Freddie Prinze, Jr.: Working with Kiefer Sutherland Made Me Want to Quit Acting
By Antoinette Bueno
Tell us how you really feel, Freddie Prinze, Jr.!
The She's All That star was at Comic-Con over the weekend to promote his new Disney XD series Star Wars Rebels, when he decided to get candid on what it was like working with Kiefer Sutherland on his hit show 24 in 2010.
"I did 24, it was terrible. I hated every moment of it," he surprisingly told ABC News. "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."
"I went and worked for Vince McMahon at the WWE for Christ's sake and it was a crazier job than working with Kiefer," he added. "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. Like, 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. What do you want me to do?"
Prinze, Jr. said working with Sutherland was so awful that he wanted to quit acting.
"I just wanted to quit the business after that. So, I just sort of stopped," he said about taking a break from the spotlight.
Interestingly enough, Sutherland, 47, was also at Comic-Con over the weekend promoting 24: Live Another Day.
