I have always thought that Donald Sutherland, Kiefer's Dad, was one of the best actors working. And he's been around a long time, but like Sean Connery, Donald just gets better as he gets older.
When I was younger, I loved Donald Sutherland in the movies Bear Island, and in The Eye Of The Needle.
He is instantly recognizable, and even Donald's voice overs on documentaries and such are cool, as his voice is easily recognizable.
And I've liked Kiefer a long time too, especially in The Vanishing, but I have to admit that I am one of the few people in America that has never watched 24. I really don't watch a whole lot of TV, and it seems to be such an intricate show, that, since I haven't seen even one episode, I don't feel like trying to play catch up.
And I always wondered what it must be like for Kiefer to be in the shadow of such a great actor as his Father is.
Well, I think that after the success of 24, ol' Kiefer is finally a star in his own right.
Because a couple of weeks ago, Number One Daughter and I were talking, and she referred to Donald Sutherland as "that Dude on 24's Father."
Yep. Ol' Kiefer has officially hit the Big Time.
After years of struggling for acclaim and being called only "Donald Sutherland's son," the tide has turned, and Donald is now "that Dude on 24's Father."
I wonder if Donald and Kiefer are having problems because of this change in their lives, or if they are still close as Father and Son.
As for me, I hope they're close. Because their situation is really kinda cool.
I just felt like throwing in a couple more cloud pictures. Ones that I decided not to add yesterday, but that I like nevertheless.
Both are a couple of my shameless shots from Number Two Daughter's hospital room a few weeks ago.
