12 hours before you're about to shoot it. >> jimmy: you've got to memorize your lines. >> and you got to memorize it, and you're still in court, the new scripts come. so i'm not used to this. i got five scripts and they weren't even going to be shooting for another two months. so for me that was a vacation.

[ light laughter ] a female "fight club." >> jimmy: yeah. >> but it's got a lot packed into it and it's sort of on this backdrop of this
incredible actress, joy nash, who plays the lead. she plays an obese girl who is waiting for her life to start once she gets her surgery so that she can be a size six. and a group of women stop her on the way and say, why can't your life start now? what do you think is going to happen? >> jimmy: absolutely. >> and i love that. it's such a positive body image. and it talks about women's body issues.y woman who's afraid of aging, afraid of gaining an ounce. she's insane. someone asked me the other day, why do you think kitty's such a a bitch? i'm like, well she's starving. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: she's just hungry, yeah. >> she's really hungry. and it was a chance for me to just have fun and be the villain and i never get to do that. so -- >> jimmy: i want to show everyone a clip. here's julianna margulies in the new show "diet land." take a look at this. >> you have to be absolutely fanatical to stay under a size two.
