Wiki

Corbin Dean Bernsen (born September 7, 1954) is an American actor, known for his work on television. His greatest fame came from his role of Arnold Becker on L.A. Law during the late 1980s and early 1990s, though he has appeared regularly as a cast member or guest on other shows, including General Hospital, Cuts, and Psych. More recently, Bernsen was the host of the GSN game show How Much Is Enough?.

Bernsen was born in North Hollywood, California to Harry Bernsen, a Hollywood producer, and veteran soap actress Jeanne Cooper, who appears on The Young and the Restless. He attended Beverly Hills High School in Beverly Hills, California and graduated in 1971. Bernsen is also "double Bruin," having received both a BA in Theatre Arts and an MFA in Playwriting from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA).

Bernsen's first nationwide attention came from two-year role on the soap opera, Ryan's Hope. He was propelled into stardom when he was cast as one of the stars on the hit primetime Steven Bochco series L.A. Law. The role earned him Emmy and Golden Globe nominations, appearances on dozens of magazine covers, and guest starring roles on then-popular shows such as Seinfeld and The Larry Sanders Show. He was one of the few actors to remain on the show from 1986 until the show's end in 1994. While portraying Roger Dorn in the feature film Major League, Bersen was involved in a real life altercation with co-star Charlie Sheen. During the scuffle, Bernsen suffered a slight tear in his rotator cuff, leaving him unable to throw a baseball. For this reason, Bernsen was not in any on-field baseball action for the sequels Major League II and Major League: Back to the Minors. He appeared alongside the British actor Bruce Payne in both Kounterfeit and Aurora: Operation Intercept.
