What teen boy wouldn't like to have a boss who was a former model?

For the movie "Agent Cody Banks," Angie Harmon plays the CIA mentor for the lucky teen-age spy Cody Banks, played by Frankie Muniz.

Harmon explains on The Early Show how her character, Ronica Miles, was being punished by the CIA when she was put in charge of Cody Banks.

Cody Banks is an elite undercover agent for the CIA who was trained to defend himself, to use hi-tech tools and spy in the most dangerous situations. His mission is to befriend a high school girl in order to spy on her father, a scientist working on a project that could destroy the world. But after spending $10 million to train Banks, the government realizes it forgot to teach the young spy to talk to girls. Banks is definitly not a James Bond with the women.

Harmon says Miles is incredibly bitter, angry and self-centered. But Banks and Miles work out their differences to save the world.
