Having memorably played a tough but warm-hearted Harvard Law professor in Legally Blonde and sassy mom Evelyn Harper on Two and a Half Men, veteran actress Holland Taylor is now up for a Tony Award for Broadway's Ann, her one-woman show in which she plays the late, feisty Texas Gov. Ann Richards.

"I think he's really enjoying fatherhood," says Taylor, "and it's really deepened his life and his commitment to life."
