Corbin Bernsen family statement: “A beacon of light guiding us all toward humanity, humility, and equality has been extinguished but a shimmer of it will always remain as reminder from her to us all of a kinder world that is here for us each to embrace feed and make flourish in a way her truest work has just begun for us to honor her vision and make that her legacy. One of the last great Broads in our business – Jeanne Cooper (84 years old) – Mom – is now stirring up trouble in great beyond.”

I refute Soap Opera Digest’s immediate (and insensitive) reference to ‘Jeanne Cooper as ex-Katherine’; there will only ever be one Katherine, never to be replaced, only remembered, and forever missed. RIP Jeanne.

I am so sorry to hear of Mrs. C’s passing!! Have loved her from the very beginning! Such a classy “broad”!! I remember seeing her in an old Twilight Zone! Wasn’t watching the screen but I heard the voice and said that’s Mrs. C! I hope that Corbin will play Kaye’s theme song at her funeral….” I’m gonna live ’til I die”! I remember her singing this many times over the years. It was her mantra! And she did it her way!! She will be greatly missed by all. Jeanne and her family will be in my prayers and may… Read more »

I was lucky enough to win an autographed copy of Jeanne’s book (from this website… thank you, Michael and Jeanne) and tonight that autograph and book is so powerful now as my family and I – who are 40 year viewers of the show – are absolutely heartbroken at such a tremendous loss. What an incredible human being that Jeanne was! Each and every one of her scenes was so heartfelt…. so visceral. It was as if we were in the same room with her; there was a connection. Her gift of communicating that special something with others was a… Read more »

I could not be more upset at the passing of this legend, this incredible woman. I grew up watching Jeanne bring the sass and heart of Katherine to my screen. She was beautiful inside and out and there will never be another one like her. I will be interested to see what Y&R does now, concerning Katherine. I would assume they will have her pass away, but they better give her the sendoff this character and Jeanne deserves. If ever, now is the time for Jill Farren Phelps and Josh Griffith to pull their heads out of their asses and… Read more »

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.
