Kiefer Sutherland reminisces about ’24’ and is open for a comeback

Kiefer Sutherland still wants to return to ’24’.

The 54-year-old actor portrayed counter-terrorism agent Jack Bauer in nine seasons – which ran from 2001 to 2010 and returned for a limited series in 2014 – and is keen to reprise the role again, and doesn’t care whether that would be for a new TV show or in a movie, so long as there is a “great story” at the heart of it.

He said: “I’ve been banging my head against a brick wall for a movie for so long that I’ve got a concussion.

“Honestly, the form more ’24’ would take doesn’t matter to me as much as the quality of the story. If someone comes up with a great story that can be told in two hours, then we’re going to make a movie, but if someone comes up with a great story that could be ’24’ hours, we’ll do the show.”

While the show was a “gift” to Kiefer, he is wary of tarnishing its legacy by continuing with the role.

He added to Forbes magazine: “As an actor, 24 remains one of the most dynamic experiences I’ve ever had. Where a character was allowed to have such highs and lows in such a fast period of time is a gift.

“There are very few setups that will allow you to do that, and I find that incredibly fun, challenging, and exciting.

“There’s been nine seasons, and I think it rests in a credible place. The difficulty is you don’t ever want to do anything that is going to damage that.”

‘The Designated Survivor’ actor believes ’24’ is responsible for the revolution of the TV industry and the increased demand for high-quality dramas that audiences like to binge-watch

Sutherland plays Detective Clay Bryce in a new TV series called ‘The Fugitive’. The Detective who leads the hunt for Boyd Holbrook’s Mike Ferro, on the run after being wrongly suspected of a bombing on the LA subway who needs to prove his innocence.

It’s inspired by the original TV show from the 1960s and the Oscar-winning 1993 movie that starred Harrison Ford and Tommy Lee Jones.
