Mrs. B. and "The Practice" : LUSENET : ER Discussions : One Thread

Is it just me, or was that "Mrs. Benton" on "The Practice" last night? I kept expecting her to call out "Petie! Petie!":)

I was wondering the very same thing!! I just thought it was my own "ER"-obsessed mind, but the actress really did look like her, didn't she?

Speaking of the Benton's, it just hit me recently (so, maybe I'm slow) that Jackie (Khandi Alexander) was on NEWS RADIO with Abby (Maura Thierney).

I usually don't watch the Practice but I saw some of it last night, and I thought the same thing, but I'm Not sure. The actress who played Peter's mom was Beah Richards, who last appeared on the big screen in the film Beloved. I thought I heard she had died, but I could find nothing to confirm. And I also could not track down the name of the woman from last night.

I could be wrong, but it seems to me that there were 2 different women who played Peter's Mom. You know, like the very first Al Broulet appeared only once, then was replaced later by the guy who is on Third Watch.

I just talked to my mom who watches the Practice and said that that WAS Beah Richards, so yup it was D. Pete's mom.
