One of the biggest hits in TV history, “ER” catapulted Eriq LaSalle to superstardom. As Dr. Peter Benton on that acclaimed show, Eriq broke new ground and shattered boundaries.


Michael Crichton never specified Dr. Benton as African-American,” he says. “But I thought a role that fantastic had to be written for someone white.” Eriq scored Emmy nominations for portraying that landmark character before becoming an in-demand Hollywood director (CSI, Law and Order, Madam Secretary).


Today on BOLD, LeGrande Green interviews Eriq about his latest passion: writing. He has written a best-selling series of thrillers praised by the master of suspense James Patterson as “all chiller, no filler–a white-knuckle read.” Eriq's latest book “Laws of Wrath” follows a serialkiller's rampage through a city.
