It's a thriller about all the funny little things happen when a disappearance, murder and other terrible revelations, you know, come to life dash or come to light within the seemingly perfect life of this family. Edgar, are you nervous talking to us? I ask you this because it's such a who done it and when you try to promote it, you can't say anything without giving something away. It's true. Anything can give -- I have to really go around, so around every question I get asked about the show especially because I play the cop.

This will keep you really on your toes until the very end of the show. It's really well-written. David E. Kelly is a genius. Our director is fantastic. The cast is unbelievable. I mean, it was an amazing project. One of the things that also makes the thriller so compelling is the fact that every character is very complex. It has a lot of -- every character has a lot of contradictions. Everyone has its light and its darkness. That's the reason why everyone also becomes a suspect. Complex characters and watch to the very end. We have done interviews with politicians and got more out of them than we're getting from you, Edgar. Edgar is a genius himself. He knows exactly what to say. Such a fan of your work. We can't wait to watch. Thank you for being with us. "The undoing" premiers October 25th on HBO. I love that guy. Are you going to watch?
