William Shatner won't be the only former Star Trek star practising law on television this fall. Deep Space Nine's shapeshifter Rene Auberjonois (Odo) will be joining the Captain Kirk actor on Boston Legal.
The Rene Auberjonois Internet Link has reported that Auberjonois signed on to perform in Boston Legal late this month. He will play recurring character Paul Lewiston, the head of the law firm upon which the series centers.
Auberjonois will appear in at least three of the first five episodes. Whether and how often he may return later in the season depends upon how the writers develop the storylines for The Practice spinoff.
Shatner was cast in Boston Legal after a successful run playing Denny Crane on The Practice. He earned an Emmy nomination for his portrayal of the character, a senior partner in the law firm that Auberjonois' character will lead. James Spader, also an Emmy nominee for The Practice, will star as an attorney with the firm as well.
