USA's new archaeological miniseries Dig is drawing comparisons to Harrison Ford's classic Indiana Jones series – so did Anne Heche pull out her inner Indy for the role?
"It's very Indiana Jones! He kicks butt; so does [costar] Jason Isaacs. I do, too. People die all over the place," the actress, 45, tells PEOPLE of her latest project.
Now that she's got some butt-kicking experience under her belt via the Jerusalem-set conspiracy theory thriller, would Heche's kids say she's a cool mom?

In a no-holds-barred interview, Anne Heche told David Letterman on Wednesday exactly what she thinks of her ex-husband, Coley Laffoon.
"Can you say 'lazy ass' on TV?" Heche, 40, asked on the Late Show with David Letterman when he inquired about her ex, the father of her 7-year-old son, Homer. She quickly retracted her statement, by saying, "No, no, no. That's terrible."
The feud between Heche and Laffoon still continues – even six months after the two reached a settlement in their divorce, which includes monthly child support payments to Laffoon for their son.

How did Ashton Kutcher and Anne Heche prepare to shoot their explicit new film Spread? By scurrying to the gym and slimming down.
"I did everything I possibly could to give him a run for his money onscreen," Heche, 40, told PEOPLE at Saturday night's premiere of the movie in East Hampton, N.Y. "I ran and I did a few more sit-ups than normal ... and stayed away from the butter."
Kutcher, 31, who plays a hustler sleeping his way into a life of privilege (and seducing Heche's character along the way), likewise dropped weight. "I had just played a movie [Personal Effects] where I played a wrestler," he told PEOPLE, "so I had to lose like 10 pounds and stop eating and take care of myself. I really cut back to a meal a day. I was probably down to 175 pounds."

Taking a break from Daddy duty, actor James Tupper joked that fathering his newborn son, Atlas, with Anne Heche has been exhausting.
"It's a bit like having an unreasonable employer," he told PEOPLE. "He doesn't give breaks."
Tupper, who is also step-dad to Heche's son Homer, 7, from her marriage to Coley Lafoon, admits that as babies go, Atlas is very well-behaved. "I always imagine babies crying," he says. "He doesn't really. He's very sweet. He's in a warm bath of love and attention."
