Calista Flockhart’s goofy portrayal gave this lawyer show a little more life than others. The show had ridiculous moments in it, but she always committed fully. She even won a Golden Globe for this role. She is currently appearing in the series Supergirl.

Jane Krakowski is a treasure and you could not convince me otherwise. She was the other actor to appear in every episode alone with Calista and Greg, as Elaine Vassal. She went on to appear as Jenna Maroney in the incredibly successful 30 Rock, and as Jacqueline White in Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. She also has done quite a bit of Broadway!

The biggest thing I remember about John Cage was how he always dances to Barry White songs. It’s how he gets his confidence as a lawyer. Pretty solid technique if you ask me. Peter MacNicol most recently appeared on Veep.

Lucy Liu is a mega-super-star, and her character on Ally McBeal was pretty hilarious. She would often have the Wicked Witch of The West’s music playing when she walked around and it suited her well. Lucy Liu is currently playing Dr. Joan Watson in the show Elementary.
