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.

Kiefer Sutherland Is Grateful That Julia Roberts Ended Their Engagement

Kiefer Sutherland and Julia Roberts were famously in love in the early 1990s and the actress called off their engagement just days before their wedding.

The 49-year-old Designated Survivor actor is opening up about his former relationship 25 years later and why he is grateful that Julia called it off.

“I think she was being realistic for herself and I think that’s much better,” Kiefer told People. “I think it’s hard to explain the pressure. We were young and we were both very much in love and we had decided that we wanted to get married.”

Julia and Kiefer met on the set of Flatliners, which was released in 1990.

“She was arguably the most famous woman in the world and this wedding that was supposed to be something between the two of us became something so big,” Kiefer added. “And then in the middle of that I think she had the courage ― it wasn’t what she wanted to do in the end. And I think it took a lot of courage, in amongst all that other stuff, to be able to say, ‘I can’t do this.’ And I’m gonna leave it at that.”
