Michael Chiklis lamented recently one of the few downsides to playing Vic Mackey, the corrupt cop on the critically acclaimed television series The Shield. According to Michael, the show is so violent his children — Odessa, 8 and Autumn, 13 — are forbidden from viewing. That’s just one reason the award-winning actor says he was so excited to participate in the Fantastic Four film series, in which he portrays ‘The Thing.’

Despite that rule, Michael’s daughter Autumn plays his daughter on The Shield; Although it seems contradictory at first blush, Michael says Autumn is only allowed to view the scenes in which she is a part.
