Imagine having to re-invent yourself as someone a lot younger.  Well, "younger" is the name of a tv land show, with that storyline.  Our Jason Lee spoke to the show's star, Sutton Foster.

Jason Lee:
"Sutton Good Morning. I love the concept of this show. Tell us about Younger."

Sutton Foster:
"Younger is about a 40-year-old mom reinventing herself. She is trying to get back into the workforce and is having trouble getting hired as a 40 year old, and with the help of her best friend and a young guy who mistakes her for being younger than she is, she decides to..if people won't hire you as a 40 year old, she'll tell them she's 26. People believe what you tell them. So she gets hired as a 26 year old in a publishing firm and is now thrust back into the workforce, but has to sort of pull off being in her 20s. "

Jason Lee:
"Is this a hard roll to play because let's face it, acting younger isn't just a matter of appearance, it's a state of mind as well correct? "

Sutton Foster:
"It is. You kind of have to go back in time. You have to let go of the responsibilities and the weights and all of the life that has sort of built up over the years, which has also marinated and hopefully made you into a more complex and wonderful human being. But yeah you kind of have to go back to sort of a naive, optimism and a greenness, but it's nice. It's fun, it's fun to sort of relive my twenties, especially in the safe confines of a TV show. "

Jason Lee:
"So tell us Sutton where and when we can watch Younger."

Sutton Foster:
"The finale airs tonight at 10 o'clock on TV Land. "

Jason Lee:
"Alright we will be watching. Sutton Foster thank you so much for being with us this morning, we appreciate it. And Eye Opener continues."
