New ‘This Is Us’ Cast Member Blake Stadnik Performed Song ‘Memorized’ Goes Up The Charts After Season Premiere

Last week, This Is Us gave us a dazzling season four opener, which introduced the audience to several new characters … and in true ‘This Is Us’ fashion, viewers did not know how these new additions to the cast would tie-in to the core members of the Pearson family; whether it be in a flashback, in current times, or their flash-forwards.

So with that, fans of the NBC drama were introduced to a character who was a blind young man – who turns out to be a musician – who winds up being Kate and Toby’s blind son all-grown up. That part is being played by Blake Stadnik.

At the end of premiere adult Jack (Stadnik) performs the song “Memorized” in front of thousands at the Greek Theater in Los Angeles that is the emotional highpoint of the episode.  Fast-forward and the song began charting.. and last week entered the Top 20 in the U.S. iTunes store.  As of Monday September 30th, it was at #42 on the iTunes Hot 100 songs chart.

“Memorized was co-written by Siddhartha Khosla and Taylor Goldsmith,  and sung by Stadnik.

This Is Us series creator, Dan Fogelman said of the choice of Stadnik for the role of adult Jack: “He’s a trained actor and done a lot of musical theater and can sing, which was another massive quality that made the search impossible.  We wanted to find an actor who could be a leading man, and very handsome and very funny, with his bare ass on national television — but also be able to go stand in the Greek in front of a live audience and actually perform and sing a song. And so there were a lot of boxes to check.”

After the episode aired, Stadnik took to his Instagram to share his first public photo with his on-screen parents: Chris Sullivan and Chrissy Metz stating: “A little family photo.  Endless thanks to these two wonderful people and everyone at @nbcthisisus who welcomed me to the family! #thisisus #jackdamon”

Now below listen to “Memorized” one more time … and let us know if you are loving Blake as much as we are as a key addition to This Is Us via the comment section below.

Absolutely brilliant. Throughout the episode I tried to finger out how each of the new people fit with the Pearsons. I was overjoyed when I learned this is preemie baby Jack all grown up. I worried about that baby all summer. Just because he made it home from the NICU didn’t mean he was out of the woods. I’m so happy he survives into the future.

I am very impressed with Blake Stadnik and wish him great success with this part and his career.

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.
