Dan Abrams’ New Role

Portfolio’s Jeff Bercovici catches up with Dan Abrams about his cameos in a new fictionalized teleplay of the Valerie Plame-Judith Miller story. Bercovici writes, “Kate Beckinsale playing a glammed-up version of Miller, the New York Times reporter who went to jail for refusing to say who had leaked her the name of a CIA operative.”

Abrams plays himself, a TV talker discussing l’affaire de Plame. In one of his scenes, the special prosecutor (played by Matt Dillon) yells “Turn that guy off!” Dan’s dad, noted First Amendment attorney Floyd Abrams, has a more extensive role in the film.

Nothing but the Truth also stars Alan Alda, Angela Bassett and Noah Wyle (wait, weren’t they all on ER at one time or another?)
