I like the play characters I'm never going to be. I play a huge broadway star that's been really fame for 25 years. I'm selfish. I have an assistant, rheaperlman and a driver, michael richards. We're a family. This guy comes into my life, he was hi kid. I gave him up for adoption 25 years ago. His adoptive parents died. Which is always funny in a sitcom. They've -- they're deceased. He comes to find me. He's not exactly what I would have thought my son would be any way. And hilarity ensues. It's hilarious. I know it is. I have seen it.
