Bradley Whitford: Functional People In A Dysfunctional Situation

Posted: Updated:

It's a show about women, says Bradley Whitford about his new series "Trophy Wife," and part of his job is to let them shine "like the individual flowers that they are."

Whitford plays a lawyer who's recently gotten married for the third time.  Which implies he's made some mistakes during his first two marriages.  But when Steve Edwards of Good Day L.A. asked him, "How close is the character to you?" Bradley acts, shall we say, coy.

"I've done some of the research," Bradley says with a sheepish smile, "not knowing that it was research."

At which point, Bradley says "I'll just leave it at that."

Awkward? Or self-deprecatingly insightful? You be the judge.
