Coming up this evening at 9 p.m., "Piers Morgan Tonight" welcomes Kyra Sedgwick for a revealing and entertaining face to face interview.
Currently gearing up for the final season of the TNT crime drama "The Closer," the actress offers candid commentary on a non-fictional crook, sharing her perspective on Bernie Madoff:
"I see him as a - a sick man. And I - and I see us as you - adults who made a choice," she says of the former businessman and admitted operator of the largest financial fraud in American history.
Sedgwick and her husband, actor Kevin Bacon, were among those who fell victim to Madoff's Ponzi scheme, losing an unspecified amount of money. For her part however, the 46-year-old has moved on:
"I see a lot of people that are so much worse off than we are. And I think that, you know, $%!* happens," she tells Piers Morgan. "He has a horrible life at this point."
Switching gears from those in the big house, to those in the White House, the woman behind the character Deputy Chief Brenda Leigh Johnson isn't acting when she talks about the president:
"I love Obama. I think that he's done some extraordinary things. I think he's had a really, really hard time of it," she allows. "I think that he's been blamed for things that were not on his watch. And I think that given a second term, I think that he will be bolder."
Stating that she will absolutely vote for the incumbent come November, Sedgwick would like to see more citizens make their way to the polls:
"I get flummoxed by the idea that - that we are all not voting, that it isn't, that it's such a small percentage of the country that's actually voting," says the Golden Globe award winner. "It's the one - one of the few things that we can do to actually make a difference."
Watch the clip, listen to the interview, then tune in this evening at 9 p.m., as Sedgwick shares private details of her relationship with Bacon, and teases tidbits from the upcoming final season of "The Closer."
