Latest in a very long-running series
Yesterday’s New York Times featured this heartfelt full-page ad from a Dad to his daughters.
Sweet guy, yeah?
Then again, tucked away at bottom left, there’s the link to his website.
Turns out that Dad is Kurt Sutter, whose IMDb bio details “the shit” he does.
Raised in the shadow of Rahway prison, Sutter spent most of his New Jersey childhood indoors, away from people, three feet from a TV screen. That’s where he learned the essentials of storytelling and the comic significance of anvils . . .
In 2001, he landed a gig on FX’s The Shield (2002). Starting as a staff writer, he stayed on “The Shield” its entire seven season run, finishing up the last two seasons as Executive Producer.
Kurt continues his relationship with FX, with his new critically-acclaimed series, Sons of Anarchy (2008). Along with his TV work, Sutter has feature projects in development at Warner Brothers and Paramount.
Along with some other stuff, of course. (WTF Sutter is also fun.)
The ad also appeared in the Chicago Tribune and the Los Angeles Times, which means Sutter dropped a pretty penny to address his two girls. Belle Zwerdling – the manager of Sutter’s wife, “Sons of Anarchy” star Katey Sagal – told the Tribune’s John Keilman that the ad is “a thoughtful, insightful love letter to his daughters — a love letter that was written because of the climate of the world.”
Another costly attempt at climate change, eh?
