Is Ronan Farrow’s Father Really Frank Sinatra?

Movies & TV

Newly minted MSNBC host Ronan Farrow was asked a question that prompted an interesting response.

The 25-year-old television host recently sat down for his first interview since joining MSNBC and he was, of course, asked about his paternity. When The Hollywood Reporter’s Marisa Guthrie asked whether the headlines generated by that paternity question are a distraction, Farrow clapped back with a question of his own: “Don’t you feel like a quality journalist right now?”

The as-yet unnamed program, which is set to debut in January 2014, finds Mia Farrow’s baby boy the one asking the questions. His influence is so palpable right now that when he penned a snarky tweet, he generated over 9,500 retweets, which found him responding to his mother’s remark that he might be the child of legendary crooner Frank Sinatra—and not famed actor/director Woody Allen.

“Listen, we’re all *possibly* Frank Sinatra’s son,” he sent out to his legion of followers.

With Farrow as MSNBC’s newest personality, you can guarantee that he will be a high-profile distraction, but will he be an asset to viewers?

We will find out in the next year. In the meantime, Ronan will appear on other shows on the network.
