the ruthless con man (actor Kevin Tighe) on "Lost." TV dad M.O.: Push your son out an 8th floor window, paralyze the poor bastard and then show up on the island wanting to abscond with his kidney.
Although he's not technically a movie dad, because LOST isn't a movie (not yet, anyway), the description of the horribly wicked character is spot-on. I've always referred to Anthony Cooper as a "heartless SOB" and I don't regret it. I'm quite thankful my parents aren't like him - or anyone else in the list of worst Hollywood parents, for that matter.
