Let's go straight to catherine. I'm here with her. She's an academy and tony award winner. She has two movies opening today. One is called "lay the favorite." And she's here to tell us about her new romantic comedy, "playing for keeps." Including an all-star cast, with jessica biel, uma thurman, dennis quaid, and gerard butler. We had your castmates on. It's great to see you. You play a soccer mom. I am a soccer mom. None of the soccer moms look like you. You look like a soccer mom right now. Sorry. It's a funny movie, about the soccer moms having the hots for the great, cute, soccer coach. Yes. It's fun. A great ensemble cast. Fantastic. What I loved about when I read the script and gabriele muccino, the director, who I love, is italian. He said, you're going to play a soccer mom. He's italian. His accent is really thick. I went, what? Soccer mom? You've got to be kidding me. Are your kids in competitive sports at all? I know you have a son and a daughter. Yeah. No. They're more into skiing and surfing. It gets to be really intense, those soccer games. And swordfighting. They're not into -- it was new for me to go into that world. That culture. That culture, which is really competitive. Not just for the kids at hand, but the moms. Right. We see the parents get into a fistfight. For what? For not kicking the ball right? You not only play a soccer mom. But you play a former sportscas sportscaster. And the coach, gerard butler -- and none of the coaches look like gerard butler. He wanted to be a sportscaster. You used to be a sportscaster. Let's look at the place where he places where he has seen you before. Have we met before? Not that I remember. And I would remember. You look very familiar to me. I get that all the time. Help me out. How do I know you? Okay. Doctors tell me orlando jones suffered a torn acl and will not be returning. That's it. You're a sportscaster on tv. I was. I was. You see? You're not the only one that used to be someone, coach. Was this a fun movie for you to do? It was fun. It was fun. And uma was great. And jessica. I mean, just the ensemble was fantastic. But I have to say that, I watch sports. You're a huge sports fan. Really, more than movies because you never know the ending in sports. In movies, I can always figure it out. That's my job. And you have a run of movies coming out suddenly. Two opening today. And several more coming up in the next few months. You just had "rock of ages" a few months ago. You've been really busy. Yeah. After my brother's cancer, and then, I had my issues, I had to, like, stop for a moment. And then, I've just been doing smaller roles in great, fun movies, with great directors. And that's fun for me. So, it's just like -- it sounds like a whole bunch. But it wasn't that much, really. You did have, you and michael, a really rough year. Not only with his cancer. With his son his problems. And you've been very honest and open about the bipolar disorder. Yeah. How are you now? How are you feeling now? You know what? I'm sick of talking about it because I never wanted to be the poster child for this. Right. And I never wanted this to come out publicly. It came out. And so, I dealt with it in the best way I could. And that was just saying that, look, hey. Bipolar. And you're just like everyone else. Everyone has things gong on in their lives. Everyone has things going on. And we deal with them the best we can. We can't jump from the rooftops shouting, you know, about, i have this. Look at me. Fix it. No. We all have issues in life. And I'm really happy I have great friends, great support. And that's all I can do. Well, you have a lot of people around you who love you. We are old friends. Our kids go trick or treating together. My son has a crush on your daughter. He does? Yes. Zachary's totally into kara. That's so -- I know. We may be planning a wedding some time down the line. There would have to be a prenup. You are too much. Especially, all of the jewels.
