Get Me Central Casting!

According to media lawyer Floyd Abrams, the film in which he plays a judge, Alan Alda's Nothing But the Truth is not the Judith Miller case, although the character he plays sends a journalist to jail for refusing to reveal her sources. Others in the movie include Kate Beckinsale and Matt Dillon. Here's a Variety article from July discussing the Yari Film Group project. BTW, is Mr. Abrams following in Joseph Welch's footsteps? (Mr. Welch, you'll recall, played a jurist in Otto Preminger's Anatomy of a Murder). Stay tuned....Warner Brothers is also coming out with a movie inspired by the Valerie Plame case.
