Powell, a 1998 graduate of DePauw University, portrays the father of 13 children in the episode, "Truth Will Out," which airs at 10 p.m. Eastern time.

"I have to say, when they herded through all 12 of the live kids (the 13th was an amazingly lifelike infant doll), drew powell 2005.jpgI had to catch my breath," Powell reports. "How do you feed that many kids? And what about bathing? I was sweating just thinking about it. Anyway, the episode is a good one and it might be worth checking out."

A Media Fellow at DePauw, Drew Powell was recently featured in the motion pictures 1408 (which starred John Cusack and Samuel L. Jackson) and The Marine.
