Marisa Tomei to join Matthew McConaughey in The Lincoln Lawyer
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
Matthew McConaughey has his fair share of haters out there, but there are two movies that people look to when trying to show that he’s actually a talented actor; A TIME TO KILL and AMISTAD. So it’s no surprise that after several lame romantic comedies and unfulfilling action movies, he’s returning to the legal drama in THE LINCOLN LAWYER. In it, he’ll be joined by the very lovely Marisa Tomei. The film is about a small-time attorney (McConaughey) that is representing a wealthy client that has some strange connections to previous cases. Tomei will star as McConaughey’s ex-wife and prosecuting attorney.
The film sound interesting, although maybe it’s a little too familiar. I can’t imagine McConaughey not playing this character the same way he did in A TIME TO KILL. But I’m always down for a good legal drama.
