Christopher Jackson of the CBS courtroom drama "Bull" cooks turkey on Thanksgiving every year, but he says this year, he's trying something different. Jackson said he saw a very impressive turkey on the set of the Thanksgiving episode of "Bull."
"We're calling it the prop turkey of 2017," he said. "Our wonderful props guy from 'Bull' -- he's got a guy. After I saw this perfect turkey, I said, 'Would you please give me your guy so I don't have to wake up at 5 a.m.?' and 11 o'clock last night, this turkey appeared on my doorstep." Jackson clarified that it isn't really a prop turkey and that it is edible.
When CBS' "The Thanksgiving Day Parade" hosts Keltie Knight and Kevin Frazier teased Jackson about not cooking a turkey, Jackson insisted, "My bona fides are intact. It's ok. I cook every year, but this year I need a break."
Jackson said he is enjoying getting to know the characters of "Bull" better.
"The [writing] room at CBS has given us some amazing stuff," said Jackson. "We're seeing so much more of all of us -- personality and quirks, different story lines."
When asked if he is keeping "Bull" lead Michael Weatherly in check, he joked, "Everyone tries, but it's a little difficult."
