Fox's "24" Co-Star Says Working with Kiefer Sutherland was "Terrible"

Fox Network's '24' co-star says working with Kiefer Sutherland was a nightmare.

According to a recent report from ABC News, actor Freddie Prinze Jr. said he almost quit acting over the "24" star's "unprofessional" behavior. "I did '24,' it was terrible. I hated every moment of it," Prinze revealed to an ABC News reporter. "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." The actor appeared alongside Sutherland in "24" as Cole Ortiz in 2010. The experience was so bad, that he he nearly wanted to quit. "I just wanted to quit the business after that. So, I just sort of stopped."

"We have some great actors joining us — Mykelti Williamson is the head of CTU, Freddie Prinze Jr. is playing my partner," Sutherland said in an interview with Parade of season 8. "So, it's this great balance between something that’s new and what fans will find familiar."

Freddie Prinze Jr was extremely popular in the 1990's with hit movies such as "She's All That" and "I Know What You Did Last Summer". Since then he has guest starred on several television series.
