Kiefer Sutherland suffered a health scare that postponed production of his hit series “24″. E! Online is reporting that “Jack Bauer” had a ruptured cyst earlier in the week that resulted in emergency surgery.
“While Kiefer Sutherland is frustrated to miss even one day of work, he and Fox decided together that it would be best to complete this minor elective procedure now as a precaution as opposed to six weeks from now when production wraps,” his representatives tells the LA Times.
Fox had a further statement saying “We are temporarily suspending production of 24 while our friend and colleague Kiefer Sutherland undergoes a medical procedure. We hope to resume production shortly and do not anticipate any disruption in the broadcast of this season’s episodes.”
