John Larroquette is returning to the field that netted him four consecutive Emmy awards. The actor, most famous for playing the concupiscent Dan Fielding in the 1980s sitcom Night Court, will be back in the courtroom this fall.
ABC today announced that Larroquette will be joining the cast of its drama-comedy hybrid Boston Legal. The 59-year-old actor will play a senior partner who transfers from the New York office to Beantown.
In recent years, Larroquette appeared in The Practice, Joey, and Arrested Development.
The network also revealed that Christian Clemenson, who plays Jerry Espenson on the show, will be added as a cast regular next season. Also joining the cast is Tara Summers (Dirt, Alfie), who will play a young associate.
Boston Legal is the brainchild of producer extraordinaire David E. Kelley (Ally McBeal, Boston Public, The Practice), and debuted in 2004. For more information on the show, read TV.com's previous coverage.
