I agree Celia. Tony Danza and Judith Light were an unbeatable combination. And Katherine Helmond along for the ride was priceless!!!

Hi, Deborah,
Thank you for replying. And, I am glad you are in a better place now. We all have our crosses to bear. Some heavier than others. But , God, or whatever force we perceive as God, pulls us through without fail. All we need to do is find inner peace, and a supportive ‘home’ base….family and friends, and, also, in my case, the Monseigneur of my Church.
We are better humans for that. Stay well, Deborah.

That’s so easy her OLTL moment on the stand that is what soap operas were made of no one comes close to that Emmy moment! Kudos! Everybody have a safe Labor Day weekend off to Houston!

Judith Light is an iconic, amazing actress. Her work on OLTL as Karen Wolek is the “gold standard” of soap acting. The courtroom scenes, during which she admits that she is a prostitute, were nothing short of remarkable. A complete left turn to comedy in “Who’s the Boss” proved to be a refreshing change of pace and gave Ms. Light an even wider audience. I also enjoyed her on my favorite nighttime show, “Law & Order: SVU.” I miss her on that one… Maybe someone can enlighten me on her more recent work, with which I am not as familiar.… Read more »

James…Brother…I have been such a big fan of Judith Light and her PHENOMENAL ACTING ever since her OLTL days. I especially enjoyed Judith’s role as that acid-tongued, blunt and hoot-and-a-half (lol) Judith Ryland on that Dallas reboot. Y-e-p.

Later, Brother.

Thanks for sharing, Brother. Sorry I missed the Dallas reboot. I’ll have to check it out!

Nearly a week after this thread was posted, I am a bit disappointed in the lack of enthusiasm for this thread. However, I realize that Judith Light’s work on OLTL predates the overwhelming majority of today’s soap fans. No doubt, many fans were not even born when Light was so mesmerizing on OLTL. Light started a trend for OLTL: winning the Daytime Emmy for Best Actress (1980, 1981), to be followed by Robin Strasser (1982), Erika Slezak (1984, 1986, 1992, 1995, 1996, 2005), Hillary B. Smith (1994), and Susan Haskell (2009). Fans may quibble about a winner’s worthiness of winning… Read more »

I’m choosing/naming just one…The 1993 Made For TV Movie “Men Don’t Tell” in which Judith played a wife who physically abused her husband.

Loved her role on Dallas, the character could have easily been a cartoon in the hands of a lesser actress, she made the show a must watch for me.

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.

And that’s a great question! What do you think will happen when Chelsea returns on-screen?
