Kiefer Sutherland ‘terrified’ about reviving Jack Bauer
Jack Bauer is coming back – Fox is rebooting the conspiracy, real-time thriller series 24 for a 12-episode TV “event,” starting in May. And Kiefer Sutherland, who played the intense, sometimes sadistic counter terrorism agent Jack, says he’s nervous about it.
“It was nine years I spent doing this [character]. And I’m terrified going back to it,” Sutherland said here at the TV Critics Winter Press Tour. “I used to be terrified between seasons, actually. Without patting ourselves on the back, we made eight seasons of great TV. To open it up again and possibly failing to make great TV, is frightening. Don’t want to disappoint a very loyal audience. I’m about as anxious and wound-up as I’ve been in a long time.”
