"It's about three best friends, each hoping to fulfill his dreams before the clock starts running out. It's an honest, emotional, funny and very personal take on the subject. 'Men of a Certain Age' is a very special project for TNT, and we're proud to be doing it with Ray [Romano] and Mike [Royce, showrunner]. When we read the script we knew right away this is a series we want to bring to our audience."<p>To read more, head to the article located <A class="link" HREF="http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/hr/content_display/television/news/e3i33fe2c109f8912f60a93de53ddbee4ab">here</A>.

You know, I have a survey that I give to all my new students and the last question is: "What is your big dream?"
I have gotten some really interesting and fascinating answers.
I have also discovered that some people don't have one. It's a bit like being dead spiritually. Really very sad. Those people need a lot of encouragement.

Scott Bakula is also filming a movie with Matt Damon about the whistleblower at Archer Daniels Midland. It is/was being filmed in my hometown of Decatur, IL.
