Paul and Mae are chatting with actor Billy Bob Thornton about his new Amazon original series "Goliath."

"Executive Produced by David E. Kelley, Goliath stars Billy Bob Thornton, William Hurt, Olivia Thirlby and Maria Bello in the ultimate David vs. Goliath battle fought in the 21st century American legal system. The series follows a down-and-out lawyer (Thornton) as he seeks redemption. His one shot depends on getting justice in a legal system where truth has become a commodity, and the scales of justice have never been more heavily weighed toward the rich and powerful. Billy McBride (Billy Bob Thornton) used to be one of the most powerful attorneys in L.A., but he has since become a shell of his former self, an alcoholic in a rumpled suit. Billy's drinking cost him his wife, Michelle, and his job after his longtime partner, Donald Cooperman, turned on him and kicked him out of their law firm. Still hanging onto his dry charisma and street smarts, Billy has an unexpected second chance at greatness as a new case pits him against his old partner."
