Kiefer's Daughter Breaks Dad's 24 Rule

KIEFER SUTHERLAND's teenage daughter has been banned from being a production assistant on her dad's hit show 24 after she messed up a tense scene by yelling in the middle of it.

The actor's daughter SARAH was hired as a PA during a recent shoot, but after she upset her dad by breaking one of his golden rules, he decided that wasn't a job for her.

Sutherland says, "One of the only things that I'm very specific about on our show is that when we actually start to film it has to be absolutely quiet.

"We were working on the second floor of a soundstage and we had all the PAs on the first floor telling people when we were rolling to stop working, to stop walking, to stop talking etc.

"Halfway through a take, for whatever reason, this one PA didn't get the message clearly... and you hear, 'Rolling!' I went, 'Who the f**k... That was my daughter, right?'

"The whole crew finally started clapping because she was the only person who didn't get yelled at from me... We got her a different job."

Actors That Just Can't Stand The Sight of Each Other 4306634 News

Recently, Freddie Prinze Jr. revealed that he thought Kiefer Sutherland was ‘the most unprofessional’ person he’d ever worked with during his time on the hit show 24 in 2010. While promoting his new Disney XD series Star Wars Rebels at the San Diego Comic-Con, the 38-year-old explained that he took a hiatus from Hollywood as a result of his difficulty playing Cole Ortiz on 24.

It would seem, then, that actors are often a lot better at their profession than we give them credit for. While viewers watch scenes of love, tenderness, friendship and camaraderie, backstage, certain actors have all sorts of problems with each other.

Here’s a look at other stars who’ve dazzled onscreen but fought viciously off it.

Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling

It’s been ten years since The Notebook successfully hit the cinemas and director, Nick Cassavetes, seems to feel now is the time to reveal its backstage secrets. Speaking to VH-1, Cassavetes explained that, despite their chemistry onscreen and eventual romance off it, there was one point when Gosling wanted McAdams kicked off the set.

Cassavetes revealed: ‘He’s doing a scene with Rachel and he says, "Would you take her out of here and bring in another actress to read off camera with me?" I said, "What?" He says, "I can’t. I can’t do it with her. I’m just not getting anything from this."’

Fortunately, Gosling was able to put his troubles aside and audiences were gifted with one of the most iconic love stories of the 21st Century.

Lindsey Lohan and America Ferrera

It looks like Ugly Betty was ugly in name and ugly in nature when Lindsey Lohan arrived as a guest star on the set of the American drama in 2008. At the time Lohan was struggling with a personal life permanently splashed all over the news with reports of wild drunkenness abound.

Rumours circulated that she smoked on set and needed a huge entourage wherever she went but Lohan’s camp claimed Ferrera was the mean one.

Either way, these mean girls couldn’t patch things up for long, and Lohan’s cameo was cut short from six episodes to four.

Bill Murray and Lucy Liu

It seems Bill Murray didn’t think that all of Charlie’s Angels were very angelic when he appeared in the first film of the franchise. It was reported that there was a big argument between Murray, who played Bosley, and Liu when he questioned her ability to act on set and she responded in kind with a couple of angel-swinging fists.

Consequently, Murray refused to reprise his role in Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle and Bernie Mac was brought in as a replacement.

Kenny Baker and Anthony Daniels

As close as Star Wars characters R2-D2 and C-3PO may have been in the film, co-stars Baker and Daniels were anything but behind the scenes.

The pair, who worked together on the original 1977 George Lucas Star Wars, were not friendly and Baker says he has no regrets not forming a friendship with the British Daniels. Baker said: "Anthony doesn’t mix at all - he keeps himself to himself. He never wants to have a drink with any of us."

Fortunate that the two only ever had to interact on screen as their various robotic counterparts then.

Louis Lombardi, Kiefer Sutherland's '24' co-star, Slams Freddie Prinze Jr.'s Ruthless Diss 4306227 News

The recent feud Freddie Prinze Jr., started with Kiefer Sutherland has started to spread, and another star of the Fox hit show '24,' Louis Lombardi, couldn't help but join the affray, but it is very clear whose back he has got.

Louis Lombardi
Lombardi weighed in on the Freddie/Kiefer feud 

Freddie garnered a lot of attention when attending this past weekend's Comic-Con in San Diego for publically slamming Sutherland's work ethic when they acted together on series 8 of '24' in 2010, after explaining why he hasn't been seen in the public eye for quite some time.

The 38 year-old actor branded the Golden Globe winner "unprofessional" before stating, "I did 24. It was terrible. I hated every moment of it. 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. So, I just sort of stopped."

Freddie

But according to Lombardi, this couldn't be further from the truth.

"My experience with Kiefer was absolutely the opposite. He was one of the most professional actors I've ever worked with," he told Us Weekly. "He wanted the best out of everybody. I have nothing but great experiences with him. He's a gentleman."

"Maybe he was jealous, maybe Kiefer did something to him-who knows?" Lombardi added about Freddie. "But Kiefer's one of the most professional and most likable people! Kiefer is the most professional actor. I'm baffled about [that] kid's comments and baffled why he would say this years later! I'm all for Kiefer. I think he's a great dude and I have nothing but love for him. Everyone loves him, all the actors around him, the crew. Everyone!"

Kiefer Sutherland
This was the first time Kiefer had heard any criticism from Freddie

"I hope this doesn't turn into the Biggie and Tupac thing!" he then joked about the actor's feud. "I don't want to get gunned down in Santa Monica!"

Sutherland has since issued a very professional response to Freddie's diss, and expressed how he only had fond memories of their time together. "Kiefer worked with Freddie Prinze, Jr. more than five years ago, and this is the first he has heard of Freddie's grievances," Sutherland's rep said Monday afternoon (July 28th). "Kiefer enjoyed working with Freddie and wishes him the best."

Freddie Prinze Jr. Almost Quit The Business After Working With "24" Co-Star Kiefer Sutheland 4305456 News

Kiefer Sutherland recently received the worst kind of negative review – one from a fellow actor. Freddie Prinze Jr., who co-starred with Sutherland on the recently revived 24, recalls that his unpleasant on-set relationship with Sutherland almost caused the younger actor to leave the business for good.

 Freddie Prinze Jr.
FPJ has since found his footing, but he had a few rough years after 24.

"I did '24,' it was terrible," the 38-year-old actor told ABC News about his experience on the hit Fox series in 2010. "I hated every moment of it."

He continued: "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."

Prinze didn’t elaborate on the details of his experience, but he did hint that he was made to take his shoes off to make Sutherland seem taller, when the two were doing scenes together "Just put the guy on an apple box or don't hire me next time," he quipped. "You know I'm 6 feet and he's 5'4"."

More: Kiefer Sutherland Issues Professional Response To Freddie Prinze Jr.'s "Unprofessional" Criticism

Eventually, Prinze left 24 and spent some time away from acting. However, he was soon to find that there was no escape from temperamental co-workers "I went and worked for Vince McMahon at the WWE for Christ's sake," he revealed. "It was a crazier job than working with Kiefer."

On Tuesday, Sutherland issued a remarkably professional response, via his rep. The actor claimed that this was the first time he had heard Prinze's complaints and he wished his former co-star all the best. Hopefully this means peace can be restored in the land now.

Kiefer Sutherland Issues Professional Response To Freddie Prinze Jr.'s "Unprofessional" Criticism 4305235 News

Kiefer Sutherland doesn't seem like such a bad guy!

While at this weekend's Comic-Con in San Diego, Freddie Prinze Jr. offered a controversial explanation as to why he hasn't been seen in the public eye for quite some time, putting the blame on Sutherland.

Kiefer Sutherland
Sutherland responded in a very professional manner

The two actors co-starred in the eight series of Fox's '24' back in 2010, in which Sutherland played the lead role of Counter Terrorist Unit (CTU) agent Jack Bauer, but for Freddie this experience nearly made quit acting altogether because of the Fox show's star being "unprofessional."

These issues Freddie suddenly brought up stem from Sutherland allegedly appearing on the set of '24' drunk and making all the crew wait hours for him, TMZ reports.

However, Fox officials have also adamantly denied these claims by stating that Kiefer was "nothing but professional during the run of the show and is beloved by cast and crew. It's so out of left field, 5 years later." An executive at the television network also noted, "We wouldn't have done another '24' if Kiefer were anything like Freddie described," referring to the recent miniseries '24: Live Another Day.'

The House Of Magic 4297836 Videos 22nd July 2014

When Thunder is abandoned into the street by his owner as a kitten during a house move, he finds himself in the home of an eccentric aged magician named Lawrence and his family of friendly mechanical toys on a stormy night which gives him his name. Lawrence takes him on tour performing at parties but it soon becomes clear that he's much more popular than the magician's old pet rabbit, Jack - a fact that doesn't sit well with either Jack or the magician's mouse Maggie. However, the furry team must unite for the sake of Lawrence when trouble arises in the form of his nefarious nephew, who is attempting to sell the large house while Lawrence is away at hospital. Thunder and his new friends decide to try and convince him that the house is actually haunted, with Thunder at the forefront of the ploy. The question is, do Lawrence's unusual family have it in them to save his livelihood?

So '24' Is Basically Coming Back, on Fox 4295968 News

Jack Bauer is coming back. Basically. At the 2014 Summer TCA Press Tour on Sunday, Peter Price, chairman and CEO of Fox Networks Group was quizzed on whether '24' could return for a new season - and it sounds like pretty good news.

Rice said he's "always been a fan" of the show and said he thought the comeback "was fantastic." However, he confirmed that the network hasn't "had a specific conversation about it coming back yet. I'm sure we will in the future. It's a wonderful franchise.

"Kiefer, Evan [Katz], Howard [Gordon] and Manny [Coto] did a great job this year," he continued. "When you look at the show itself, I think it has many more stories to tell, but I think we need to sit down and talk to the creators about it."

Elsewhere, Rice spent time speaking about Bones, highlighting its importance on the Fox schedule and noting, "I hope this year's not the last year. It's a fantastic series."

Rice was pretty open about American Idol's struggles, saying, "If I have a criticism of the show for us last year, we haven't found in the last two years a group of kids who have captured the imagination of the public. They've been really talented kids, but for whatever reason, there hasn't been that catalyst behind the show."

Would you like see '24' back for a tenth season or is it time for Jack Bauer to head off into retirement?

Whoops: 'Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain' E3 Trailer Released, Then Taken Down 4236481 News

E3 kicks off imminently but Konami got their time zones mixed up - probably - and unleashed the trailer for their highly anticipated Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain early, sending the Internet into overdrive, and then back into… underdrive when they took it down quick-smart. Somewhere, someone is getting told off for this right now.

But the World Wide Web isn’t short of savvy users, so even though Konami plan on re-unleashing their all-action trailer shortly, there’s no end of information littered around various website. So here’s what you should know; here’s what we've seen, and what you’ll see later on.

We see Snake’s Diamond Dogs lying dead following an attack. We see him about to pour the ashes of his dead soldiers into the sea from Outer Heaven, but then we see him rub them on his face instead. We see tank battles and torture and Snake working his way through a seared village. We can see a vulture chewing away at human remains. 

We see Ocelot training some grunts. We see Skullface roaming Outer Heaven and Snake screaming into the sky in anger, covered in blood and surrounded by mass graves. It’s all very upbeat. "We'll make diamonds from their ashes, take them into battle with us," snarls Snake. "A shining light to our brothers in arms, even in death. We are Diamond Dogs."

The Phantom PainMetal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. Photo: Konami

Alright. Okay. So the trailer doesn’t feature any actual gameplay footage; we’re assuming that’ll come at E3, but it is a tasty morsel – nay, a first course – ahead of what could be Konami’s most anticipated game of all time. Stay tuned for more MGSV:TPP news here.

"24: Live Another Day" Recap: It's 3:00 PM And You Can Finally Catch Your Breath 4216127 News

It’s Hour 5 on 24 and this week, there was a lot less Jack Bauer to be seen for most of the episode. While it’s clear that Kiefer Sutherland is the show, episodes like this offer a nice glimpse of the ensemble cast, which has been consistently strong since the revival.

 

Kiefer Sutherland
Could the series continue without Kiefer Sutherland? It seems unlikely at this point.

On Monday night, 24 finally offered viewers some relief from the classic “only the hero knows what’s going on and how to stop it” situation.

Cross identified the proof that the drone had been hijacked, the message got passed all the way up the chain to President Heller, and for once in a very rare while on 24, every character in authority recognized what was actually happening and took steps to prevent it.

Sure, it may have taken away some of the dramatic tension, but for a distinctly Bauer-less episode, this was probably the best route the screenwriters could have taken.

Jack finally returned to the scene, but he wasn’t immediately sent into action – another plot point, which longtime fans will no doubt appreciate. Not just because it gives us time to soak in everything, but also because it means that this time, Jack will be used as a tactical weapon, instead of going on insane and highly questionable missions just for the sake of non stop action.

There was a great scene between Jack and Audrey, which we won’t spoil, but you should watch out for as one of the better character moments of 24’s current run. Interestingly enough, it looks like the shortened season has made the plot more concise and easy to digest, trimming the unnecessary details, instead of jamming the same plot into fewer episodes. It’s great to see that even in a shorter season, the writers are paying attention to the character dynamics as much as the Jack-Bauer-kills-people moments, which have become the show’s trademark.

For the first time in a while, Jack wasn't the centerpiece.

Cross identified the proof that the drone had been hijacked, the message got passed all the way up the chain to President Heller, and for once in a very rare while on 24, every character in authority recognized what was actually happening and took steps to prevent it.

Sure, it may have taken away some of the dramatic tension, but for a distinctly Bauer-less episode, this was probably the best route the screenwriters could have taken.

Jack finally returned to the scene, but he wasn’t immediately sent into action – another plot point, which longtime fans will no doubt appreciate. Not just because it gives us time to soak in everything, but also because it means that this time, Jack will be used as a tactical weapon, instead of going on insane and highly questionable missions just for the sake of non stop action.

There was a great scene between Jack and Audrey, which we won’t spoil, but you should watch out for as one of the better character moments of 24’s current run. Interestingly enough, it looks like the shortened season has made the plot more concise and easy to digest, trimming the unnecessary details, instead of jamming the same plot into fewer episodes. It’s great to see that even in a shorter season, the writers are paying attention to the character dynamics as much as the Jack-Bauer-kills-people moments, which have become the show’s trademark.

Jack is Back! But Could ’24’ Keep On Living After ‘Live Another Day’? 4181566 News

Jack Bauer came bounding back to our screens last night in ’24:Live Another Day’, but is the limited event series a final farewell to our hero? Maybe not, as co-creator Robert Cochran has been telling E! news that this might not be the end of Jack Bauer.

Kiefer SutherlandJack is back everyone!

Speaking at the show’s premiere, Cochran said that if ‘Live Another Day’ is successful we could expect to see more Bauer on our screens in the future.  "I think if this does well, I can't see any reason not to do another 12,” he told the news channel.

The show, which had ended in 2010, was originally going to be resurrected for a movie but when that idea fell through it was finally decided that Jack would come back home to the small screen once again.

Although the film idea never came to fruition, a movie could still be in Bauer’s future as Cochran stated it was still “possible.” However, he then added that the real time format of ’24’ lends itself to TV better saying, “I'll take whatever happens,” then adding, “but I'd like to see it come back on TV.”

Actress Mary Lynn Rajskub, who plays Chloe O’Brian on the show, also feels ’24' has more life left in it, saying, “I can't imagine that there wouldn't be a little bit more now that they've gone through the trouble of bringing it back."

As for star Kiefer Sutherland, he’s admitted he was “massively” nervous about reprising his role as Jack Bauer, revealing he spent months,”scared to death”, thinking “why would we open this up again.” The actor also added that he was yet to suffer an on-set injury this time around, escaping so far with “just a couple of cuts.”

Jack Bauer Ready To Kick Tail In One More Round Of "24" 4180928 News

Much like it’s protagonist, 24 just can’t be killed off. Jack Bauer returns tonight as your favorite (well, someone’s favorite) government agent tonight and we’re bound to get some adrenaline-filled action sequences, along with a few plain WTF moments in true 24 style. 24: Live Another Day is the appropriately titled revival of the original series, which ran between 2001 and 2010. The revival was originally intended to be a movie, but the idea never got green-lit and it seemed like Jack was out for good. Lo and behold, Fox picked up the show for a reunion season and after months of promotion, it premieres tonight, May 5 at 8PM.

"It was like seeing a friend who you thought you said goodbye to for forever come back," Executive Producer Howard Gordon said about 24’s return to E!News.

Old favorites like Kim Raver, Bill Devane and Mary Lynn Rajskub are all on the returning cast – thank goodness, because one Kiefer Sutherland does not a 24 make.

"Yeah, it's totally bizarre," Rajskub said about returning to TV as Chloe O' Brian. "This is something that happens once in a lifetime that I'm even on a show like this that's so successful. I never thought this was going to happen."

The show might have gotten slightly tired during the final years, but it did earn Sutherland a Golden Globe and an Emmy for his work. The question now is, four years later, who will be left to watch?
