Thanks for the wonderful interview with Hillary B Smith. So enjoyed her on OLTL over the years !! Had the pleasure of seeing her in NYC play last fall. Fumbling Thru the Pieces is a funny webseries & I’m enjoying seeing HBS in this role.

What a pleasant interview, Michael. Have always loved Hillary. She is so natural. Just like Bob Woods. They were a perfect match on OLTL which I sorely miss. I am glad she is happy and continuing the work that she loves and does so well.

What a wonderful interview…thanks Michael. It’s great seeing Hillary and I am happy to know that she is doing well and enjoying herself! I love Venice and am anxiously awaiting the next season and I still need to catch up on Fumbling. I do miss seeing Bob and Hillary together on screen as Bo and Nora. They truly are the best soap couple! I heard that Bob is going to be on The Grove…..Hillary producing…perhaps she will show up as a character that is involved with him!!

Great interview. HBS is awesome and right – we fans just love to be able to see her in any role. she can play them all if give the chance. FTTP second season was truly worth the wait! HBS did an great job in Any Given Monday! Miss her as Nora, but look forward to seeing her in other roles as well. B&B should consider expanding her character! Guya is a very interesting, deep character! Keep doing what you do! and thanks for being so AWESOME and CARING to us FANS! Best to you always! Take Care HBS!! Thank you… Read more »

I saw on amazon.com yesterday a Vhs tape about OLTL. It’s some of the popular weddings from OLTL soap & its about 45minutes………………It cost $2 & change but there are only 3 left..I would like it better if it were on dvd instead ..Vhs tape doesn’t last as long as a dvd…..Maybe they will put it on dvd sometime…

PLEASE ask her if my all time favorite sitcom SOMETHING WILDER going to be on DVD or be available on the internet like youtube or Hulu. (Or send me a copy:) I have a few episodes on tape and would love to have all of them including the three which never aired.

When you live in Stockbridge and Alice Cooper is your neighbor life can’t get any better. 😉

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.
