Jack Bauer, or Kiefer Sutherland (whatever you prefer), is a man who likes to party and have a good time. And with “24″ over, Bauer is going to have a lot more free time on his hands to have a good time.
PerezHilton reports that Sutherland was at a New York City bar getting so drunk, he started taking off his shirt.
A source says “Kiefer got so drunk, he took off his shirt and tried to take the pictures off the wall at the bar. He eventually calmed down and was not asked to leave the hotel.”
Granted it may have not been the most respectful thing to do, but with all that “24″ money, let the man have a good time!
Unfortunately a little too loose it turns out. The “24″ star was thrown out of a strip club last night in London, reports TMZ. According to the website, Sutherland was acting crazy – dancing and shouting, at the Stringfellows “lapdance club.”
After getting into an altercation with someone at the club, bouncers threw a shirtless Sutherland out of the club.
On its website, Stringfellows says security wasn’t grabbing Kiefer — merely “helping him into his car.”
EW.com reports that Kiefer Sutherland said that “24″ will not be moving to NBC, despite earlier talks. Sutherland and executive producer Howard Gordon decided it was time to end the TV run.
“The writers are producing the equivalent of 12 films a year, which is unheard of, and Howard felt to do a ninth would be potentially damaging,” said Sutherland. “We both felt strongly that there has been a demand and an interest in a 24 film, which would be a two-hour representation of a 24-hour day, so we felt it was time to move in that direction.”
Sutherland promises that the finale for the “24″ will queue up the movie that is currently in the works. “We wanted to create a definitive end for Jack Bauer,” explains Sutherland. “Since we do have the intention to make the feature film, it would lead into that and certainly set that up.”
“24″ is a extremely expensive show to produce, as you can probably tell with the weekly massive explosions, car chases, etc. Entertainment Weekly is reporting that although Fox is at its end with “24″, the show may have a glimpse of hope with NBC.
Apparently the producers of “24″, 20th Century Fox, have approached NBC about picking up the series. And although ratings are stagnant and the show costs a fortune to produce, NBC is apparently seriously considering the offer.
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.
Kiefer Sutherland, who plays Jack Bauer on Fox drama 24, made an appearance at Comic-Con in San Diego Friday, reports TMZ. He discussed the future of the show, which takes place in real time.
“I don’t know with regards to ‘the last season’ or anything, I really don’t,” Sutherland told reports after the 24 panel Friday. It is the last season that I’ve been contracted to do 24, but I really don’t know. We’re so focused on making season eight. But obviously the requirements would be that the writers felt that they could really bang it out. If Howard [Gordon] came to me and said, ‘The way I saw those last scenes play, I have an idea for season nine that would be unbelievable,” I would have to listen to him for that. I think we’re all very aware of wanting to protect what we believe is a very strong and important legacy that is 24. All of those things. Again, the choices to do or not to do it have nothing to do with my contract, have everything to do with whether or not an audience still wants to watch it and cares and whether or not we feel we have something to offer.”
Kiefer Sutherland’s Jack Bauer is getting a new ally (or foe – it’s hard to tell with the show) in the form of Freddie Prinze Jr.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Prinze has been cast in the upcoming eighth season of the real-time drama as a regular, playing a recently returned Marine named Davis Cole.
Cole now heads the field ops unit of the revived CTU in New York – and he’s also a big fan of Bauer’s, aspiring to follow in the footsteps of the butt-kicking counterterrorism agent.
Kiefer Sutherland and the alleged victim of a headbutting incident have resolved their differences, clearing the way for an assault charge against the actor to be dismissed.
Sutherland apologized to fashion designer Jack McCollough, who had claimed the 24 star broke his nose in a scuffle at a New York nightclub May 5.
“I am sorry about what happened that night and sincerely regret that Mr. McCollough was injured,” Sutherland said in a joint statement, according to PEOPLE. McCollough said in the statement: “I appreciate Mr. Sutherland’s statement and wish him well.”
Bollywood star Anil Kapoor is making the leap to North American television.
The actor, who gained worldwide recognition as the game show host in last year’s Oscar-winning film “Slumdog Millionaire,” has joined the cast of Fox’s “24″ for its upcoming eighth season.
As a series regular, Kapoor will play a Middle Eastern leader who comes to the U.S. on a peacemaking mission. The role is the actor’s first American TV gig.
Get ready for another Very Bad Day, Jack Bauer.
The hit counterterrorism drama “24″ and its beleaguered agent are returning for an eighth season, star and executive producer Kiefer Sutherland told the Associated Press Tuesday.
The Fox action series will begin shooting its new season in May, around the same time its current seventh season ends.
Kiefer Sutherland might wed girlfriend Siobhan Bonnouvrier, reports Perez Hilton.
If the rumours are true, this marriage will not be the first for the “24” star, but the third nuptials for the actor.
Sutherland was first married to Camelia Kath in 1987, with whom he has a daughter. The couple divorced three years later. In 1996, Sutherland married Kelly Winn but the pair separated in 1999 and filed for divorce in 2004.
According to Perez, a friend of Sutherland says: “Now that Kiefer is finally divorced, everyone is hoping he will marry Siobhan. Kiefer is a changed man and Siobhan is just the right woman for him. She is an amazing woman and has transformed Kiefer in just a few short weeks.”
He was just granted a divorce last month, but could Kiefer Sutherland already be ready to tie the knot again?
According to CelebEdge, Sutherland is very close to making that commitment to his new girlfriend, Siobhan Bonnouvrier.
“Now that Kiefer is finally divorced, everyone is hoping he will marry Siobhan,” a friend of Sutherland’s gushed. “Kiefer is a changed man and Siobhan is just the right woman for him. She is an amazing woman and has transformed Kiefer in just a few short weeks.”
Even though Sutherland recently spent some time in jail, the source claimed that Bonnouvrier “isn’t the least bit bothered by his fame or wild past and the relationship has blossomed. They are both looking for long-term commitment so they are on the same page in terms of relationship goals.
“Everyone is hoping Kiefer finally settles down and find happiness with her. You can tell just by looking at them they are madly in love.”
Who knew that Kiefer Sutherland has been married this whole time?
The Canadian and his former model ex, Elizabeth Kelly Winn, filed for divorce almost four years ago. The couple separated five years before that.
The divorce was made official on May 16, according to E!Online. Irreconcilable differences was listed as the reason for the split.
This makes two for Sutherland, who was previously married to actress Camelia Kath. He is currently dating a woman named Tricia Cardozo, and has also dated “24″ co-star Reiko Aylesworth.
For all of you “24″ fans who think that good old Jack Bauer can do no wrong, please consider yourselves corrected.
Actor Kiefer Sutherland has begun his 48 day sentence for a DUI charge that he received back in October. Canadian born Sutherland does not only star in the show “24″, but also in commercials, specifically as the chief voice behind the Ford Motor Company of Canada commercials.
After word of his 48 day sentence was released, the motor company began feeling pressure from M.A.D.D., also known as Mothers Against Drunk Driving, to drop the “24″ star from their campaign.
“Obviously as a company they’re against drunk driving, so why are they continuing to have somebody speak on behalf of their products that now has been convicted of impaired driving?” Andrew Murie, CEO of M.A.D.D. Canada told CTV News.
“Literally, there’s thousands of people out there that meet the moral standards of our society today that would love to have that kind of endorsement contract and they should be honoured for their ethical behaviour,” he urged.
Although no decision has been announced from Ford, a spokesperson from the company assured M.A.D.D. and the media that the situation is being closely monitored, however Sutherland will remain the voice of the commercials until further notification.
Kiefer Sutherland surrendered to the law yesterday and began his jail sentence of 48 days.
Sutherland is now an inmate of the Glendale City Jail. He surrendered at 5:30 p.m. and was booked 16 minutes later. According to TMZ, his booking records list him as “5’10″, 150 lbs, blue eyes, blond hair, 40 years old.”
Because “24″ has been cancelled for the season due to the WGA strike, Sutherland was able to start his DUI sentence early. He was originally slated to surrender on December 21, his 41st birthday.
Sutherland will have his own jail cell, but only because he is a long-term inmate, not because of his celebrity status. However, he will have to wear the traditional orange jumpsuit.
Kiefer Sutherland pleaded guilty on Tuesday after he was arrested for driving under the influence.
As part of his plea deal, Sutherland will serve 30 days for this DUI, his fourth, and 18 days for violating probation on his 2004 DUI arrest.
“I’m very disappointed in myself for the poor judgment I exhibited recently,” Sutherland said in a statement, “and I’m deeply sorry for the disappointment and distress this has caused my family, friends and co-workers at ’24′ and at 20th Century Fox.”
Sutherland will start his service on December 21, while the show is on hiatus. He was also ordered to enroll in an 18-month alcohol education program and attend weekly alcohol therapy classes for six months.
Jack Bauer may be going to jail.
TMZ.com is reporting that Kiefer Sutherland was arrested in West Hollywood last night after attending the Fox Fall Eco-Casino party at Area nightclub. He was pulled over for making an illegal U-turn. Sutherland, 40, allegedly blew more than twice the legal limit of 0.08 blood alcohol level.
Sutherland was also arrested for DUI in 2004. If he is convicted this time, by California law he will serve at least five days in jail.
According to sources, Sutherland was “cooperative and mellow” throughout the process. He was booked at 4:09 a.m. and released at 5:42 a.m. on $25,000 bail.
24 fans rejoice! Not only will Jack Bauer (Canadian Kiefer Sutherland) officially be returning to television on January 13, but Tony Almeida will be by his side once again.
Though Tony (Carlos Bernard) presumably died due to injuries from the terrorist car bombing that killed his wife, Michelle, the writers did leave a small hint at his survival.
A customary tribute to deceased characters is for the famous digital clock to tick silently after the last appearance of the departed. Tony did not receive such a farewell, despite being one of the show’s most beloved and trusted characters.
Tony’s resurrection isn’t the only surprise in store for our hero Jack. Season 7 will find CTU disbanded, and all the edge-of-your-seat action moved from Los Angeles to Washington.
Fan faves Chloe O’Brian and Bill Buchanon (Mary Lynn Rajskub and James Morrison) are the only other known returning cast members. Newcomers this season include Cherry Jones, Janeane Garofalo, Colm Feore, Annie Wersching, Jeffrey Nordling, John Billingsley and Rhys Coiro.
Be sure to tune into the 4-hour season premiere event in January, on Sunday 13 and Monday 14.
Kiefer Sutherland may steal the title of “Sexiest Older Actor” from George Clooney yet. Sutherland, who stars as government agent Jack Bauer on the Emmy award-nominated series “24″ not only saves the world one season at a time – he’s a rodeo champion in real life.
In an interview that appears in the January/February issue of Men’s Vogue magazine, Sutherland reveals that he has a way with horses. “What I lacked as a roper and a cowboy I could make up for in horses,” he is quoted as saying. “Roping is one of those sports like polo where you get infinitely better the better your horses are. I had some great horses.”
Sutherland, 40, first picked up horseback riding while filming the 1994 feature film “The Cowboy Way.” He went on to become a repeat winner of the national team roping competition when he found some off time away from movies in 1998.
“Those two years on the ranch were my college years. Three or four guys riding around in a truck from rodeo to rodeo. It was fantastic,” Sutherland said in the new issue of the magazine, which appears on newsstands on Tuesday.
Sutherland also talked about relationships – like Clooney, he was previously married but is now a bachelor. He told Vogue it was difficult to see someone given his busy schedule on the set of “24.”
“When you have five 16-hour days back to back, though, it is tough to tell someone, `The only way you can spend time with me is to live with me.’ It’s certainly a weird question to ask on a first date,” he said.
The sixth season of “24″ premieres Jan. 14 on Fox.
“24″ took home two of the biggest awards of the night last night at the 58th Annual Prime Time Emmy Awards.
Canadian Kiefer Sutherland took home best actor in a drama, while the show was named best dramatic program.
