soo for those of you who are fans of the Practice...i was just making sure you knew that 6 of the orignal cast members have been fired...
-Kelli Williams (Lindsay Dole)
-Lara Flynn Boyle (Helen Gamble)
-Dylan McDermott (Bobby Donnel)
-Lisa Gay Hamilton (Rebecca Washington)
-Chyler Leigh (Claire)
-Marla Sokoloff (Lucy Hatcher)<~~dont think she was fired--pretty sure she was leaving anyway
According to what I read, ABC may not be to blame for the firings on "Practice."
In one article an "inside source" at the network says that David E. Kelley is responsible for the firings, in order to bring costs down because ABC cut the show's budget.
If that's true, I think that's a pretty low move on Kelley's part. After all, he's still getting a paycheck.

yea im almost sure it was David E. Kelley's decision to fire them. he's apparently going for the "ER approach" and thinks that this will help ratings. :rolleyes:

Soon to be known as the last- and worst- season of The Practice.

I was growing tired of the show. It was starting to get repeditive and boring. They should of just ended it this season(with Dylan McDermott leaving). I'll choose Boomtown if they are both on at the same time again next season.

I heard that Sharon Stone will be makings some guest appearances before she becomes a regular. The Practice was going downhill towards the end of the season. I'm glad it's back on Sunday nights!!!!!

"The rebuilding project on "The Practice" continues with Rhona Mitra ("Sweet Home Alabama" ) joining the cast.
The London native, who early in her career played Lara Croft in promotions for the "Tomb Raider" video games, will play a character named Tara Wilson in the coming season of the ABC drama. She's a third-year law student and paralegal who takes a job as the firm's new assistant.
Mitra is essentially replacing Marla Sokoloff, who was one of six regulars to leave the show this spring. James Spader ("The Pentagon Papers" ) and Mitra will be part of cast that includes returning regulars Michael Badalucco, Jessica Capshaw, Steve Harris and Camryn Manheim."
Mitra's credits include "Party of Five," "Gideon's Crossing" and the feature films "Hollow Man" and "The Life of David Gale."
