Kiefer Sutherland on 'Designated Survivor': 'It's A Challenge to Write a Political Show at this Precise Moment'

Kiefer Sutherland stopped by The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Tuesday (February 27) and dished about playing a unqualified president on ABC’s Designated Survivor.

“It’s a challenge to write a political show at this precise moment,” the 51-year-old actor told Stephen. “You got nine or ten writers sitting in a room trying to think of something that’s going to be just shocking and unbelievable and I think they’re having a pretty tough time.”

“I am aware,” Stephen quipped, adding that, these days, “reality tends to leapfrog you no matter what you think of.”

That same evening, Kiefer joined his co-star Kal Penn at their 92nd Street Y Presents: Designated Survivor – Talk And Preview Screening held at the Kaufman Concert Hall.
