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?

Despite the freezing temperatures on set, James Tupper says working with penguins for his new film, Mr. Popper's Penguins, proved an "unbelievable" experience.
"They have this amazing quality where their chests are really open," he tells PEOPLE. "Anytime you see somebody like that, they're either on the dance floor or on drugs or something. So they're waddling around like that with this incredible openness and it created this energy on the set. When we got to work with them, it was kind of unbelievable."

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."

Anne Heche, who is dating her Men in Trees co-star James Tupper, says onscreen love scenes are "less challenging" with a real-life boyfriend.
"Usually when you're doing a love scene with somebody you're not in love with, it’s like you kiss and you kiss and then you think, 'Oh, great.' And then they yell, 'Cut,' and you just split apart right away and act like you don't really like the person," she tells Extra.
