Actor Jeffrey Dean Morgan stars in the new big screen action thriller, "The Losers." And that title does not in any way describe Morgan's career. Entertainment reporter George Pennacchio talked with the actor, who is now enjoying the ride of his life."I pinch myself. I don't know how it has happened, but I'm happy to be doing it," said actor Jeffrey Dean Morgan.

We first met the actor when he won over audiences on "Grey's Anatomy," playing Denny, the ill-fated love of Izzie's life. With that role everything changed.

"My first sort of interview was with you, ever in my whole life, during the 'Grey's' thing. I wake up every morning and say 'This cannot be real,'" said Morgan. "There was 20 years where I have been in this business and nothing happened. The last four years have been a dream come true."

Morgan's latest film is action-filled and based on the popular comic book series, "The Losers." His character is part of an elite group of ex-CIA Special Forces agents now on the "outs" with their bosses.

"So I think we're beating some movies to the punch, I think," said Morgan. "And it's April man. It's a good time to see a movie."

Now that Morgan's career is in full gear he hasn't taken much time off.

"I don't think I've taken more than two weeks off in five years," said Morgan. "Right after I leave here I'm going to start a movie with Sam Worthington called 'The Fields.'"

Meantime, you can catch "The Losers" in theaters this weekend.
