Sea­son 2 FOX (*125) 21:00

Sci-fi show Way­ward Pines (2015cur­rent) re­turns with a new cast for sea­son 2. Sea­son 1 was meant to be a lim­ited se­ries and used all of the info in the books it’s based on, but the de­mand called for a sea­son 2. Tak­ing the lead in the 10-episode in­stal­ment is Ja­son Pa­tric, who plays sur­geon Dr Theo Yedlin and he says that “Theo ques­tions the past, the present and has no idea what the fu­ture is”. As for Ja­son, we know a lot about his past and present…

Ja­son was born into the busi­ness. 1

The 50-year-old’s late dad Ja­son Miller played Fa­ther Kar­ras in iconic 1973 para­nor­mal movie The Ex­or­cist and his mom Linda played Cather­ine Spages in 1976 slasher flick Alice Sweet Alice. His late grand­dad Jackie Glea­son played Ralph Kram­den in com­edy se­ries The Hon­ey­moon­ers (1955-1956).

He dropped his sur­name be­cause 2

he didn’t want to get work based on his family name. He laughs that “grow­ing up, I was al­ways called Ja­son Pa­tric, es­pe­cially when I was bad”.

One of his best friends is fiery3

tem­pered Kiefer Sutherland (Jack Bauer in ac­tion show 24, 2001-2010). And that friend­ship could’ve been ru­ined be­cause Ja­son started dat­ing film star Ju­lia Roberts (Liz in Eat Pray Love, 2010) in 1991 af­ter Kiefer dumped her. While he jokes about it now, Ja­son re­veals that Kiefer wasn’t the one to worry about – pa­parazzi were! “I knew dat­ing Ju­lia would be trou­ble. I just didn’t know how much of an im­pact it would have on my pri­vacy!”

And it hasn’t got bet­ter: he split 4

from lawyer girl­friend Danielle Schreiber in 2012 af­ter 10 years and he had to take her to court to get vis­i­ta­tion rights to their son Gus (6) in 2014. NB! See more on p7.
