Kiefer Sutherland

… No Need for the Real Deal

Kiefer Sutherland plays POTUS on his TV show, but says he doesn’t need an actual President — like say, Barack Obama — to consult on it … he already has the next best thing. 

“Designated Survivor” — which stars Kiefer as the Prez — just jumped from ABC to Netflix, and you know Obama already has a production deal with the streaming service. So, we asked Kiefer at LAX if there’s any chance they’d hook up.

Believe it or not, he took a hard pass, but only because 44’s already had a huge impact on 2 seasons of ‘Designated.’ Turns out, one of Kiefer’s costars worked for the Obama administration. Check out the clip if you don’t know which one.

As for how season 3 on Netflix will be different — he gives one hint: they aim to please.
