Actor Chris O’Donnell, star of Batman Forever an Batman & Robin, has been signed on for three episodes of The Practice by its producer, fellow Bostonian David Kelley. It’s hoped that O’Donnell will help resuscitate the ABC legal drama now missing its two leading players, Lara Flynn Boyle and Dylan McDermott, whom Kelley fired citing expenses.

This will be O’Donnell’s first major television commitment. He plays Brad Stanfirld, a man who stands accused of murdering his pregnant wife. Ugh!

Meanwhile O’Donnell’s wife, Caroline, gave birth ti the couple’s third child, Charles McHugh O’Donnell, who weighed in at 7 pounds, 7 ounces, on July 11 in Los Angeles. ♦
