Jack Bauer Unprofessional? I Won’t Believe It

“But there’s a.. there’s a bomb in that whiskey. Someone has to drink it.”
“Sir, that’s a parking meter.”
Then how did it know my name?!”

Because voicing a character on a Star Wars cartoon has filled him with unbridled hubris, Freddie Prinze Jr. went off on Kiefer Sutherland during a Comic-Con interview to promote Star Wars: Rebels. Apparently, his experience on the set of 24 made him want to quit acting altogether, or at least do the closest thing to that and write for the WWE. ABC News reports:

“I did ’24,’ it was terrible. I hated every moment of it,” Prinze said. “Kiefer was the most unprofessional dude in the world. That’s not me talking trash, I’d say it to his face, I think everyone that’s worked with him has said that.”
He continued, “I just wanted to quit the business after that. So, I just sort of stopped.” …
”I went and worked for Vince McMahon at the WWE for Christ’s sake and it was a crazier job than working with Kiefer,” he said. “But, at least he was cool and tall. I didn’t have to take my shoes off to do scenes with him, which they made me do. Just put the guy on an apple box or don’t hire me next time. You know I’m 6 feet and he’s 5’4.”

Of course, all of this makes perfect sense because I’m not sure if you know this about Kiefer Sutherland, but he likes to have a drink every now and then. Which I probably shouldn’t be telling you that because it’s kind of a big secret, so don’t go blabbing about it to all your friends, alright? Keep it under you hat. As for the massive television network that currently employs Kiefer? They have no idea what Freddie Prinze Jr.’s talking about. TMZ reports:

A Fox official tells TMZ … Kiefer was “nothing but professional during the run of the show and is beloved by cast and crew.” The honcho adds, “It’s so out of left field, 5 years later.”
The official goes on, “We wouldn’t have done another ’24’ if Kiefer were anything like Freddie described.”

“Seriously, think about it. We’re not just going to put some reckless drunk on TV just to make money hand over fist. Who even does that? That’s crazy talk. Now watch Anger Management Thursdays at 9:30. Only on FX.”
