Jimmy Smits Explains Why He’s Returning to the Courtroom in ‘Bluff City Law’ — See the Exclusive Cast Photos!

For actor Jimmy Smits, there’s something familiar yet different about the notion of returning to television this fall as a lawyer on NBC’s Bluff City Law. Familiar, because he had been one of the main stars of the same network’s L.A. Law between 1986 and 1992, but different because times have certainly changed and this show is taking a different approach to the subject matter than that series did.

“There was definitely a lot of brushing up,” Jimmy says of the idea of playing a lawyer again. “That was 20-something years ago. But you try to take the best from the experiences that you had and know that this particular guy that I’m doing now is a lot different and doesn’t have the kind of bounce in the same way.”

Bluff City Law premieres on NBC September 23.
