Kim Zimmer, I love you and I miss you and GL and ATWT so much. It was like 2 deaths, as I remember first watching both soaps with my grandmother. I was so disappointed when you turned down the role of Katherine’s faux daughter and I was equally disappointed with the short-lived air-time Maura West was given. That said, I did and do enjoy Marcy Rylan and Jeff Branson on Y&R. I would much rather see former CBS soap stars in new or recast roles on Y&R instead of vets from other networks, but I understand other network fans probably… Read more »

Do you think there is anyway Oprah would consider NOW putting OLTL and AMC on her network? It would give her the viewership she wants!!!!!

MAB drives me NUTS!!! As Miss Zimmer said, there are a lot of ex-soap stars looking for work. She also has actors on her own show with nothing to do!!! What will it take to make this woman see the mess she is making of this once great soap?

Lew, their is nothing ! Her last name is Bell she to my knowledge has no writing experience she has arrogance and I am never wrong attitude! You know why she hired Catherine Bach she knew her from children’s daycare, oh wow what a resume. I hate talking this woman down as much as I do but with soaps dying and we are down to 4 people. CBS, Sony somebody step up and STOP THE MADNESS!!! By the way Ms. Zimmer would have knocked the role Catherine Bach got out of the ballpark, her & Eric Braeden dynamite.

MAB is clueless. I don’t mean to be mean, but she and her minions are destroying this treasure of a show. When will the madness stop? When will the decision makers save Y&R before it becomes too late?

Like Brett Butler, but Y&R has a big, bloated cast. Also agree with Kim Zimmer (The Kim Zimmer!?) there are ALOT of talented, missed, loved, soap actors who could use the gig. As a viewer, i would prefer to see these soap stars, even for a brief stint.

Really? Like this is supposed to be worthy of news? Give me one of my beloved soap stars without a sopa home and THAT will be news worth crowing about; not an I-haven’t-seen-her-for so-long-I-almost-forgot-who-she-is-“star”. Yawn.

Corbin Bernsen to Reprise His Role of Arnie Becker in ‘LA Law’ Revival Pilot

Corbin Bernsen (Father Todd, The Young and the Restless) and the son of Y&R’s late great Jeanne Cooper (Katherine Chancellor) has signed on to reprise his signature primetime television role of womanizer lawyer Arnie Becker in the upcoming LA Law revival pilot.

This makes Corbin the co-lead of the series alongside Blair Underwood (Ex-OLTL) who previously signed on to the pilot to reprise his role of Jonathan Rollins.  ABC has greenlit the pilot.

According to Deadline, it is believed that Bernsen and Underwood will be the only original members of the 80’s legal drama on NBC in the pilot, but more may guest-star if the show gets picked up for a full-season order.

In the premise of the reboot, the law firm of McKenzie Brackman, now named Becker Rollins, reinvents itself as a litigation firm specializing in only the most high profile, boundary pushing and incendiary cases.  The show will feature familiar characters working alongside new ones on the most hot button issues of the day.  As for Bernsen’s Becker, now in his 60’s, look for him to struggle with a rapidly shifting sexual and political landscape.

The original LA Law ran for eight seasons from September 15, 1986 to May 19, 1994 on NBC.

So, what do you think of Corbin taking on the role of Arnie Becket in a revival of LA Law? Would you be intrigued to check out the show if it makes it to series? Comment below.

Justin Hartley Voices ‘Superman’ In New Animated Feature ‘Injustice’

Here’s yet another role that Justin Hartley was born to play, but this time he’s doing it with a twist! Hartley is playing the man of steel, Superman, in the new animated feature from DC Comic and Warner Brothers titled Injustice.

However, being that it’s animated, fans can hear Justin’s voice as Superman.  This is the third superhero role in Hartley’s career having played Green Arrow on Smallville and then Aquaman for a proposed series from the same team.  Of course, soap fans love him for his roles on Passions (Fox Crane) and The Young and the Restless (Adam Newman), while primetime audiences continue to love his portrayal of Kevin Pearson on This Is Us.

In this new animated featured inspired by the popular video game, things go very wrong for Superman, when The Joker tricks him into murdering Lois Lane!

Justin spoke to TV Insider about taking on the legendary super hero via voice-over and shared what was the appeal for him to do. Hartley expressed: “I loved the arc of the character. I love the way it started and how you get behind him. You go, ‘This is very cool to see him at home and nesting and having a good time.’ And then all hell breaks out and I loved the idea that they wrote this guy flawed and this idea of Superman not having all of the answers… and sometimes, the answers that he has are outrageous. That’s a fun character to play.”

Injustice is out tomorrow on October 19th on 4K, Ultra-HD Blu-ray Combo Pack,Blu-ray, and Digital.  Check out a trailer for it below.

So what do you think of Justin as Superman? Comment below.
