Erika has alway’s been my all-time favorite on OLTL ! She is the heart & soul of OLTL. Without her it wouldn’t be OLTL plus I think the soap couldn’t go on if she weren’t there.

Erika Slezak is the best! She is a treasure..

On another note – it looks like they fixed the doors on OLTL.

Didn’t they have a tribute to AMC on last year’s show? Why wasn’t there anything for OLTL on this show? They would’ve had plenty of time if they had cut out that horrible singing! And Carrie Fisher was a waste of time too! They messed up the tribute to Monty Hall and they still went overtime!

As usual, Erika is the epitome of grace and class. Her father would be proud (is proud from heaven!). Love her positive outlook and her loyalty to Robin Strasser. My favorite emmy win for Erika will be NEXT YEAR! 😉

That was a terrific interview. She was one of the few presenters who appeared to know what they were doing on the Emmy Award show. She is my favorite on OLTL. I feel better about the future of OLTL and that the labor dispute will be resolved after listening to her interview.

The reason she knows what she is doing is because she has been in the business and loves daytime. I wish that ABC would do the right thing and bring them back home I applaud PP for what they have done but it is still not the same. Erika did look lovely!

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.
