Peter Bergman (Jack) who received wonderful news this past Wednesday that he was nominated this year for a Daytime Emmy nomination, along with his cast mate, Doug Davidson (Paul) in the Outstanding Lead Actor category, took time out to speak with On-Air On-Soaps about getting the recognition from his peers, but also talked about the glaring omission that has fans and soap pundits stunned… that Stacy Haiduk (Patty/Emily) did not pick up a Supporting Actress nomination, when many had predicted her to be one of the front runners.

Bergman said,  “I am sad that Stacy Haiduk did not receive a nomination.  She was the glue to this whole thing.  It’s worth saying that Doug Davidson’s performance on his tape is with him and Stacy, and it was enough to get him a nod. That is a great compliment to Stacy.  The way mine was a compliment to Sharon Case (Sharon) and Billy Miller (Billy), who were on my submission tape.  I have not made a secret of the fact that double identity is not my favorite storyline vehicles.  It has only worked on our show because Stacy Haiduk is so brilliant at it. I watched Tuesday’s air show, and the last scene we see of Patty, she is in a straight jacket.  They cut to her, and she is twelve years old, and it’s chilling.  She is now finally OK.  Patty is in safe place with her brother, and it contrasted so starkly to everything that actresses does.  And I said, “There she goes again…Stacy Haiduk!”

I’m so glad that Peter Bergman spoke out about Stacy Haiduk. I agree 100% that she deserved a nomination mote than any actress for her Patty/Emily role on Y&R. She has been amazing. She must be very disappointed after working so hard. I don’t understand these award shows at all. Hopefully, she will get one next year. Also, I don’t get Regis Philbin hosting the Emmys. Isn’t he getting a little long in the tooth? That award show is going backwards. Where are the young smart stars? The producers could do better. If Regis is going to sing and with… Read more »

I’m very glad that Peter spoke up in the Stacy issue – what a wonderful and talented actress! Sheer talent pulled of this triple role (Mary Jane, Patty and Emily) and in return Stacy has been snubbed and treated quite badly as well. CBS, you should be ashamed. The Emmy snub is explainable – she is TOO good and those sad decision-makers must feel like big fish in a little pond. Aren’t you proud of yourselves!! I’m disgusted.

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 womanizer 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 80’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.

Justin Hartley Voices ‘Superman’ In New Animated Feature ‘Injustice’

Here’s yet another role that Justin Hartley was born to play, but this time he’s doing it with a twist! Hartley is playing the man of steel, Superman, in the new animated feature from DC Comic and Warner Brothers titled Injustice.

However, being that it’s animated, fans can hear Justin’s voice as Superman.  This is the third superhero role in Hartley’s career having played Green Arrow on Smallville and then Aquaman for a proposed series from the same team.  Of course, soap fans love him for his roles on Passions (Fox Crane) and The Young and the Restless (Adam Newman), while primetime audiences continue to love his portrayal of Kevin Pearson on This Is Us.

In this new animated featured inspired by the popular video game, things go very wrong for Superman, when The Joker tricks him into murdering Lois Lane!

Justin spoke to TV Insider about taking on the legendary super hero via voice-over and shared what was the appeal for him to do. Hartley expressed: “I loved the arc of the character. I love the way it started and how you get behind him. You go, ‘This is very cool to see him at home and nesting and having a good time.’ And then all hell breaks out and I loved the idea that they wrote this guy flawed and this idea of Superman not having all of the answers… and sometimes, the answers that he has are outrageous. That’s a fun character to play.”

Injustice is out tomorrow on October 19th on 4K, Ultra-HD Blu-ray Combo Pack,Blu-ray, and Digital.  Check out a trailer for it below.

So what do you think of Justin as Superman? Comment below.
