David Boreanaz Learned From The Real Deal For SEAL Team

With all-new episodes of SEAL Team airing on Wednesdays at 9/8c on CBS, David shares stories about working with real Navy SEALs.

After hanging out with real-life Navy SEALs, David Boreanaz has renewed respect for the people who keep our country safe. He stopped by The Late Show and told Stephen about filming the new CBS military drama SEAL Team, the series premiere of which is available now on CBS All Access.

David explained some of the military techniques he's picked up while filming, and revealed what happened when a stunt didn't go quite as expected.

(Hint: His acting got a little too realistic.)

Stephen pulled out a classic photo from David's past, and the actor shared the real reason why he hasn't slowed for a break between his hit TV roles.

Hey, it helps when you can mellow out to the Grateful Dead.
