Bush Asked Bernard For 24 Plot

24 star CARLOS BERNARD was shocked when he met GEORGE W. BUSH - because the former U.S. President is obsessed with the hit show.
Bernard's character Tony Almeida was apparently killed off during the drama's fifth season in 2006, but stunned fans when he returned two series later.
And the cliffhanger kept even the most powerful on tenterhooks - the then-President Bush was desperate to discover Almeida's fate when he bumped into Bernard.
The actor says, "He grabbed me at a baseball game in the U.S. A big guy came up to me and said, 'Excuse me, the President would like to speak with you.' I went over, and it was George W. Bush, and he said 'Hey Carlos, when are you coming out of that coma? All I can do is watch that show of yours. Are you coming back?' I was like, you don't have anything better to do?"

Lord, Carlos.... even the leader of the Free world needs a little down time.... Just ask Obama and Clinton... watching a show for an hour isn't going to make or break peace talks.

Yes, Carlos, I'm so sure that's what went through your mind at the time - not just something you made up for this interview to sound like one of the cool kids. Dork.

You know, most actors would be delighted to know a sitting President was so interested in their show. What arrogance! And TV and film stars wonder why the public is being so turned off to them? How about not crapping where you eat?

Gee, Tony, youre really hip dissing Pres Bush, just because youre in love with your home town guy Nobama! That must make you the cool kid on the 24 block today! Ooops, wait, youre not on that show anymore, right? Oh well, I guess both you AND Pres Bush arent working now, so you CAN watch 24 reruns with him! But then again, hes quite busy in his new career as a statesman, and you, well, can go back to your pre-24 profession of waiting tables! HEY, ALMEIDA, A TABLE HERE NEEDS MORE BUTTER! GET BACK TO WORK, BUSBOY BITCH!
