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 womanizing 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 mid 80’s-90’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.

I enjoyed this show, but I have to say if only two of the original cast will be on, I don’t see the point of a “revival” and is it even a “revival”. I like Corbin Bernsen, Blair Underwood not so much – but these two are not enough to make me view the show. Seems to me it will be almost a new/different show (other than their names)

Overall, I really don’t see the point of so many shows being re-created. Most are not going to be as successful as the original. You know what they say “you can’t go home again”. Surely there are enough creative minds to develop new shows; and yet they cancel an excellent show like “All Rise”.

“All Rise” was actually UNcancelled. But you’ll have to get the Oprah channel to see the new episodes live. Hulu will stream the episodes also.

This is great to hear. I loved All Rise. Nice to see it will be back.

He should be reprising his role as Carly’s dad on GH right now, since there seems to be a “Return of the long lost daddies” theme going on at the moment. Between Victor Cassadine claming to be Val the Bastard’s father, that new guy in the hat who is obviously Curtis’s “dead” father, and now even a Jeff Webber mention (he might even show up, but if it’s not Richard Dean Anderson, don’t bother).

So yeah…. Arnie Becker without hair doesn’t make a lot of sense, but John Durant back from the dead?? Why the Hell not?

Corbin Bernsen has certainly kept busy in the years since L.A. LAW. He was terrific on PSYCH and has really done great work on THE RESIDENT. I daresay mama Jeanne would be proud. And how we miss Katherine Chancellor, too.

Soaphound
I loved C.B on La Law, thought he was so handsome, and enjoyed his visits to G.City as Paul’s brother the priest.

I have a funny bent; “The Young and the Restless.” Thought that was where I was. However, who was the woman Corbin was tied to. I loved her; that was chemistry on screen!

What a terrific idea. So many directions and stories with this. Would be fun to see the actors “grown up”, where they ended up, married, divorced, children etc etc.

Wondered what happened to Corbin Bernstein. He will be the anchor of the show. He put it on the map originally. I WILL WATCH THIS ONE LAW SHOW BECAUSE OF THE TWO MAJOR ACTORS.

Susan Lucci Reveals She Was Contacted to Gauge Interest in Becoming ‘The Golden Bachelorette’

All My Children icon and Daytime Emmy Lifetime Achievement honoree, Susan Lucci (ex-Erica Kane), apparently was being considered for the lead in the first-ever season of The Golden Bachelorette.

Making this all the more intriguing is Lucci admitted she really enjoyed The Golden Bachelor’s season and has become a fan and thus a part of ‘Bachelor Nation.’

Although former ‘Golden Bachelor’ contestant Joan Vassos was the ultimate pick by ABC and the producers of The Golden Bachelorette, Lucci told PEOPLE that the show reached out to her people.

Susan shared, “I believe that they contacted my publicist and it wasn’t for me.” She added, “I watched The Golden Bachelor, and I really enjoyed watching The Golden Bachelor. This is a new addiction for me.”

And a few years back. her assistant got Lucci hooked on The Bachelor, as she expressed on the dating series, “I was immediately engaged. I cared. I wanted to know more about these people.”

The outlet shared that they did reach out to ABC and Warner Bros. about potential interest in Susan. However, they did not respond. A source then told the publication that Lucci was not offered a role.

For Susan, finding a second chance at love is an interesting proposition; given that she had the most incredible and enduring 53-year marriage to her late husband and manager, Helmet Huber, who passed away at 84-years-old back in March of 2022.

So, what do you think of Susan being contacted to see if she was interested in becoming ABC’s ‘Golden Bachelorette’ for the senior dating-reality series? Comment below.
