'Practice' actress may court death row drama

LisaGay Hamilton is in talks to join the cast of Clint Eastwood’s “True Crime,” the Warner Bros. drama about a journalist’s attempt to free a death-row convict as his scheduled execution ticks closer.

Hamilton, who would play the wife of the jailed man, is a series regular on David Kelley’s legal drama “The Practice.” She’ll be seen in Touchstone’s upcoming Jonathan Demme drama “Beloved,” based on the novel by Toni Morrison. She won an Obie award for her role in the Athol Fugard play “Valley Song.” Other film credits include the indies “Drunks” and “Palookaville.”

Hamilton is repped by Scott Melrose of Paradigm, and by her managers Stacy Boniello of InHouse Entertainment and Gotham-based Hart/Sharp Entertainment.

In addition to directing, Eastwood will produce “Crime” with Richard Zanuck and Lili Fini Zanuck. Pic’s based on Andrew Klavan’s novel about the 26 hours preceding a condemned man’s execution. A newspaperman, played by Eastwood, tries to prove the prisoner’s innocence in light of newly-discovered evidence. Stephen Schiff scripted.
