Holly hunter stars in the highly anticipated movie "Batman V Superman: Dawn of justice." These two were making me laugh. She plays a senator squaring off with Superman. Take a look and let us gather ourselves. This is how a democracy works. We talk to each other. We act by the concept of the governed, sir. I have sat here before to say that shadow interventions will not be tolerated by this committee. Neither will lies because today is a day for truth. Holly hunter joins us now. You're in an action movie. Holly hunter in an action movie. Did you jump at the part? Yeah, of course, I totally wanted to be part of this. No downside to it. Nothing but fun. Yep, exactly. And you're one of toast actresses who does her homework for each and every role you play. What went into creating or looking into becoming senator finch? Well, it was interesting to be in a movie that had so much testosterone. All these incredibly powerful guys and I thought that, you know, as a senator, she brought her femaleness to the job and how she listened and her curiosity in her ability to evaluate felt very female to me. It's so funny you mentioned there was a lot of testosterone on the set. That was literally my next question. There was a lot of testosterone on that set. What was it like working with Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill. Henry is utterly adorable. I didn't get the fun of working with Ben, but Henry is just a lovely guy. He is. Utterly lovely. What doesn't he have going for him? Nothing. Next year marks the 30th anniversary of two of your most well-known roles. "Broadcast news" and "Raising Arizona." I remember it and "Broadcast news," what an incredible role. I think we have a clip. It's the clip we all probably love the best. Let's take a look. Must be nice to always believe you know better. To always think you're the smartest person in the room. No, it's awful. It's still really funny even though I've seen that probably 30 times. At the time did you realize that movie was going to become the cult classic that it is? Well, you know, everybody felt that we were working on something that was going to be -- that was going to have some power. It's awesome but so is the pose current movie. "Batman V Superman." Holly hunter, thanks so much for joining us. Thank you. And "Batman V Superman: Dawn of justice" opens on March 25th.
