Maggie Lawson: There Is A 'Bad News Bears' Element

Posted: Updated:

Maggie Lawson says she enjoys working with James Caan, the former "Godfather" star who plays her father on the new comedy series, "Back in the Game." And that may be because of, or perhaps in spite of, the parental words of wisdom and valuable advice he shares with her.

When she got her period, Maggie says Caan told her to "walk it off; it'll go away."

And when her 10-year-old son came home with a black eye, he told her to grab some bricks, and "go knock the other guy out."

Maggie joins Steve Edwards and Lisa Breckenridge on Good Day L.A.
