Order in the law office! Tony nominee Rory O’Malley will lay down the law (sort of) as an irreverent legal office manager in the new FX comedy Braddock & Jackson, Deadline.com reports. The Book of Mormon favorite will star opposite fellow Broadway vet Kelsey Grammer and Martin Lawrence in the 10-episode series.
In Braddock & Jackson, Grammer and Lawrence play two Chicago lawyers who come from very different backgrounds. The duo teams up as partners after meeting unexpectedly on a terrible day in court. No additional casting or air dates have been announced.
O’Malley garnered a Tony nomination for his turn as Elder McKinley in The Book of Mormon. He made his Broadway debut in The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee. His off-Broadway credits include Little Miss Sunshine and Nobody Loves You. O’Malley’s additional film and TV appearances include Dreamgirls, 1600 Penn, Nurse Jackie and Dreamgirls.
