Former 24 star Kiefer Sutherland says he will not return to the show ‘in any way’

kiefer sutherland will definitely not return to 24 in any way
Longtime 24 star Kiefer Sutherland will not “return in any way” to the hit TV show’s current reboot. From 2001 to 2010, Sutherland was best-known by many as the counter-terrorism agent  Jack Bauer. While the 48 year-old actor returned to the show last year in its spin-off series, 24: Live Another Dayhe told the BBC that his reign on the show — even for cameos — is over. “It’s one of the greatest gifts I’ve ever been given as an actor,” said Sutherland, “but it’s moving on without me, I want to do other things.”

Sutherland began his acting career two decades earlier, appearing in several iconic films in the ‘80s and ‘90s, but starring in 24 took his career to the next level while the actor was in a bit of a cool period.”There are some movies I’ve made people might have enjoyed, but there were nine of them watching,” he said. “And so 24 was so refreshing — the most significant thing was that it was accessible to a lot of people and to know they enjoyed it was so rewarding for me.”

The actor doesn’t yet have any publicly confirmed TV roles, but don’t think that he’s done with the small screen. “I want to do more television,” he told BBC. “…I don’t think there’s a better medium than television out there at the moment. [I] think I want to do more of it and look for projects where I can repeat my experience.”

In the meantime, he’s promoting the recently-debuted western Forsaken which also stars his father, Donald. The film is Kiefer’s first western since the 90’s sequel Young Guns 2. He told the BBC he’s wanted to act alongside his father for 30 years. “Some fathers take their sons fishing to connect — I got to make a movie with my dad,” said Sutherland, “even if it was a little late in life.”
