Kate Walsh Talks About Her 'Private Practice' Pregnancy Love Triangle (VIDEO)

by Alex Moaba, posted Oct 18th 2011 3:45PM
Kate Walsh's 'Private Practice' character Addison Montgomery wants to get pregnant. The only trouble is, her on-screen boyfriend Sam Bennett, played by Taye Diggs, isn't quite on the same page. Addison goes to Jake Riley, a fertility doctor played by Benjamin Bratt, for "help getting pregnant," but we hear the lines in their patient/doctor relationship start to get blurred.

Walsh went on 'Access Hollywood Live' (weekdays, syndicated on NBC) to talk about the new developments, but remained cagey about the looming love triangle. "We want that to happen for your character ... he offered you a baby," Kit Hoover said. "Well, he is an IVF specialist ... how convenient for us," Walsh said.

Review: Modern Family - Up All Night

by Jason Hughes, posted Jan 7th 2010 11:47AM
Benjamin Bratt, Modern Family: Up All Night(S01E11) You know, I thought Jay was far too clever to be wooed by Colombian charm -- and I'm not talking about Gloria. I think most of us wouldn't mind being charmed by her.

Benjamin Bratt turned in a solid, and charming, performance as Manny's father Javier. He absolutely nailed the elements of the douchebag father who tries to make up for broken promises and absence with gifts and fun, fun, fun. It works on the kids, while they're young, and apparently it works on adults as well.

But it was the kids that were the linchpin of this episode, in a way. They provided the opening narrative to the episode, including Luke trying to figure out what "talking black" means and Alex being told to grow up and act more like an adult; a statement brilliantly followed up with Phil acting absolutely ridiculous with Luke.

How will Benjamin Bratt do on Modern Family?

by Allison Waldman, posted Jan 4th 2010 10:05AM
modern_family_benjamin_brattLast night there was a fresh, new episode of Brothers & Sisters on ABC. I was so elated that I nearly jumped from my chair to see a non-rerun. Well, this week were sorta/kinda back from vacation as a bunch of shows will be airing new shows. For that, I say, "Hooray!"

One I'm really looking forward to seeing is Wednesday's Modern Family with Benjamin Bratt guesting as Manny's father. The reason for my anticipation is this: I haven't liked any of the guest turns on Modern Family thus far this year. I thought Shelley Long was over-the-top as Jay's ex-wife, the mother of Claire and Mitchell; Fred Willard was basically a cameo as Phil's dad; and in one episode, Elizabeth Banks and Ed Norton embarassed themselves as bizarre characters.

What to Watch: December 11

by Kim Potts, posted Dec 11th 2009 6:00AM
'Law & Order' (8PM, NBC)
There are two big mysteries on tonight's episode: a murder with a key piece of evidence missing, and the return of Benjamin Bratt's Rey Curtis. The murder sends Detectives Lupo and Bernard retracing the steps of a murder victim, an election campaign worker who is found dead, disfigured and with the letters 'FED' written across his chest. Meanwhile, Curtis' return is very hush-hush, though we suspect it may have something to do with Lt. Van Buren's ongoing health crisis.

Benjamin Bratt back on the beat at Law & Order

law and order
I started watching Law & Order during the Briscoe and Green days, so I don't know a whole lot about Detective Rey Curtis, Briscoe's former partner from '94-'99. What I do know is that Benjamin Bratt is pulling a Chris Noth and returning to the show that gave him his big break.

Bratt, whose A&E series, The Cleaner, was just canceled, is reprising his role as Detective Rey Curtis on the original Law & Order. However, it doesn't look like the current crime-fighting duo of Lupo (Jeremy Sisto) and Bernard (Anthony Anderson) have anything to worry about: Bratt is only signed up for one episode.

Benjamin Bratt Returns to 'Law & Order'

by Kim Potts, posted Oct 23rd 2009 4:55PM
Has it really been a decade since Benjamin Bratt rode off into the 'Law & Order' sunset?

It has, which makes his upcoming return to the series -- for one episode -- all the more surprising. Bratt, who left his role as New York City police detective Rey Curtis in 1999, will return to the series' NYC set in November to film an episode that is reportedly tied to the cancer crisis of S. Epatha Merkerson's Lt. Van Buren.

Bratt's Curtis was written out of the show when the character took early retirement to care for his wife, who was dealing with advanced multiple sclerosis.

Shelley Long and Benjamin Bratt on Modern Family

by Nick Zaino, posted Oct 14th 2009 2:02PM
Shelley Long on Modern FamilyI was already looking forward to Shelley Long guest starring on tonight's episode of Modern Family. Long is playing the unstable ex-wife of Jay, played by Ed O'Neill, who I also like.

Modern Family
has been one of the best new comedies this year, delivering on the hype surrounding it by establishing an appealing base of characters. And yesterday, according to the Hollywood Reporter, Benjamin Bratt signed on to play Javier Delgado, the ex-husband of Jay's new wife, Gloria Delgado-Prtichett, who is played by Sofia Vergara.

Both are great casting, and seem to be a good fit.

A&E cancels The Cleaner

by Allison Waldman, posted Sep 26th 2009 3:40PM
The_Cleaner_Benjamin_BrattWhile a lot of shows seem to be thriving in cable, in the last couple of days, two series have bitten the dust. TBS dumped The Bill Engvall Show after three seasons, and now A&E Network has canceled The Cleaner, opting not to give the drama series another year. Hmm... does that mean Benjamin Bratt is available to return to Law and Order?

Probably not. Been there, done that, you know. But the TV pro is now unemployed although I doubt that'll be for long. The Cleaner just never really clicked for A&E. It was as intense as the network's hit reality show, Intervention, but it wasn't nearly as compelling.

The Cleaner: The Projectionist - open thread

by Bob Sassone, posted Jul 8th 2009 8:01AM
The CleanerAre you watching The Cleaner? It seems to be the cable drama that has gotten lost in the mix of other shows that get more press and acclaim, like Mad Men, Breaking Bad, Weeds, and Rescue Me. But one friend of mine swears that the show is one of the best shows on television right now.

TV shows and movies about drug addicts always bum me out though.

Benjamin Bratt Interview for 'The Cleaner'

by Maggie Furlong, posted Jul 15th 2008 6:00AM
Benjamin Bratt"It wasn't until I read ['The Cleaner'] script that I thought, 'Does it help me or hurt me that I did 'Andromeda Strain'?'"

Hard to believe it's been almost 10 years since Benjamin Bratt starred on 'Law & Order' -- thanks to syndication, it's
like he never left.

But now he's making a clean break (literally), as William Banks, a recovering addict who helps other addicts, on A&E's 'The Cleaner' (premieres Tuesday, July 15, 10 PM ET).

AOL TV talked to Bratt about his return to TV, second chances ... and his own "addiction."

A&E has a new scripted series, their first in six years

by Kristin Sample, posted May 28th 2008 7:03PM
Benjamin BrattThis summer, A&E will launch its first scripted drama series in six years. The Cleaner stars Benjamin Bratt (Law and Order, Miss Congeniality), Amy Price-Francis (Californication), Grace Park (Battlestar Galactica), Kevin Michael Richardson (Knights of Prosperity), Esteban Powell (Dazed and Confused, Powder), Brett DelBuono (Balls of Fury) and Liliana Mumy (Cheaper by the Dozen).

Bratt will play William Banks, a recovered drug addict who helps others kick their habits. After hitting rock-bottom because of his own problems with addiction, Banks makes a deal with God when his daughter is born. He vows to help others. However, his means of intervention are unconventional and unrelenting to say the least. In the series premiere, Banks helps high school meth addict Zach, a once-promising young athlete. Along the way, Banks discovers the cause of Zach's addiction, a fracture in the family after Zach's father died. He also uncovers a drug-fencing operation.

The Cleaner premieres Tuesday July 15th at 10 p.m. ET. Will you be watching?
