a lot. That seems to be what the writers were aiming for at the end of last season.

And as for Laroquette? OMG, wouldn't it be GREAT if he reprised his type of role that he had in Night Court? Adapt the character for Boston Legal, but still be essentially the same. Give Alan a look at someone *really* crazy!

Thanks for the news. I'm less than thrilled, though. Three new characters in addition to Jerry & Clarence? Meh...

It's two new characters- John L's and Tara S's.

Espensen has already been around during the last season (a lot) and was a regular in everything but name.

I am still hoping like crazy that Bethany (the dwarf lawyer and Denny's on and off girlfriend) comes back.

Yeah, I love Jerry, and he's been around enough now that I wouldn't mind if he was added to the cast as a regular.

I'm not really a fan of John L., though, and I really don't see why they don't think Spader and Shatner and Candace Bergen are enough? With everyone else taking on smaller roles and sometimes larger ones? Why do they have to keep shaking up the entire show and changing everything around? *g*

I don't know... I have never even opened my season 2 DVDs. I watched it as it aired, but I don't know if I will ever watch the DVDs.*g* I haven't even finished watching season 3.

I like Clarence and I like Bethany, too.
