Alan Shore is a brilliant lawyer with a strong moral core who nevertheless is not above obtaining ethical outcomes through unethical means.
Illicit computer hacking, blackmail, disguise and bribery are all tools he uses without hesitation.
Alan suffers from night terrors, has a fear of clowns and, in two episodes, suffered from word salad.The series is a spin-off of the Kelley series The Practice, and features Practice actors including Spader, Rhona Mitra, Lake Bell, and Shatner.It is set at the legal firm of Crane, Poole & Schmidt.Spader is obviously brilliant at everything that he does and this role seems to have been tailor-made for him.Unfortunately the rest of the cast has taken some heat because compared to Spader – well they just can’t compare.Megan Boone really hit the ground running when she was cast as Agent Liz Keen in NBC’s instant smash-hit The Blacklist, but nothing could have prepared her for working so closely with James Spader.
