“Duck Dynasty” is the latest reality TV craze to sweep the nation, and many prestigious people consider themselves fans. Even Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia is a viewer because the A&E show’s content aligns with his personal interests.
In a lengthy interview with New York Magazine, Scalia discusses his interest in “Duck Dynasty.” He admits he watched an episode of the show because “I’m a hunter. I use duck calls,” though he doesn’t watch the series regularly.
“So many people said ‘Oh, it’s a great show’ that I thought I’d better look at it,” he says. Scalia credits his interest in hunting to his grandfather, who used to take him into the woods of Long Island to shoot rabbits.
But Scalia’s true television love isn’t “Duck Dynasty;” it’s “Seinfeld.” “I loved ‘Seinfeld,'” he admits. “In fact, I got some CDs of ‘Seinfeld.’ ‘Seinfeld’ was hilarious. Oh, boy. The Nazi soup kitchen? No soup for you!”
Scalia isn’t the only celebrity fan of “Duck Dynasty.” Other notable viewers range from “The Walking Dead’s” Andrew Lincoln to Dakota Fanning.
