So many of us have missed John-Paul Lavoisier, who was extremely popular in the role of Rex Balsom on One Life to Live!  Now comes word that Lavoisier is the next soap all-star to garner a role in Crystal Chappell’s upcoming new web series, Beacon Hill!

John-Paul will play Eric Preston who is Claire’s son (Crystal Chappell) and Sara’s brother.  Eric’s easy smile hides a steely resolve and sharp ambition. His grandfather’s stroke may be just the excuse he’s been waiting for to make his move.

According to the series website, the premise of the story is: “When Senior Massachusetts Senator William Preston suffers a stroke, his rebellious granddaughter Sara is called home to Boston. Once there, Sara finds that her ailing grandfather has a new wife barely older than herself, that her mother Claire is still hiding in her room with her favorite bottle, and that her brother Eric is playing nursemaid in between board meetings.  Sara also discovers that her ex, State Representative Katherine Wesley, is being mentioned as a possible Senatorial candidate in a cat-and-mouse game controlled by Sara’s grandfather.  When former lovers Sara Preston and Katherine Wesley reconnect after six years apart, it seems unlikely that they’ll ever be able to put their past behind them. And with the political turmoil, family intrusions and the press interfering, it may be downright impossible.”

John-Paul joins the likes of already announced stars: Ricky Paull Goldin, Louise Sorel, Sarah Brown, and Melissa Archer!  Yes, Lavoisier will appear on the series with his One Life to Live on-screen sister!

So what do you think about the casting of John-Paul as Crystal’s son in the series? Excited to see him on screen again after missing him on One Life? Weigh-in!

With this cast and proposed story relationships, sounds like “Beacon Hill” will be successful and a hoot to follow! When will it begin to air?

.
Beacon Hill was considered to be an Americanized version of the British TV series, Upstairs Downstairs.
In 1975 it was a short lived soap on CBS ..
Beacon Hill debuted to monster ratings, the show dwindled and was cancelled after only 6 episodes, making it one of the most monumental flops in TV drama.
But most of the actors went on to bigger things anyway..

It sounds like a really good soap..
Being it will be on the internet I’m sure this time around I’m going to be fan !!!!

Not true. Heard they wanted JP – but he said no.

Very good question. I’m also interested in the Tainted Dreams online soap as well, that has an interesting cast, with several former OLTL actors. Hope to see more of them return to the online version on Hulu.

I hope he and (Farah Fath) stay away from OLTL. Rex and Gigi practically ate the show the last few years and I for one don’t miss their epic, death-defying, time traveling tru wuv forever.

Good for him! They’re getting together quite a good cast and the storyline sounds intriguing.

I don’t know – or really care – what sort of “range” JPL has an actor. What he definitely DOES have is a charm and likability that make watching him a treat.

And now that he’s not harnessed to that horrid Farah Fath, things can only be looking up for him.

was interested in watching this show, but now that I know Minshew is playing a gay character, not so much. Guess I won’t be watching. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t have a problem with gays, I have relatives that are gay, but I just don’t see Minshew playing that type of role. Would rather see her back on AMC with Thorsten Kaye and playing Kendall.

You don’t see Alicia Minshew playing “a reporter in New York [who] reluctantly returns home”? You don’t think she has that kind of range? She was one of my faves on AMC and I can definitely see her playing a reporter. But that’s just me. Do you hate reporters?

It’s a pleasure to see my son, John-Paul, even if only on an online show.

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.
