Kiefer Sutherland: Daughter's Acting Made My Dad Cry (Video)

Also on the late-night shows Jimmy Fallon played "Celebrity Photobomb" with Cameron Diaz, and Jimmy Kimmel welcomed Veep star Tony Hale to discuss British curse words.

Kiefer Sutherland's daughter has taken up the family business, with a role on HBO's Veep as the daughter of Julia Louis-Dreyfus' character. Just how good is her work? Good enough to make grandfather Donald Sutherland cry.

On The Late Show, Kiefer Sutherland told David Letterman he discovered his father crying in a restaurant after going to see Sarah Sutherland's one-woman play in New York.

"He was crying. I said, 'It's really moving, wasn't it? And he said 'No, we're in trouble.'"

After making the now-obligatory joke about Donald Sterling, saying that if Oprah bought the Clippers "it could be a little annoying when the player introductions take three hours," Jimmy Fallon took viewers sight-seeing in New York.

Fallon and Cameron Diaz took a camera up to the "Top of the Rock" on Rockefeller Center where they snuck out behind people posing for what they thought was going to be on the Tonight Show website, for a segment he aptly called "Celebrity Photobomb."

Ironically, guest Sophia Bush confessed to have previously photobombed Fallon. "Before I knew what I was doing, I was leaping behind you in the air," she said of the spur of the moment attack. 

The Chicago P.D. star went on to reveal all the things she "hearts," including cheeseburgers and slumber parties.

Over on ABC, Jimmy Kimmel welcomed Veep star Tony Hale, who said that as the HBO comedy is written by "British folks -- they have a vast list of (cuss words). They called Jonah (played by Timothy Simons) human scaffolding and the largest single cell organism." 

Seth Meyers launched into a very enthusiastic game of "Fake or Florida" where lucky contestants won manatees if they got the answer correct to questions about weird news items.

He then welcomed Lucy Liu onto Late Night, who revealed that she will be live tweeting Thursday's episode of Elementary. "I think I've sent about 50 tweets … I am pretty new," she said, admitting that it is going to be harder than recently directing an episode. "It is going to be a mess!"
