Simon Baker Talks 'The Mentalist,' Onscreen Romance and Being a Family Man - VIDEO

Simon Baker, 'The Mentalist'A little while back, 'The Mentalist' star Simon Baker and I had a little playdate ... a playdate that included taking a private plane to Phoenix and chatting live in front of a couple thousand national advertisers at their annual conference. Yep, it's all in a day's work people!

I took along some cameras to capture every minute so you all can feel like you were there too, sitting right next to Simon. We chatted all about how his life has changed since 'The Mentalist' (Thursdays, 10PM ET on CBS) became such a huge hit. Simon then gave his honest opinion about whether or not the CBI team will ever catch Red John, and if there's romance in store for his character, Patrick Jane, and his partner-in-fighting-crime, Teresa Lisbon (Robin Tunney).

We also talk about what a family guy he is. Fun fact: The dad of three actually took the part in 'The Devil Wears Prada' because his daughter told him to. What does she want him to do next? "A romantic comedy," he said with a smile -- a smile that says he's seriously considering it. Swoon.

Watch our video interview now to see it all, and don't miss a few other outtakes -- like the perils of having a 16-year-old daughter -- on The Show Girl. Because, really, isn't everything just a little more fun with Simon Baker?Simon Baker, 'The Mentalist'A little while back, 'The Mentalist' star Simon Baker and I had a little playdate ... a playdate that included taking a private plane to Phoenix and chatting live in front of a couple thousand national advertisers at their annual conference.
