'24' Finale Will Include Eriq La Salle

by Allison Waldman, posted Mar 29th 2010 12:06PM
eriq_la_salle_smiling_blueThe news that '24' is coming to an end with the finale of this season wasn't as big a shock as some might have thought a few years back. After all, the ratings were down and some folks wondered if '24' had jumped the you-know-what. Still, when a great show calls it a day, it's a sad time for television.

At least in the finale, '24' will be bringing on some big names to gussy up the finish. 'ER's' Eriq La Salle will appear in the last two '24' episodes, for instance. Eriq will not be playing a surgeon asked to stitch together the remaining limbs of Jack Bauer before shipping him off to Kim in California. In fact, he won't be in scrubs at all.

How ER plans to get George Clooney back

by Kelly Woo, posted Sep 22nd 2008 3:19PM
With this being the final season of ER, the show naturally wants to bring back some of its old stars for cameos. George Clooney is the big fish to land, of course, and producers say they've got a juicy storyline to lure him in.

Showrunner David Zabel told TV Guide, "We have a really good story line for every [major] character from the past to show [the actors] what we want to do."

Anthony Edwards is already on board to appear in flashbacks on the Nov. 13 episode (since his character, Dr. Greene, is dead), along with Paul McCrane (Dr. Romano) and Laura Innes (Dr. Weaver). Noah Wyle will guest star in four episodes, and Alex Kingston may show up as Dr. Corday.

Eriq La Salle comes back to TV in... a comedy?

by Joel Keller, posted Aug 17th 2006 11:31AM
Eriq La SalleIf I told you intense actor Eriq La Salle was coming back to TV in a project where he plays one of about the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, would you ever guess in a hundred years that the show would be a comedy? Me neither. Which is why his new project for NBC might be interesting. The former ER star is executive producing and starring in the comedy, called The Four Next Door; where the Four Horsemen are forced to live among the humans when they arrive on earth ten years too early. Heh. Either this is going to be funny as hell or depressing as hell.

Anyway, it's not like this is the first time La Salle has done comedy. Remember he played the Jheri-curled Darryl Jenks in Coming to America. Of course, that was eighteen years ago, but it's on his resume.

(Update: La Salle is executive producing the show, not starring in it. Thanks to Chris Rose for the clarification. I think I inferred the words "starring in" when I read the article. My mistake.)

Somebody's still watching ER

by Anna Johns, posted Jan 14th 2006 12:32PM
What's happening on ER these days? It must be something big because the NBC hospital drama made a huge comeback last week, beating out a repeat of Without a Trace with 15.4 million viewers. Yes, it was a repeat. But, even the repeats on CBS have been kicking NBC's butt lately.

I gave up on ER years ago, even before George Clooney left, because I couldn't handle having a major emotional breakdown each week. I tuned in for a couple of key episodes over the years: i.e. when Lucy and Carter got stabbed in the kidneys, when Doug left, when Carol left, and when Dr. Green died.

So tell me, is it any good?
