Actor Jason Patric Keeps Father's Ashes With Him On Stage!
Jason Patric stays close to his late father by keeping the playwright's ashes on stage with him while he stars in a new production of his dad's most famous work. The actor is currently appearing in a Broadway revival of That Championship Season, written by his late father Jason Miller, opposite Kiefer Sutherland and Chris Noth.
Patric admits he has an unusual way of retaining a link to his father, who died in 2001, while he tackles the emotional task of acting in the play - he keeps his ashes on stage during performances.
He tells the Los Angeles Times, "I do have his ashes up there. I thought the old man should be up there with us. I feel in some ways, when I'm doing this, I'm in communion with him, opening up to that vulnerability, that wound."
A spokesperson for the show adds to the New York Post, "The ashes of Jason Miller are kept in an urn onstage in a bookcase. They have never been sprinkled on stage. They are kept in the urn." (LR/LT&WNWCPS/ZN)
