READ about Piers Morgan's long career in journalism here.
All this week CNN is airing some of Piers Morgan's greatest hits – tonight at 9pmET/PT, watch the hour with Oscar-winner Jeff Bridges.
Here's Bridges talking about his break in the industry – thanks to his father:
When Morgan pointed out Bridges' reputation as "the nicest guy in show business," the younger Bridges again credited his father's guidance.
"You know, I take my lead from my old man," said Bridges, "Who loved showbiz so much and, yes, I got to work with him as a kid on 'Sea Hunt.' You know, whenever there was a role for the little kid, he'd say, 'Come on, get out of school and come and play with Dad.'"
Watch the preview above, in which Bridges talks about portraying drunks in film. See the full interview tonight at 9pmET/PT.
