Seems kind of silly, but it looks like Warner Brothers wants a more definitive return on their investment so they are bringing Eriq LaSalle back to ER according to a story on E! Online. I like the part of Benton, but he made a nice exit from the show. If the producers wanted to get their full $9 million return on LaSalle's salary (which is a reasonable request, of course), they should have waited until the end of the season to write him out of the show. What's he do now, come groveling back to Romano for a job? That's way out of character.
