"Boston Legal" has completed their annual cast changes. No surprises about those leaving- Mark Valley, Julie Bowen, Rene Auberjonois, and Constance Zimmer (no link- read it on boston-legal.org, the best BL site I've seen out there). Valley has been under-utilized through the entire run (was he even in court once this year?), and at least one TV Guide reader agrees with me (his lack of screen time got a "jeer" this week). I'm assuming he and Bowen's characters will go live happily ever after now. Rene has only been around for reaction shots, and I liked Zimmer as she was not your stereotypical BL gal, which was nice for a change.

But the additions, according to zap2it.com- Christian Clemenson is promoted to cast member and Tara Summers (don't remember seeing her in anything- anyone have opinions on her?) has been added. The big one though- John Larroquette joins the cast as a senior partner from the New York branch. I really like him, and it's ironic that his episode of "House" just ran yesterday. As excited as I am for seeing him, a little part of me is still upset about the continuity issues with him playing a different character on "The Practice" (Joey Heric, also a good character whom it would've bee interesting had he renewed that part on BL), and this one bugs me more because he was on for a story arc, not just one episode. I know people will keep coming on BL as different characters than The Practice, but I can't seem to help being bugged just an iota by it.

Very disappointed to see Mark Valley and Constance Zimmer leave out of the foursome. I thought at times, he was one of the funniest ones on the show, and I had really grown to like his character. I remember Zimmer from the end of Entourage last year, and although didn't like her at first neither, she grew on me quickly.

So 6 main characters now, I won't be surprised if this isn't the last set of cast changes. Although I wish Poole (Larry Miller) could make more cameos. As long as they keep it on air, that's all I care about.

Since he'll obviously be playing a lawyer, why not just make him Dan Fielding and cement Boston Legal as the greatest television program of all time?

Isnt Boston Legal a spinoff of sorts from THE PRACTICE?

Didnt John Laroquette play a homicidal maniac who got away with murder a few times on that show?

Yeah, I mentioned that in my post-lots of guests on BL have played other characters on The Practice.

In fairness, nobody does a shocked/outraged/befuddled reaction shot like Rene Auberjonois. And he did have that classic DS9 reunion scene with Armin Shimerman.

I am very excited about the arrival of John Laroquette. I've enjoyed just about everything he has done. I think it would be neat if played Dan Fielding once again.



Yeah, it should, but we don't live in Shouldland! Ah, Shouldland, where clean-cut kids cruise Shouldland Boulevard, and the Shouldland High football team gets their optimistic asses kicked by their crosstown rival, Reality Check Tech.
