Freddie Prinze Jr. appeared in the hit Fox show, ‘24′ back in 2010- and the experience left a very sour taste in the She’s All That star’s mouth. Apparently the star of the show, Kiefer Sutherland, rubbed Prinze Jr. the wrong way- so much so that he considered quitting acting altogether! He relayed to ABC News:
“I did ’24,’ it was terrible. I hated every moment of it,” Prinze 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.”
Among other things- Prinze Jr. resented having to take his shoes off while filming so he didn’t tower over Sutherland quite as much. Which is kind of funny if you think of it. So many actors are so much shorter in real life than you’d expect. It probably would have been easier just to put lifts in Sutherland’s shoes.
Kiefer Sutherland’s rep and Fox have both responded:
Keifer’s rep tells TMZ, “Kiefer worked with Freddie Prinze, Jr. more than 5 years ago, and this is the first he has heard of Freddie’s grievances.” The rep adds, “Kiefer enjoyed working with Freddie and wishes him the best.”
A Fox official tells TMZ … Kiefer was “nothing but professional during the run of the show and is beloved by cast and crew.” The honcho adds, “It’s so out of left field, 5 years later.”
Prinze Jr. has had an ongoing arc on the show Bones, and will be appearing in a new TV series this Fall on Disney Channel, Star Wars Rebels.
