Exclusive: USA 'Legal' drama recruits 'Spirit' star Gabriel Macht

26 July 2010 11:04 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent - Inside TV news »

Gabriel Macht, semi-famous for his role in the 2008 cult comic book flick The Spirit, has joined the cast of USA Network’s new procedural A Legal Mind, sources confirm to me exclusively.

Macht, who also appeared in NBC’s short-lived psychic thriller The Others, will play Harvey, a brilliant, successful, and charming attorney at a top Manhattan law firm. He goes out on a limb and hires Mike, an unmotivated
but brilliant college student (played by relative newcomer Patrick J. Adams), even though he doesn’t have a law degree.

The Deep End’s Aaron Krosh penned the pilot script »

Miramax bids low due to mixed-bag library?

8 April 2010 5:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

There might be a reason why bids for Miramax are coming in under what Disney would have liked, and it's not just recession-weary cost-consciousness at play.

Rather, the library is a maze of disparate titles and murky rights. Yes, there are 14 prestige titles that competed for best picture Oscars, three of which nabbed the statuette, but there also is a lot of straight-to-video fare, quirky art pics with little remake potential and other films whose ownership is unclear or hopelessly split.

Even the size of the library has been misstated over and over again. Various reports have placed it at 700 movies, but there are actually only 611 (plus 220 hours of TV episodes) and only slightly more than half of those movies got a domestic theatrical release and can be considered salable quality movies that have potential to keep generating significant revenue.

There also are five unreleased movies in the mix: Julie Taymor's adaptation of Shakespeare's "The Tempest"; the Jennifer Aniston romantic comedy "The Switch" (formerly "The Baster") »
