Freddie Prinze Jr. Says He Almost Quit Acting All Together Because Kiefer Sutherland Was Mean To Him On The Set Of 24

(Source) Freddie Prinze Jr. almost threw in the acting towel after working with the “most unprofessional dude in the world,” Kiefer Sutherland. “I did ’24,’ it was terrible,” the 38-year-old actor told ABC News about his experience on the hit Fox series in 2010. “I hated every moment of it.” The unpleasant experience was largely due to co-starring with Sutherland.

“Kiefer was the most unprofessional dude in the world,” Prinze said. “That’s not me talking trash, I’d say it to his face. I think everyone that’s worked with him has said that.” His short-lived stint on the show left a lasting impact — one that almost caused him to leave showbiz for good. “I just wanted to quit the business after that,” he confessed. “So, I just sort of stopped.”

What he found by jumping off the acting ship was that he was bound to work with the Sutherlands of the world no matter what industry he chose. “I went and worked for Vince McMahon at the WWE for Christ’s sake,” he revealed. “It was a crazier job than working with Kiefer.” Still, Prinze’s experience in the wrestling world was easier to handle than his time on the small screen alongside the 47-year-old thespian. “At least he was cool and tall,” he quipped about McMahon, adding, “I didn’t have to take my shoes off to do scenes with him, which they made me do (with Sutherland). “Just put the guy on an apple box or don’t hire me next time,” he continued. “You know I’m 6 feet and he’s 5’4″.”

 

 

 

Holy shit, how big of a pussy is Freddie Prinze Jr.? Wahhh my job was hard and the STAR of the show wasn’t super nice to me when we worked together. Seriously dude? It’s Hollywood. I’ve never even come close to knowing someone who works in Hollywood and I know it’s a cutthroat world where everyone is a douche bag. What are you new? Of course Kiefer Sutherland was a dick. He’s Jack Bauer, you’re a little shithead piece of the story that no one cares about. What did you expect him to be your best friend and constantly tell you how awesome you are at acting? You want a cookie for remembering your lines? You want a sticker for making a good angry face on screen? Get the fuck out of here. Who even are you? You’re no one that’s who. Kiefer Sutherland wouldn’t even know your name if he saw you on the street and that’s exactly how it should be.

 

 

PS

Making everyone take off their shoes because you’re so short is such an awesome move. That’s the official “Ive made it” for a short guy. Can’t hold anymore power than making people physically get smaller in your presence.
