The Firm is one of those movies that’s on TV all the time, and whenever it is I always end up watching. And now NBC is making a show out of it. Above is the guy who’s playing Mitch McDeer. Apparently the show is supposed to be kind of a sequel to the movie. It takes place ten years later, and McDeer and his family have just come out of a witness protection program. I couldn’t find it on youtube, but here’s a link to a clip of it on NBC’s website. The show is premiering on Thursday January 8th. I don’t think it’s gonna make it. Not without Wilford Brimely. The funniest part of the movie that’s not supposed to be funny is when Tom Cruise beats him up with a briefcase. I tried to find a clip of that on youtube, but it’s not out there. Although the entire movie is. Since when can you watch whole movies on youtube? I thought about posting it, but here’s the trailer instead:
