Exclusive: Elizabeth Berkley Utters 'The L Word'


Elizabeth Berkley, who flirted with the L word during her Showgirls days, is joining the Showtime hit for a multi-episode arc, sources confirm to me exclusively. She’ll play the straight girl that got away from Jennifer Beals’ Bette in college.

Berkley and Beals, in addition to being real-life buds, co-starred together in the 2002 comedy noir Roger Dodger. For a glimpse at their sparkling chemistry, check out this popular YouTube clip, shot behind the scenes on Rodger Dodger.

The L Word‘s sixth and final season debuts next January, although Showtime recently announced that the L-verse would live on in the form of a spin-off — perhaps anchored by Beals and Berkley? (Check out that YouTube clip again; I see potential!)

  • PL

    PFFT, do you have any idea how pissed off the Tibette movement is getting right this very second? Any spin-off with Bette without Tina = DISASTER.

  • a Tibetter

    good lord… can’t be Tibette be happy once and for all?? I hope this new character doesn’t intervene with the happiness of Tibette !!!!!!

  • sarahkb

    Ok im screwing at the thought of berkley being thrown in to just even tempt Bette away from Tee, so to even think of it being more than that well…im not gonna swear here so thats enough from me!!!

  • jes

    NOOOOOOoooooo!!!! If the series ends without Bette and Tina together, I might just consider the first 5 seasons a waste. B&T are the Ross and Rachel of The L Word. No matter how many times they broke up, no matter how mad they got at each other…you knew they were meant to be. If we MUST have Berkley, throw her at someone I couldn’t care less about. Say…Jenny!

    I can’t wait to see Bette now getting away from Elisabeth’s character. I want to see them acting together again bc they have so much chemistry but not as much as Jenn & Laurel as B&T. They still will be together at the end of s.6, i’m sure bc Ilene won’t break them apart again, that wouldn’t make sense.Everybody knows they HAVE to be 2gether
    Buckly, next season of TLW will be on air again in january 09

    I’m so excited!! I’m so excited! I’m so…. scared

  • GeishaCat

    Great, now I won’t have to watch her “acting” on CSI: Miami!

  • Belle

    If Tina stopped whining and stop being so wishy washy I would not mind seeing Bette & Tina living happily ever after. But geech, enough already TINA. First she quits her job to get pregnant and is dominated by Bette, after she has the Angie, she grows a spine and becomes her own woman, but wait, now she wants to be with a man. She has a man but gets bored with him and now wants Bette back. Okay, is it me does Elizabeth & Jennifer look like they should be related?

  • PL

    Belle – Tina is not whiny and wishy-washy. Did you not watch S5? Please get over the stupid S3 man storyline already. Tibette are the love of each other’s lives as JB and LuH have stated countless times already.

  • afan

    jbface…remembering the days of Saved by the Bell are we! What is it with Showtime not keeping these great shows going? I enjoyed Soul Food, and that’s gone. Now The L Word is about to be fini next January! I can’t take it!

  • surfergirl577

    Obviously Tibette needs to live for the show to end on a high note. They should have done this in an earlier season, not so close to the end. NOT happy about this.

  • sleeegirl

    GOD! i cant beleive this! i dont want tina and bette will break again cause of that straight girl!! i agree with all you guys! i love tibette.. they must be ended together on season 6..

  • riley

  • Kurt Steinberg

    Are A.C. Slater and Screech Powers also scheduled to appear on the show?
