Producer David E Kelley is starting to rebuild the cast of his troubled show THE PRACTICE - by replacing Dylan McDermott with James Spader.

In addition, Sweet Home Alabama actress Rhona Mitra has been approached about joining the series, though a deal has yet to be settled.

Shockwaves were sent around Hollywood last month (MAY03) when Kelley axed most of the show's stars, including series lead McDermott and Lara Flynn Boyle, reportedly to cut costs.

Kelley says of his new castmember, "It is a writers dream to work with an actor as multi-faceted and layered as James Spader is. I've been a fan of his for some time and have been waiting for the perfect opportunity for us to work together."
