The Firm is one of those movies that’s on TV all the time, and whenever it is I always end up watching.  And now NBC is making a show out of it.  Above is the guy who’s playing Mitch McDeer.  Apparently the show is supposed to be kind of a sequel to the movie.  It takes place ten years later, and McDeer and his family have just come out of a witness protection program.  I couldn’t find it on youtube, but here’s a link to a clip of it on NBC’s website.  The show is premiering on Thursday January 8th.  I don’t think it’s gonna make it.  Not without Wilford Brimely.  The funniest part of the movie that’s not supposed to be funny is when Tom Cruise beats him up with a briefcase.  I tried to find a clip of that on youtube, but it’s not out there.  Although the entire movie is.  Since when can you watch whole movies on youtube?  I thought about posting it, but here’s the trailer instead:

It’s weird to go back and watch the original preview for an old movie you’ve seen a million times.  It’s totally not what I would have expected, and not at all representative of how I remember the movie.
