Traffic Jam A Driving Force For New Corbin Bernsen Film

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Being stuck in traffic can be a drag but for actor Corbin Bernsen, it was an inspiration.

The former L.A. Law star and current General Hospital cast member just completed his directorial debut, Carpool Guy, and admits he was inspired after seeing people stuck in traffic on an Los Angeles freeway.

In his words, “I started thinking, ‘What would people do to get in the carpool lane? Could they use a doll? Hire their sister? Get a dead body?’”

The end result is a dark comedy that Bernsen figures will appeal to film fans. But while many cars now have DVD players, he’s not sure people should watch his film while driving but admits the soundtrack is perfect if you’re in a traffic jam.

Carpool Guy hits DVD on Oct. 11 and Bernsen will also soon be seen in Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang, a crime drama starring Val Kilmer and Robert Downey, Jr., that opens Oct. 22 in limited release and goes U.S.-wide Nov. 4.
