Freddie Highmore - 'The Good Doctor'

Episode Summary

The star of TV’s highest-rated new network drama, whose portrayal of an autistic surgeon has already brought him a Golden Globe nom, looks back on child stardom, re-emerging as an adult on the drama series 'Bates Motel' (he received Critics' Choice noms for three of its five seasons) and then heading right into another, very different show. But first: Borys Kit, a senior staff writer at THR who oversees its 'Heat Vision' blog, joins Scott to discuss this weekend's release of 'Solo: A Star Wars Story,' this summer's roster of popcorn movies and the potential for fanboy and awards-voter overlap on 'Black Panther' and 'A Quiet Place.'
