    Some of these have actors I like

    Bill Pullman (Independence Day, Torchwood) stars as Rusty Sabich, a judge charged with the murder of his wife, a situation that comes 20 years after he was cleared in the death of his mistress. During this latest trial, a secret affair from Rusty’s recent past threatens to hamper his defense and fracture his relationship with his son. Oscar® winner Marcia Gay Harden (Pollack, Damages) plays Rusty’s wife, while Alfred Molina (Spider-Man 2, Law & Order: LA) is his friend and defense attorney. Tahmoh Penikett (Battlestar Galactica, Dollhouse) is hot-headed prosecutor Jim Brand. Emmy® winner Richard Schiff (The West Wing, The Lost World: Jurassic Park), Callard Harris (Glory Daze, Intermedio) and Mariana Klaveno (True Blood, While the Children Sleep) also star. Scott Turow’s Innocent is a sequel to Turow’s bestseller Presumed Innocent. The movie is written and directed by Mike Robe (TNT’s HawthoRNe, Nightmares & Dreamscapes: From the Stories of Stephen King), with Robe and Frank von Zerneck (We Were the Mulvaneys, Miracle on Ice) serving as executive producers.

    MY SAY It all adds up to one solid nail-biter, with a profusion of clever clues that seems to cast suspicion on everyone. There are actually two crimes to be solved, and both kept me guessing till the end. Kudos to scripter-director Mike Robe (Turow’s “Reversible Errors” and “The Burden of Proof”).

    BOTTOM LINE Great to see masterful mystery-making again.

    GRADE A-

    None of which, you will be happy to know, is a problem in “Scott Turow’s
    Innocent,” which kicks off the series. A deliciously hard-to-read Bill Pullman
    plays Rusty Sabich, a state judge who may have killed his wife, Barbara (Marcia Gay
    Harden
    ), to be with his young intern/mistress.   

    No one makes bitter look as fabulous as Harden, and Schiff is perfectly cast as
    the older but wiser Molto,   

    And it’s Pullman’s performance that makes the story so compelling. Having put
    his still boyish charm to psychopathic use on the recent “Torchwood: Miracle
    Day,” he makes Rusty difficult to categorize, all half-closed eyes and
    deceptively passive shoulders, a man who could either truly be weighed down with
    sorrow and tragic coincidence or one who, smooth to the point of oiliness, is
    the ruthless controlling force of the events as they unfold.

    Mr. Pullman is not Harrison Ford, obviously, but he is a gifted character actor persuasive as a guilt-ridden husband who maintains that he is innocent of murder. Mr. Molina is a lively foil as his flamboyant lawyer, and Mr. Schiff is strong, bringing a dose of rueful self-awareness to the role of put-upon prosecutor. And Ms. Harden makes the most of her thankless role as a mentally unstable wife, at one point tearing apart a judge’s robe like a latter-day version of Mr. Rochester’s mad wife, Bertha.
