In a release sent to us by Global TV earlier today - we can confirm the name of the character Shaun Majumder will play on the much antipated one hour TV drama THE FIRM is Andrew Palmer . 

From a plot stand point we now know - "The series continues the story of attorney Mitch McDeere who, as a young associate, brought down the prestigious Memphis law firm of Bendini, Lambert & Locke, which operated as a front for the Chicago mob.  After a difficult decade, McDeere and his family now emerge from isolation to reclaim their lives and their future -- only to find that past dangers are still lurking and new threats are everywhere."

More to come - we'll keep you posted...please read original post below for more details. SABS

  1. This is not meant to offend, but my husband and I have a very hard time taking Sean seriously -- all we can see him as is his AWESOME character on This Hour Has Twenty Two Minutes...hysterically funny! But I can understand him wanting to break away from that and take a role on that is the total opposite. It's just hard to believe him as a "bad guy".
