After his fantastic run as a loathsome villain on Fargo, Billy Bob Thornton returns to the small screen as a lovable anti-hero in Goliath, the legal thriller by The Practice creator David E Kelley.
He stars as Billy McBride, a down-on-his-luck but brilliant attorney. At first sight, he’s a reprehensibly flawed lout who drinks/smokes/curses incessantly. He’s also an absentee father, and is not above bribing witnesses or sleeping with his clients. But his heart is in the right place. Mostly.
Drama ensues when he takes on a David vs Goliath case against a mega corporation, which he incidentally started. The just-as-fantastic William Hurt plays McBride’s former law partner-turned-nemesis, who creepily uses a clicker to express his emotions.
Filled with edge-of-your-seat plot twists, clever courtroom strategies and personal drama, this binge-worthy series is Kelly at his vintage best.
