Tommy Lee Jones Does Lincoln
Tommy Lee Jones is in negotiations to direct and co-star in The Lincoln Lawyer which, even though Abraham was indeed a lawyer, has absolutely nothing to do with our 16th president. Instead the filmís name refers to the car which was named after our bearded Civil War leader. Itís probably for the best, Tommy Lee looks awful in a beard.
THR says the film focuses on a Los Angeles lawyer named Mike Haller who operates out of the back of his car, a Lincoln. His career becomes more high-profile when heís tasked with defending a Beverly Hills playboy accused of murder. Haller is already cast and itís Matthew McConaughey in the role. I know, I see him as more of the Beverly Hills playboy type too. Itís unclear where that leaves Jones since, heís definitely not the Beverly Hills playboy type. Iím sure heíll find something to do.
