Meghan Markle books lead role on 'Legal Mind'
Gina Torres cast in second position on USA's law drama pilot
Meghan Markle has booked a lead role on USA Network's pilot "A Legal Mind."
She'll star alongside the male-lead duo of Patrick Adams and Gabriel Macht.
Adams plays Mike Ross, a brilliant yet slacking college student impersonating a high-powered Manhattan corporate attorney. Macht plays the firm's recruiter who brings him on board. Markle plays Rachel Lane, an attractive paralegal with an encyclopedic knowledge of the law who's assigned to Mike and becomes his valuable after-hours research ally.
The Gersh-repped Markle appeared on Fox's "Fringe" and has a part in New Line's "Horrible Bosses." She was recently seen in "Get Him to the Greek."
Additionally, Gina Torres ("24") was cast in second position to her commitment on ABC Family's pilot "Huge" as Katherine Pearson, a senior partner at the law firm.
Markle's hire represents the final lead role filled on the project, written by Aaron Korsh ("The Deep End").
