Michael Ausiello reports exclusively that heads are rolling over at Boston Legal
. Julie Bowen
, Mark Valley
, Rene Auberjonois
and Constance Zimmer
have all been let go from the show, sources say. A show insider confirms that "their contract options were not picked up."
To fill the void, Night Court's John Larroquette
is joining the show as a series regular next season, but he won't be reprising his Emmy-winning role from David E. Kelley's The Practice
. Instead, he will be playing an attorney from the New York offices of CP&S. Also Dirt's
Tara Summers will be coming on board as a young associate. Finally, current cast-member Christian Clemenson (Jerry) has been upped to a series regular.
