It's not really a secret that Kiefer Sutherland is kind of a jerk. He allegedly cheated on Julia Roberts, he head-butted a fashion designer in 2009, he's the definition of absurd in those Jose Cuervo ads, and now we can add this to the list — he almost made Freddie Prinze Jr. quit acting.
The She's All That star, who shared the screen with Sutherland in season eight of 24, went off on him in an interview with ABC News.
"I did 24, it was terrible," Prinze Jr. said. "I hated every moment of it. 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's that worked with him has said that. I just wanted to quit the business after that. So, I just sort of stopped."
This is how bad working with Sutherland was for Prinze Jr.—he actually preferred working with the WWE's Vince McMahon. Although maybe that's because the height disparity was more manageable. "I went and worked for Vince McMahon at the WWE for Christ's sake and it was a crazier job than working with Kiefer," Prinze Jr. said. "But, at least he was cool and tall. I didn't have to take my shoes off to do scenes with him, which they made me do. Just put the guy on an apple box or don't hire me next time."
Shots. Fired. You gonna take that, Jack Bauer?
