Michael Weatherly’s new drama may be titled Bull, but if his costars had it their way it would be called Bae.

While previewing the upcoming CBS series, the cast was given random words to use in describing the show. When the affectionate slang word ‘bae’ popped up, it was an easy assignment. “Michael Weatherly, he’s bae,” said Christopher Jackson. Annabelle Attanasio firmly agreed, “Michael Weatherly’s bae.”

In Bull, based on the early career of Dr. Phil McGraw, Weatherly plays Dr. Jason Bull, the head of a trial consulting firm, who combines psychology and high-tech data to help his clients win their cases. The former NCIS star had the task of using the word “bizarre” to describe the new series.

Bull is a show about human behavior and sometimes it is bizarre. Why do we do the things we do,” said Weatherly. “It’s also a little bit about human psychology, it’s also in a big way about the human heart.”

The series premieres Tuesday night at 9 p.m. ET on CBS. Watch the video above.
