'Law & Order's' Courtney B. Vance Returns to the Courtroom on ABC's 'Revenge'
Here’s just a little bit of Revenge news to make the wait until the next new episode on Feb. 8 hurt a bit less.
Spoiler if you haven't watched Wednesday's episode.
After Victoria dropped her divorce attorney -- who happened to be working with Emily -- on Wednesday’s episode, we now know who’s taking up the case.
He’ll play Ben Barnett, who may not be nice but he’s the best there is. As if Victoria cared about "nice." He takes charge of Victoria’s case, sets up a “war room,” and makes sure everyone connected to the divorcing Grayson knows what role they’re playing in her case.
You can see Vance in theatres right now as the pastor in the Dolly Parton/Queen Latifah movie, Joyful Noise. FlashForward fans will recognize him as Stanford Wedeck while Law & Order fans know him as Assistant District Attorney Ron Carver.
