The hilarious Adam Herschman joined CBS Sports Radio's Ferrall on the Bench to discuss his Hollywood comeback, his new movie, Zen Dog, and his passion for all things Minneapolis sports.

Show host Scott Ferrall asked Herschman, a Minneapolis native, what he thought of the Vikings acquisition of quarterback Kirk Cousins. 

"I was one of the guys who didn't want Cousins," Herschman said. "He's a great guy. He's a very good quarterback, but the fact that he never got it done in Washington – I just wasn't someone who was like, 'We should give him $84 million.' I was like, 'Let's go keep Keenum, let's keep Bridgewater, it was a good season, let's see what we got.' But now I'm on the bandwagon. He's working with Diggs and Thielen. He's totally ingratiated himself to the Vikings, so now I'm on board."

This move came after an emotional postseason for Vikings fans. They reached the NFC Championship on a Hail Mary pass against the Vikings, only to be dominated by the Eagles in the NFC Championship. Ferrall asked how Herschman reacted to that Hail Mary, game-winning play against New Orleans.

"I did lapsm" Herschman said. "Wherever I was, I just remember I started running and I didn't stop running for like three minutes. And I just made a loop around the bar that I was at. It was incredible. It was the most amazing thing that's probably ever happened to me."

Ferrall transitioned to Herschman's career, asking how the actor feels now that he is 12 years in.

"I peaked right away," Herschman said, laughing. "So basically, what I tell people is that you don't want to start on top. And if you do, try and hang on as long as you can. Whatever it takes, just hang on because it's going to go down really, really quick and then it's much tougher to get back on top again. So I'm going on that second climb right now, just kind of scrapping my way back up."
