Actress Neve Campbell joins the cast of The Lincoln Lawyer, the new Netflix series based on the novel by Michael Connelly.
Campbell, known for starring in the Scream movie franchise in the 90s, returns to TV screens in the new Netflix project as Deputy Attorney General Maggie McPherson, ex-wife of the protagonist Mickey Haller, played by Manuel Garcia- Rulfo.
The series was previously being negotiated by the CBS channel, which also approached the actress cast to star in the project. In the past month, however, Netflix has taken the lead in production to integrate it into its catalog.
Garcia-Rulfo, on the other hand, had already been announced as the character Mickey Haller, at the same time that the series was linked to the streaming service. The actor already has a Netflix production on his resume: the 2019 movie, Squad 6, directed by Michael Bay.
