The Ellen DeGeneres Show: Jason Bateman, Judy Shepard

My friend, the very funny JASON BATEMAN is coming by today! He’s starring with Vince Vaughn in the new movie “Couples Retreat.” They filmed it in Bora Bora! That gives me an idea… I’m moving my studio to Tahiti! Then, eleven years ago, a tragedy shook the nation -- and me. Matthew Shepard was beaten and left for dead simply because he was gay. His mother JUDY SHEPARD is on the show today to talk about her new book, “The Meaning of Matthew,” in which she recounts the horrific event and the impact it’s had -- not just on the world, but on her as a mother. She has been so strong -- this is an interview you won’t want to miss. Then, I found an adorable 9-year-old named ANNA GRACE who I just had to invite here. She is an incredible performer who sings while playing the piano. Did I mention that she composes her own songs? And country music superstar TOBY KEITH is here to perform his new song “American Ride”!
