"Human Target" star Mark Valley has joined the NBC series as a regular, playing a lawyer who joins Harry's ( Kathy Bates) on-the-rise practice, EW reports. Valley is reuniting with creator David E. Kelley, for whom he worked on "Boston Legal" for three seasons.

The show has also added Jean Smart, late of "Hawaii Five-0," in a sizable recurring part. They join fellow newcomers Karen Olivo, who will play another of Harry's new associates, and "Law & Order: LA" star Alfred Molina, who like Smart will recur. Christopher McDonald has also been bumped up to a series regular, while Aml Ameen and Brittany Snow have left.

Smart will play the prosecutor in a murder trial, with Molina as the defendant. Both are set to appear in multiple episodes.

"Harry's Law" moves to 9 p.m. ET Wednesdays in the fall; it's scheduled to premiere Sept. 21.
