CBS Sunday Morning aired the first footage from It's Only a Play ahead of the show's opening night on Thursday.
Fans are treated to their first look at Rupert's eccentric director, Frank Finger, bursting onto the stage in his opening scene and then going a bit crazy by dropping his trousers.
"I have a superstition with my tie. I don't change the knot. I have a thing about that. I keep the same tie knot." Rupert shares.
"Do you still get nervous?" Stahl asks.
"Oh definitely, yeah." Rupert replies.
"Really, every night?"
"Yeah. Always before I have my first entrance. It's terrifying!"
"But boy, it doesn't show -- with you, you come bounding out there," says Stahl.
"Well, once I get the first line out, then I can."
"Once he gets his pants off," dead-panned Abraham.
