BABEWATCH: Pretty Little Liars’ Eric Steinberg

January 4th, 2011 | 2 comments | Posted by Jen

Pretty Little Liars is a terrible show, but I’m not going to lie: I’m hooked on it. The series, which centers around a group of girls dealing with the fallout from the murder of one of their besties, Alison, aspires to be like Twin Peaks for teens, or, as I like to call it, Tween Peaks (and yes, I coined that term), but it lacks the psychological depth to actually pull it off. So while the murdered girl is the show’s alleged raison d’etre, it’s really about its other mysteries. Like, how Aria is kind of a dead ringer for Winnie Cooper, albeit a miniature one. Or how the teacher Aria’s hooking up with, Mr. Fitz, would be cute only the haircut they’ve given him is all wrong and makes the top of his head look giant. (Not to mention the fact that he wears vests all the time, which is just, eww.) Then there’s the question of whether Emily is really gay or just a LUG and either way, what does she see in that creepy sisterfucker Toby Cavanaugh besides his mixtape-making abilities?

Or, like, who is that hot piece who plays Emily’s father, Lt. Col. Fields, just back from Afghanistan, who was heavily featured in last night’s season premiere, wherein Emily comes out to him?

This is what I can tell you about that: His name is Eric Steinberg. He’s Judasian. He used to be on The Young and the Restless. According to Wikipedia, his father is a professor of Asian studies at Georgetown, and his mother is Korean soprano Ann Myungsook Lee. Also: his wife on Pretty Little Liars is played by Nia Peeples, and his daughter is played by Shay Mitchell, both of whom are of Filipino descent, which means the Fieldses, who are ethnically ambiguous on the show, are officially one of us. One mystery–solved!

    First of all, I thought I was giving my daughter Aria a unique and cool name. Then I found out about the character on this show when I was in the hospital after giving birth. Bummer.

    Second, I remember seeing Eric Steinberg on NCIS once. He played a bad guy. I did take notice of him, despite being distracted by the yumminess that is Michael Weatherly. The scenes they shared made me VERY happy in a “don’t tell my husband I’m looking” way.
