Three years since ending her run on the hit series Medium, Patricia Arquette will be returning to TV sometime next season in the CBS series CSI: Cyber, playing a psychologist and head of the Cyber Crime Division that tackles global Internet crimes.
Meanwhile, she's keeping busy as the mother of two, Enzo and Harlow, and spending time with her extended family that includes her four siblings — actors David, Rosanna, Richmond, and Alexis — and former sister-in-law Courteney Cox (who's newly engaged!) and Coco, Courteney's nine-year-old daughter with David.
YourTango: You're an aunt again — David has a new son.
Patricia Arquette: Yes, he has a new little baby boy. He's a gorgeous, beautiful, happy baby. We're so happy to have that little baby in the family. We're close and when our parents passed away, it made us closer.
YourTango: Might there be a part for your siblings in your new show?
Patricia Arquette: I would love that. I hope so. We haven't worked together lately but we have before and we always want to. They're so fun to work with. We crack each other up. Nobody can crack me up like they can.
YourTango: Do you see Courteney and Coco much?
Patricia Arquette: Yeah, we're very close. We text each other all the time. We love each other. We're always going to be family, seriously. David and Courteney truly are best friends. They love each other so much as parents. They adore each other.
YourTango: Why aren't they still together?
Patricia Arquette: You know … relationships are confusing, right?
YourTango: How are your kids doing?
Patricia Arquette: My son is 25 and my daughter is 11. He's in college and she's in school, playing volleyball.
YourTango: Does she want to follow you into acting?
Patricia Arquette: She gets interested and then not interested. She has her idols and thinks that looks glamorous and fun, but I'm not sure she likes the idea of the work schedule. I don't know that any kid would ... she tends to change her mind a lot.
YourTango: What can we expect from CSI: Cyber?
Patricia Arquette: It's really fresh. It's in the zeitgeist of what's happening right now. Everyone is spying and has been spying and will continue spying. There's stuff that will scare the bejeezus out of you. But there's a lot of good people on the job who say, "That's not OK," and "What are we going to do about this?"
