And you thought Ted Danson signing on to CSI was a big deal. NBC announced late Tuesday that Juliette Lewis had been added to the cast of the upcoming sequel series to The Firm.

Lewis—last seen in Due Date—will play Mitch McDeere's secretary Tammy, a sexy troublemaker who has an on-again/off-again relationship with Mitch's brother; the role was originally played by Holly Hunter in The Firm. As you'll recall, Josh Lucas (a/k/a Matthew McConaughey Jr.) is set to tackle the role of Mitch McDeere, who is released from Witness Protection after ten years. Guess Tammy didn't age that much!

Look for The Firm on NBC next year.
