Kevin Costner and Jennifer Garner star in American football drama 'Draft Day'

In today’s show we catch up with the cast of new film "Draft Day". Director Ivan Reitman gives us a behind-the-scenes peek at America's most popular sport - and all this on one of the most unpredictable and exciting days of the league.

Kevin Costner tells us about taking the lead role, as well as commenting on the highlights of his 30-year career. Leading lady Jennifer Garner also reveals how it’s a "miracle" she even starred in the film at all.

Also on the show: in a galaxy far, far away, Star Wars fans look ahead to episode 7 and are already speculating on possible plot lines. We see what they’ve come up with.

Finally, energy-rich Qatar is swapping oil reserves for oil paintings. By lavishing billions of dollars on renowned art works, it’s making a name for itself on the global cultural scene.
