Robert Blake on Piers Morgan: Explosive Interview Video
Robert Blake: 'I Did Not Murder Bonnie Lee Bakley'
Actor Robert Blake, who hasn't done a television interview in more than 10 years, sat down with Piers Morgan on CNN, ostensibly to discuss his new book. You can see highlights of the Piers Morgan Tonight interview with Robert Blake below. Blake insists on calling Morgan "Charlie Potatoes" for some reason.
Robert Blake's wife, Bonnie Lee Bakley, was shot to death in the couple's car in 2001. Robert Blake was acquitted of murdering Bonnie Lee Bakley, but was found liable for her death in civil court.
Blake and Bakley had a contentious relationship: Robert Blake called Bonnie Lee Bakely "a con artist" in the Piers Morgan interview, and had been convinced that Marlon Brando's son was the real father of his and Bakley's child until a DNA test proved otherwise.
Robert Blake, 78, is best known for his roles in In Cold Blood and the Baretta series. His last film appearance was in David Lynch's Lost Highway. Blake showed up for the Piers Morgan interview in what can only be described as a Crocodile Dundee outfit.
