Kiefer Sutherland Talks U.S.’ “Most Bizarre, Unfortunate” Election Cycle, ’24’ &amp ‘Lost Boys’ – Mipcom

Kiefer Sutherland’s Designated Survivor character Tom Kirkman goes through a seemingly unimaginable overnight transformation in the pilot, from low-level cabinet member to President of the United States after a catastrophic attack kills everyone above him in the government. And yet, the star and exec producer says what’s happening in the U.S. right now is far stranger than fiction. At the Mipcom TV market in Cannes this afternoon, Sutherland told a packed Palais audience, “This is certainly the most bizarre and unfortunate political election cycle I’ve ever witnessed in my lifetime — and I still remember Watergate. It’s so negative, so polarizing and polarized. You can talk about the candidates all you want, but people are backing these candidates and the rigidity of it is alarming.” Where art veers dramatically from the current state of real life is that in Designated Survivor, “We can have elements from left, right and center discussed factually, correctly, calmly, intelligently. There’s a great responsibility in that and we have a great opportunity to maybe add some elastic back to the political discourse in the U.S. If we can accomplish that, I will be very proud of our show.” Sutherland says the hot new ABC series, from The Mark Gordon Company and ABC Studios, “has a really fresh point of view. The common sense is the foundation of the character… (Kirkman) can approach the country’s issues domestically and abroad with common sense and fairness as opposed to a political agenda that has been dictated by three years of campaigning.” It’s when Kirkman becomes more political that “he starts to make mistakes,” Sutherland said, adding, “That will be a constant thread throughout the show.” The erstwhile 24 star said he found similarities between that series’ iconic Jack Bauer character and Kirkman. “Both have a desire to serve and both are willing to take on a fight they know they can’t possibly win. The through-line is something I really relate to. I would like to aspire to be one of those people.” In fact, if Sutherland were able to revisit one of the characters from his past, he wouldn’t reach too far. “It would be Jack Bauer because I played him for so long… I’ll hold him very close to my heart so if there’s another way, one day down the line to visit that… But my primary focus is on Designated Survivor and I’m hoping we get to do it for a while.” While 24 was the “greatest and most rewarding experience” for him as an actor and a person, it was “a lot of work,” Sutherland said. Being aware of the long days and time commitment, he wasn’t too keen to get back into series TV. But, he knew if he didn’t do Designated Survivor “for reasonable reasons, I would really regret it.” He praised veteran producer Gordon as a “great editor.” With the pilot, “we shot an incredible amount of footage and he was so delicate with how he put it together. I can try a lot of different things and feel very confident that in an editorial phase, Mark will handle that in an incredibly smart way.” The series, Sutherland explained, allows for more flexibility than he had on 24 where “the real-time aspect was the real star of the show, but also a problem. We would paint ourselves into a corner around episode 14 or 15 and we’d have to do something wonky and then make up for it.” Designated Survivor is “designed to never get caught in that position… If at one point the political storyline is having difficulty, then it can shift back to the family drama. The three storylines living inside the show at all times give the writers time to react.” On why he first opted to move into television with 24, Sutherland laughed, “The reality is my film career was in real trouble.” Today, he said, there are so many film actors working in TV because “it’s the most exciting medium… When I started working, there were five studios in the U.S. and all were making 50 movies a year. Now there are barely three making 15. And if you’re going to do one of those movies, there’s a pretty good chance you’re going to be wearing tights and a cape. The movies I grew up loving aren’t getting made. That kind of storytelling has been absorbed by television.” Sutherland took a stroll through some of his more enduring film roles saying Stand By Me was all down to Rob Reiner. “He told a story that was so close to his own heart and the innocence of youth was really important for him to tell.” Of 1987’s The Lost Boys, Sutherland said the only thing he regrets is that he was so young when it happened. “I wasn’t aware that we were making something that was going to last as long as it has and be this iconic pop thing… That film will always surprise me. If I do a signing for something, that’s the one that someone will show me their calf and there’s a Lost Boys tattoo on it. I wish I’d been a little more mature and able to understand how cool it was to be a part of it.” deadline.com

Mipcom: Kiefer Sutherland on the Lessons of ’24′ Actor and exec producer presents ‘Designated Survivor’ at Cannes

CANNES, France — The ghost of Jack Bauer haunted the Palais des Festivals’ Grand Auditorium in Cannes on Monday evening as Kiefer Sutherland talked in a masterclass Q & A about his new fall series, “Designated Survivor.” “24” was a constant reference for Sutherland and for the audience, which created him with whoops of applause. But the crowd fell silent when Sutherland reflected on the upcoming U.S. presidential election. “This has been the most bizarre and unfortunate political election cycle that I have ever witnessed in my lifetime, and I still remember Watergate. It is so negative, so polarizing and polarized,” Sutherland said. In contrast, though it is make-believe, “Designated Survivor” has a point of view “from left, center and right,” Sutherland said, “discussed factually, correctly, calmly, and intelligently” – one of the reasons he agreed to do the show. Bowing solidly on ABC on Sept. 21, then notching up TV’s best-ever Live+7 ratings gain, “Designated Survivor” has Sutherland playing Tom Kirkland, an architect with no political aspirations, who becomes president of the United States as the only member of the cabinet to survive a terrorist catastrophe. “It wasn’t until I actually started performing the character that I realized there was a real similarity to Jack Bauer,” Sutherland told the audience in Cannes. He went on: “Their skill set is very different. President Tom Kirkland probably doesn’t know how to load a gun, let alone shoot it. But both characters have a desire to serve, to take on a fight they know they can’t possibly win.” Sutherland said he learned a lot from “24.” “Joel Surnow, the creator of  ’24,’ actually taught me something. The writers had all their offices on the second floor of the stage where we shot it. We never went up there and they never came down,” Sutherland recalled. “I once asked Joel: ‘Why don’t you ever come down and check on what we’re doing?’ He said: ‘Because I hired the people I wanted to do what they are doing.’” “’24’’s real time aspect was ‘“the real star of that show, and also a flaw,” Sutherland argued. “We would paint ourselves into a corner in the storyline. Almost every year right around episode 14 to 15, we’d have to do something wonky to get around that. Then we would make up for it in the last 8 episodes.” In contrast, “Designated Survivor” unspools on three levels, Sutherland said: the thriller aspect, as a family drama, and “the political aspect of the story.” “If at one point the political storyline is having difficulty, the show can shift back to being more of a family drama for two episodes and giving a reason for the political thing to take over. Same with the investigation of the bombing,” Sutherland said. “The fact that the three storylines are living within the show all at the same time gives the writers incredible flexibility also to react to what an audience is enjoying about the show.” Even critics who are negative can be constructive, said Sutherland, who told the story of a writer who penned a negative review of Season 6 of “24.” Sutherland telephoned the man, who answered nervously, worried about a confrontation. “I said, ‘Look, I agree with some points, and can we have a discussion about it?’” The two men did, and Sutherland went back to producer Howard Gordon. “It really impacted how we moved forward with the show.” The actor credits “24” with reviving his career. He’s happy to be back on TV with “Designated Survivor,” which could consume the next 10 years of his life. “TV is the most exciting medium right now,” Sutherland said, adding: “‘Godfather,’ ‘Lawrence of Arabia,’ ‘Serpico,’ ‘French Connection,’ ‘Ordinary People,’ ‘Terms of Endearment’: Those movies aren’t really getting made the way they were. That drama, that kind of storytelling, has been absorbed by TV. For the writers who want to tell real drama, TV is where it’s at.” variety.com

DESIGNATED SURVIVOR Featurette: Kiefer Sutherland and Maggie Q Tease ABC’s New Political Drama

Kiefer Sutherland is heading back to primetime TV as the world’s most unlikely president in ABC’s DESIGNATED SURVIVOR.

“My character, Tom Kirkman, goes from a guy who was on the way out to the President of the United States,” Sutherland says about his new show. In fact, Kirkman was a low-level cabinet minister who was chosen as the “Designated Survivor” during the President’s State of the Union address, despite the fact that the President was prepared to let him go that very morning. But a terrorist attack kills nearly the entire US government in one fell swoop, leaving Kirkman as the man in charge. While he’s doing his best at a job he never wanted, there’s a lot of resistence in the White House and the military as to whether he can actually lead the country in a time of crisis.

Meanwhile, Maggie Q plays Hannah Wells, an FBI agent who is called in to investigate the attack. “There is going to be a lot of conspiracy theory and a lot of twists,” Maggie Q warns.

Designated Survivor stars Kiefer Sutherland as Tom Kirkman, Natascha McElhone as Alex Kirkman, Maggie Q as Hannah Wells, Kal Penn as Seth Wright, Adan Canto as Aaron Shore, Italia Ricci as Emily Rhodes, LaMonica Garrett as Mike Ritter, and Tanner Buchanan as Leo Kirkman.

Designated Survivor is from The Mark Gordon Company and ABC Studios. David Guggenheim is creator and executive producer. In addition to Guggenheim, the series is executive produced by Simon Kinberg, Kiefer Sutherland, Mark Gordon, Nick Pepper, Suzan Bymel, and Aditya Sood. Paul McGuigan directed the pilot episode.

Le retour de Kiefer Sutherland

24 a marqué la télévision. Huit saisons à un rythme d’enfer de 2001 à 2010 (et une mini-série en 2014). Après six ans d’absence au petit écran, l’acteur canadien Kiefer Sutherland fait un retour très ­attendu dans un drame politique, cette fois-ci. Designated Survivor (dès le 21 septembre sur ABC) raconte l’ascension de Tom Kirkman, seul survivant d’une attaque terroriste qui tue tous les membres du ­cabinet, du Congrès et le président des États-Unis dont il doit prendre la ­place pour mener à bien le pays.

Sutherland ne sera pas bien loin de la série dérivée du succès 24, 24: Legacy. Si son rôle de Jack Bauer l’a élu au rang de superstar, il agira cette fois-ci comme producteur. 24: Legacy raconte, en temps réel, les prouesses d’Eric Carter, un ancien militaire, pour faire avorter l’attentat terroriste le plus meurtrier de l’histoire américaine. Il faudra par contre attendre en février pour découvrir les péripéties de Carter puisque la série devrait être lancée après le SuperBowl, soit le 5 février 2017 sur les ondes de Fox.
http://www.journaldemontreal.com

Designated Survivor est l’une des séries les plus attendues de la rentrée. Et ce n’est pas pour rien. Son pitch (un politicien se retrouve à la tête des USA après un énorme attentat) et son casting sont tels que tout le monde en parle. Qu’il s’agisse des médias américains (qui enchaînent les sujets sur la série) ou des internautes (qui en parlent beaucoup sur les réseaux sociaux), Designated Survivor devrait marquer l’automne d’ABC. Notamment parce que c’est sur cette série que la chaîne a le plus misé cette rentrée. Mais vaut-elle vraiment tout ce buzz ? Eh bien oui ! Notamment parce que l’on y verra le retour à la télévision du génial Kiefer Sutherland. Et après avoir joué un agent des services secrets pendant 11 ans dans 24 heures chrono, vous noterez l’ironie de le voir désormais incarner un Président des Etats-Unis… Porté par Maggie Q, Natascha McElhone et Kal Penn, ce nouveau thriller politique et familial devrait tous nous intéresser. Et ce, dès le pilote ! D’ailleurs nous vous avons remis le trailer ci-dessous. On vous le dit, vous allez adorer.

 Designated Survivor (ABC) « Kiefer Sutherland » Interview HD

Image de prévisualisation YouTube

Kiefer Sutherland is saying goodbye to Jack Bauer and hello to the White House.
Sutherland, 49, makes his triumphant return to TV with ABC’s anticipated new drama, Designated Survivor, and ET has the exclusive first look at his presidential debut.
In Designated Survivor, the former 24 star plays Tom Kirkman, a low-level White House cabinet member who becomes the de facto president of the United States after a devastating attack on Washington, D.C., during the elected commander in chief’s State of the Union address. What comes next is an unimaginable (and dramatic!) sequence of events that kicks off the explosive premiere.
The show, which boasts a star-studded ensemble, promises to chart the ascension of an “everyman, this Mr. Smith,” as executive producer Mark Gordon puts it, as he stumbles over his new duties as leader of the free world.
“The show is going to be about the aftermath and picking up the pieces,” says Natascha McElhone, who plays Tom’s wife Alex Kirkman.
“You see this normal guy in complete shock when this happens and you have to see how he evolves into being a productive president,” adds co-star Italia Ricci, who plays Tom’s Chief of Staff Emily Rhodes.
“What I think is interesting over the long view of the show is that age-old question: Do corrupt people ascend to power, or does power corrupt?” Sutherland hints, alluding to rocky times ahead for the newly-minted president.
“Here is this very good person and what is going to become of him over the long haul?” he asks. “I haven’t gotten to read those episodes yet, so I don’t know either. I’m waiting to see.”
At the Television Critics Association summer press tour in August, Sutherland admitted he had no intentions of returning to TV following his stint on 2014’s 24: Live Another Day. “I found myself on page 22 and I remember saying, ‘Sh*t,’” he recalled.
“It wasn’t that I wasn’t looking for it. I hadn’t read anything very good and I didn’t want to just do something for the sake of doing it, so I was just caught off-guard by how special I thought [the Designated Survivor] script was,” Sutherland added. etonline.com

Designated Survivor : Kiefer Sutherland « Je n’avais pas l’intention de rejouer dans une série »

En pleine promotion de sa nouvelle série Designated Survivor, Kiefer Sutherland a reconnu ne pas penser « rejouer dans une série » jusqu’à ce projet !

« Durant le discours sur l’état de l’union, un membre du Cabinet est amené dans un endroit classé top secret. En cas d’attaque dévastatrice à l’encontre de notre gouvernement, ce membre du Cabinet devient notre nouveau Président. » Avec un tel pitch, il va sans dire que Designated Survivor a de très grandes chances d’être le prochain hit de la chaîne américaine ABC. Notamment parce que la série serait un mix réussi entre House of Cards, Quantico et Homeland ! Rien que ça. Plus encore, le script semble si bon que personne sur le plateau n’a pu ne pas s’y intéresser. Lors du récent TCA Summer Press Tour, l’acteur principal, Kiefer Sutherland, a évoqué ce scénario que les critiques adorent déjà. Retranscrit par TV Line, l’ancienne star de 24 heures chrono commence par dire : « Je n’avais aucune intention de rejouer dans une série. Mais je sentais qu’il fallait que je fasse une lecture rapide de ce script pour pouvoir expliquer pourquoi je ne ferai pas la série. »

Et tandis que les fans de Designated Survivor sont impatients de voir le retour de Kiefer Sutherland, l’acteur de 49 ans ajoute : « J’ai trouvé que le scénario est très bien construit. Il y avait le côté thriller, du drame familial, et il se permettait également de soulever des questions politiques que je pense nécessaires sur le plan rationnel. » melty.fr
