The ex-Alias star, 59, plays a hotshot lawyer—who occasionally breaks into musical numbers—on the ABC fantasy about a guy (Jonny Lee Miller) driven by visions.

WHERE DO YOU LAND ON ELI’S BIG ISSUES OF FAITH? I’m open to anything. As a child, I remember thinking there was more than just what’s in front of me. It’s the way I live my life. Not that I receive visions, but I’ve had instincts.

ANY BIG SONG-AND-DANCE MOMENTS COMING UP? “You Don’t Mess Around with Jim.” It’s an old Jim Croce song. I get to dance and sing with a wall of fire. When does that happen on television?

YOU’RE CANADIAN—CARE TO COMMENT ON OUR ELECTION? It’s an extraordinary time. I hope I don’t have to move back to Canada! I’m sorry I didn’t [become a citizen to vote]. I’m definitely going to.

AND HOW’S JENNIFER GARNER? She couldn’t be happier. She’s extremely pregnant. And she’s just one of the most important people in my life.
