Image Credit: Glenn Harris/PR PhotosGabriel Macht, semi-famous for his role in the 2008 cult comic book flick The Spirit, has joined the cast of USA Network’s new procedural A Legal Mind, sources confirm to me exclusively.

Macht, who also appeared in NBC’s short-lived psychic thriller The Others, will play Harvey, a brilliant, successful, and charming attorney at a top Manhattan law firm. He goes out on a limb and hires Mike, an unmotivated
but brilliant college student (played by relative newcomer Patrick J. Adams), even though he doesn’t have a law degree.

The Deep End‘s Aaron Krosh penned the pilot script and will serve as exec producer alongside Doug Liman, David Bartis, and Gene Klein.
