Hauser pointed to an I Am Second bracelet he was donning and encouraged viewers to watch a mini-documentary series produced by the group about the healing journey he and his wife, Amy, went on, with some in the audience cheering at his suggestion.

“I did a thing called I Am Second,” he said. “I did this video documentary … we very vulnerably talk about our problems, and how we mended them, and how we got back together. It’s a beautiful story.”

Hauser also enthusiastically shared how anyone interested in knowing more about his story could go to I Am Second to watch the series featuring him and his wife.

The actor also told host Stephen Colbert why his time filming “Black Bird” ended up being transformational, tying it all back to that healing journey.

“This really changed my life, because I ended up getting sober in the middle of the shoot,” Hauser said. “I was kind of in a rough place, personally. I was not the best version of myself.”

He said something changed while filming, though, and he started going to therapy, fighting to right his wrongs, and was able to heal his family. {eoa}
