Casting continues apace for NBC's legal drama pilot, 'Rex is Not Your Lawyer.'

It's already been announced that David Tennant of 'Doctor Who' fame will be making his American television debut as Rex Alexander, a Chicago lawyer who begins suffering from panic attacks and attempts to compensate by coaching his clients to represent themselves. The role was apparently very difficult to cast, with NBC searching for a leading man for several months until Tennant came in and nailed it.

Now The Hollywood Reporter reports that Abigail Spencer has been cast in the key role of Lindsey Steers, a hotshot up-and-coming lawyer at Rex's firm -- and his fiancee. Madcap complications will most assuredly ensue.Casting continues apace for NBC's legal drama pilot, 'Rex is Not Your Lawyer.'

Abigail Spencer is probably best known for her role as sexy schoolteacher Suzanne Farrell, the latest "other woman" of Jon Hamm's Don Draper on AMC's 'Mad Men.' Spencer's other television credits include 'Castle,' 'Private Practice,' 'Bones' and 'Ghost Whisperer.'
