    Excellent! Way to go Ben! Now, for this to translate into a first-rate series for Ben in the very, very near future.

    Thanks for the 411, JJ. Keep us posted please.

    Terrific news for Ben and for us! I hope this means that his next TV show is already in the works and ready to roll soon. He’s a great talent, a very hard worker, and focused on doing his best and also making a difference in a number of ways. Far cry from celeb self-centered.

    Nice move by Warner Bros. so I hope they make the most of their investment right away and for the long haul.

    Looking forward to more Ben and Warner Bros. news ASAP.

    Thx, Just Jared. Keep the info coming, please.

    I was hoping that Ben would be on TV again soonest. After seeing the recent news for the movies he’s got coming out, I was wondering if he was switching gears. Best of both with a good choice to balance things for Ben. I’d say that Warner’s made a very smart bet, so I hope they’ve already got plenty planned. Congrats to Ben and ready for the next show. Thanks, Jared.

    Congrats to Ben! Lucky us. Good move by Warner Bros. Don’t keep us waiting. Ben’s latest movie news= good. Ben’s latest TV news= great.

    Always refreshing to see a nice guy finish first, or have a terrific opportunity to shine.

    Oh I sure hope this means that either The Advocates pilot Ben filmed is going to be made or Warner Bros. has a ready plan to roll out ASAP. Definitely time to move on from Southland and I’m excited to see all of the films Ben’s been working on, but top-notch TV character and project trumps all.

    Very happy to know that Ben’s impressed the brass at Warner Bros. and hope this means a long, successful relationship. Congratulations, Ben!

    Great news! Sounds like Warner Bros. made a very good deal. Now how about that new series for Ben? I really respect Ben for all that he does on screen, and especially for what he quietly does for the greater good off screen and privately. I hope this is another good choice and step forward. I’m excited to see how it all plays out too. Congrats, Ben. Here’s to a very rewarding partnership!

    Friends just saw the new indie film Goodbye World that Ben’s in and said that he and Gaby Hoffman are fantastic. It’s at festivals, but I hope it’s coming to theaters very soon. This new exclusive with Ben and Warner Bros. for TV is even better than movie news. I was really looking forward to The Advocates after he did the pilot, so still hoping for that. No matter what, it sure sounds like Warner Bros. has plans for Ben. Very wise. He’s got the all-around game. Ben always tries to make good choices for the right reasons, so I hope this will give him the opportunities. Bring it on! Thanks for posting, JJ. and also about the movie with Pierce Brosnan. Please keep us in the loop.

    Congratulations to Ben on what should be a very big deal. It’s time for a new show, a new role, and hopefully something tailor made for Ben. I can’t wait to see what this means, but I hope Ben’s back in prime time ASAP for the first of many full seasons. Looking forward to the indie movies too.

    Thanks for posting. I’m always going to be a Ben fan. Great news for him and us.
