The quirky judge who cried in the courtroom and referred to lawyers by their hometown during the legal controversy over Anna Nicole Smith’s burial may be shopping for a television deal.
Broadcasting & Cable reports Judge Larry Seidlin and his family are in Southern California on vacation, where the legal man is expected to fit Hollywood meetings around a trip to Disneyland. According to the industry publication, Judge Joe Brown’s Executive Producer John Terenzio and CNN’s Art Harris are believed to be advising the bald bench warmer.
According to the magazine’s insiders, a host of networks and production companies could land the Judge including CBS, Warner Bros.’ Telepictures, Sony Pictures Television and Fox’s Twentieth Television. Seidlin’s one-liners, tears and nicknames have already made him infamous enough for “Saturday Night Live” regular Fred Armisen to parody him on a February broadcast.
