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.

Jennifer Lawrence Blasts 'Horrible' Harvey Weinstein with Stephen Colbert - Watch Here!

Jennifer Lawrence has a drink, kicks off her shoes, and lets loose in this hilarious interview with Stephen Colbert during last night’s (February 26) episode of The Late Show!

The 27-year-old Oscar-winning actress took aim at Harvey Weinstein, who faces multiple sexual misconduct allegations, after his attorneys cited her and fellow actress Meryl Streep in a legal defense as examples of women he hadn’t harassed.

“He is just that horrible ass boil that does not go away,” Jennifer expressed. “You pop the ass boil. He’s just the worst. When is it going to end?”

Later in the interview, Jennifer addresses “haters” and told them not to watch her latest film Red Sparrow.

“It’s entertaining. Don’t put any political weight on it,” Jennifer said. “Like, if you’re like a typical hater and you have a blog, don’t go! You’re officially totally uninvited. I would like to officially un-invite all my haters to go see Red Sparrow.”

Constance Zimmer made an appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Thursday (February 22) and revealed she watched a real reality TV show push out one of the exact same scenes for her hit Lifetime series UnREAL.

“Sometimes what you’ve seen on our show the next night you will see on an actual reality show. There’s been a couple of times,” the 47-year-old actress revealed. “The one time I got weirdly excited about it was when we made a contestant sh-t herself on television and she was wearing a white dress.”

“Our show airs on Monday nights and then on Tuesday night there was another reality show called Bachelor in Paradise where the guy who I think was called the ‘bad guy’ pooped his pants,” Constance said. “He pooped his pants on television.”

Constance was referring to Bachelor in Paradise‘s bad Chad Johnson – Watch the interview below!

J.J. Abrams had some exciting news for Star Wars fans while making an appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Wednesday (February 21) in New York City.

“We have a script, which is a big deal for me. It starts shooting end of July,” the 51-year-old writer-director told host Stephen about Star Wars: Episode IX. “Having a script in advance is something I haven’t always been lucky enough to have. I’m writing this with Chris Terrio, who is a genius, and I’m having a great time.”

John Boyega, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac and Daisy Ridley are all confirmed to reprise their roles in the anticipated film.

“I was terrified. Luckily, I was surrounded by incredible people,” J.J. added about working on Star Wars: The Force Awakens. “We had a lot of fun. Being back for Episode IX is as surreal as it gets and really exciting.”

Oprah Winfrey Calls Yara Shahidi One of 'the Most Profound 17-Year-Olds Alive'

Oprah Winfrey has nothing but praise for Yara Shahidi!

The 64-year-old talk show host and the 17-year-old Black‑ish actress spoke on stage during Oprah’s Super Soul Conversations at The Apollo Theater on Wednesday (February 7) in New York City.

Oprah even called the actress, activist, and Harvard-bound scholar one of “the most profound 17-year-olds alive.”

“Our generation realizes that age has never been a limit in terms of social activity and being able to look back at the civil rights movement… and see that it does not matter how old you are to get engaged,” Yara said (via ET). “If anything, it is so important to make it our mission, especially if you have the privilege to do so, to be socially aware and to help our global community.”

Yara also revealed that she plans on launching an initiative called “18 by ’18″ to increase voter turnout among young voters, in the hope of to turning activism into “quantifiable action,” to which Oprah replied, “I don’t think I ever knew the words ‘quantifiable action…’ when I was 17.”

“Your future is so bright it burns my eyes,” Oprah added.

Oprah at the Apollo will air on February 27 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network and will be available via podcast at Oprah’s Super Soul Conversations.

Yara continued the discussion during her appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Thursday. Watch the video below.
