“I can’t remember the last time I saw Becky Lincoln Lawyer, But we’ve always seen each other every two years, “Gorham tells Deadline.” I remember feeling really nervous when we were discussing the Netflix series because I thought Becky and I had worked together before. I was worried because they wouldn’t give me the part [my character] Trevor Elliott differs from Henry Grubstick. He was the first person I told after it was all over and it was really great to work with him again. She is a complete lover. “
Newton was not the only person on the Netflix series cast that Gorham had worked before. In 1997, he appeared in four episodes Team of five Along with Nave Campbell, who played Maggie McPherson Lincoln Lawyer.
“When I did Team of five, Nev and I shared some scenes but we didn’t really communicate so we didn’t spend much time together then. I’ve worked mostly with Jennifer Love Hewitt and Scott Wolf, “he shared. “At this point, we get to know each other better. She was very beautiful and really sweet. ”

“When I first got the script, I didn’t know he did it,” Gorham revealed. “After doing enough television, we work really hard in the first and second scenes to make him feel innocent and faithful. So I was pretty sure he did it, but I didn’t know exactly from the bat. In fact, after I cast it, it was one of the first questions [executive producer] Ted [Humprey] Ask me a question. I told him he probably killed his wife, but it’s really important to plan so that the audience doesn’t know. The way I did it was to decide that despite the violence and all the other things, Trevor loves his wife. And Mickey was right about her being addicted to success, money, and attention as a result of Lara’s success. It’s kind of sad because drugs have won and it’s not really a happy ending for anyone. “
He added, “The scene at the cocktail party where Trevor finally took off his mask and Mickey had such an ass. It’s really fun to be a bad person. “
