Freddie Prinze Jr reveals he hated working on 24 and calls Kiefer Sutherland unprofessional

Freddie Prinze Jr has revealed that he hated his time on 24.

The actor, who played Cole Ortiz during the real-time drama’s eighth season, revealed he “hated every moment” of his time on the show, and described Kiefer Sutherland as “unprofessional”.

Speaking to ABC News at San Diego Comic-Con, Freddie spoke about his time on the show.

“I did 24, it was terrible. I hated every moment of it. I just wanted to quit the business after that. So, I just sort of stopped,” he said.

“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.”

Prinze Jr added that he was told to take off his shoes to film scenes with Sutherland, because of his height.

“I went and worked for Vince McMahon at the WWE, for Christ’s sake,” he explained, “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 [at 24].

“Just put the guy on an apple box or don’t hire me next time. You know I’m 6 feet and he’s 5’4.”

Prinze Jr attended Comic-Con to promote his new Disney XD series Star Wars Rebels, while the cast and crew of 24 also made an appearance following the conclusion of the Live Another Day event series.
