Celeb Dylan McDermott Plays a Lawyer on TV, and in the Courtroom

E! News has the scoop:
Nearly eight months after the duo announced they had separated, actor Dylan McDermott filed for divorce from wife Shiva Rose Friday, citing irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split. According to the petition obtained by E! News, the actual date of separation is listed as March 5, 2007. Interestingly, McDermott, who spent seven years playing lawyer Bobby Donnell on The Practice, is tackling this case “in propria persona.” In other words, he’s acting as his own attorney.
I fully support this decision, and I know how McDermott feels: Like Lindy West, I’ve watched enough Law & Order that I’m almost a lawyer, and would love to try my absorbed skills in a courtroom (so long as I didn’t draw that butthole Judge Lisa Pongracic..)
