Oh, Timmm, that woman’s behavior is so embarrassing. It’s like when that teenage girl recently grabbed singer Harry Styles in the crotch while he was onstage. How is this not a form of assault? And poor Mr. Braeden barely had a full segment because of an upcoming pizza segment? Such respect!

I’m surprised Eric would even be on that show! Why dont the late night guys invite him on their shows? He is a legend!

He is a legend in daytime and his character Victor is one of the most iconic in daytime history. Wouldn’t miss it for the world. Congratulations on 40 years and impacting so many peoples lives. I just read the Soap Opera Digest article where all his co-workers had nothing but glowing praises about the man as a person and a co-worker.

Angela, I also read that Mr. Braeden was a big factor in the returns of Greg Rikaart and Elizabeth Hendrickson as Kevin and Chloe. Apparently Eric is better at determining where the show’s strengths are and who the next generation’s leaders. It sure ain’t Theo, Tessa, Tanner, or any of Amanda’s boyfriends past or present.

I am disturbed by his recent tweet, and am not sure how I feel about him anymore. Why does he feel it necessary to chime in to political discussions? It alienates half of the population.

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.
