Clarence Bell is a legal assistant then associate attorney with Crane, Poole & Schmidt who appears in Seasons 3 and 4 of
the Boston Legal series. The part of Clarence is played by Gary Anthony Williams, who, amongst his most notable roles, appeared in the 2002 action/comedy film Undercover Brother with Eddie Griffin, Denise Richards, Chris Kattan, and Billy Dee Williams.
Also known as Clarice, Clevant and "Oprah" In his default persona, Clarence is hopelessly shy and introverted. To deal with this drawback, he role-plays as other people who embody the characteristics he cannot. He originally sued his place of employment for gender discrimination. He is hired by CP&S as Claire Simms's assistant, and after it is discovered he is a law school graduate who has been admitted to the bar, he becomes an associate. For a time, he and Claire are an item. Joining the Litigation Division, he and Jerry Espenson become friends, and he enjoys something of a mentoring relationship with Carl Sack. He disappeared at the end of Season 4 with no explanation.
