I’ve added over 50 high quality photos of Kiefer from yesterday filming 24: Live Another Day in London! A huge thanks to Laura for the photos 🙂 I hope you all enjoy and be sure to check back for more set photos as they continue shooting! I for one cannot wait until Jack Bauer is on my TV again!

Kiefer Sutherland, Will Wait You Out

Kiefer Sutherland may have tabled his mission to bring 24 to the big screen, but he’s never, ever going to give it up for good. “I stopped pushing for that,” he told me over bar snacks last week in Pasadena, where the actor had come to promote Fox’s upcoming series resurrection of relentlessly sleep-deprived federal agent Jack Bauer. “I just got so tired of saying it was going to happen because someone told me it was going to happen — and then I’d find out that they had no intention of doing it.” But as he prepared to fly to London to begin production on 24: Live Another Day, the twelve-episode season that arrives May 5, he sounded pretty bummed discussing the aborted film when Vulture brought up the subject. “It’s not like it’s my property,” Sutherland continued slowly. “I can’t go, ‘Okay, fine. You don’t want to make it? I’ll go to Universal. They’ll make it.’ It’s kind of locked where it is.” The 47-year-old actor exhaled again and looked out the window, and then he smiled. “But people come and go,” he said, “I can wait it out. It can always happen.”

While he waits patiently for naysaying movie execs to rise and fall, Sutherland will have to settle for Jack merely returning to TV after a four-year break. Not that he’s been in need of work: Since the show wrapped in 2010, Sutherland has done lots of high-profile stuff, including Lars von Trier’s Melancholia, Fox’s Touch, Broadway’s The Championship Season, and the Kit Harrington gladiator drama Pompei (out next month). But his love for his tortured and torturing alter ego runs deep. “It’s almost mystical the way he loves and understands the character,” 24 executive producer Howard Gordon told me later, confirming what Sutherland had seen as a call to action when Gordon asked if he wanted to do more counterterrorizing. Said Sutherland: “It was a five-minute conversation to end the show — Howard was exhausted, and I wasn’t doing it without him — and it was a five-minute conversation to bring it back.”

I asked Sutherland if he remembers the beginning of the show, how much smaller the stakes were then, and if it was possible to get back to something like that. During that first day, Jack was fighting bureaucracy and hiding an affair; eight seasons later, he’s tractor-flipping his enemies and breaking the necks of others between his legs. Not everyone was a fan of those final seasons where the action had been ratcheted up so high that most of it was implausible. Sutherland laughed, because he’s been working out for the past five months to avoid coming back as “Old Jack Bauer.” “As one gets older, you start to panic about these things,” he said. But to the point, he said, he does remember those early seasons quite fondly.

“Remember that episode in the first season when Jack was held up in that little construction shack because he can’t get outside? The whole episode, he’s in there. It was awesome,” he recalled. “Later on, Howard and I used to sit and drink and go, ‘I remember when it was small, man. When we were doing the drama, the stuff that made people feel.’ We’d lament over that, and by the end of it, we’d be like, ‘So, we’re gonna blow up that family, right?’ ‘Yeah. Probably. I can’t think of anything else to do.’ It made me laugh.”

“But just because we’re starting out big this time, it doesn’t mean that it can’t descend into something really intimate and heavy,” Sutherland continued. “The desire, especially this time, is to get back to that very personal first season.”

Kiefer Talks Pompeii Villain & Finally Acting with His Father

While Kiefer Sutherland was promoting the new 24: Live Another Day miniseries with the Television Critics Association, I asked him about the movies he filmed before returning to his trademark role of Jack Bauer. Sutherland shot the historical disaster movie Pompeii and the western Forsaken.

Pompeii of course tells the story of the famed city buried under a volcanic eruption. The film is an adventure story build around the eruption of Mount Vesuvius. “I play Senator Corvis, a Roman senator who goes to Pompeii to close a business deal and secure a wife,” Sutherland said. “Kit Harrington plays the character of Milo who is in love with the woman that I am going to take. My character’s kind of a fantastically not nice guy.”

Paul W.S. Anderson brings the spectacle of Mount Vesuvius to life. “It’s huge,” Sutherland said. “It’s been a long time since I’ve done something that had $100 million film. Paul Anderson is a phenomenal director and has kind of the most finite understanding of technological possibilities for film and 3D film of anyone I’ve ever seen. He is so current that literally in the course of the five months that we were making the film, things were changing and he was on top of that. So that gives you an unbelievable sense of security when you’re working with half a set, half a green screen and all of those other things that it’s going to look fantastic.”

Forsaken is the first time Sutherland has shared scenes with his real life father, Donald Sutherland in a movie. They had appeared separately in A Time to Kill. “It’s about a gun fighter who a terrible things happens,” Kiefer said. “In a gunfight he accidentally kills a child and decides it’s time for him to go home. When he gets home, he finds out that his mother has passed and he is now stuck in a house with a father that he is very estranged from.”

The Sutherlands were actually quite nervous about working together, and in fact playing father and son in Forsaken. “One of the sweetest things was I had called him the night before and I said, ‘I hope you have a great sleep, I’ll see you in the morning.’ There was a long beat and I said, ‘Just so you know, I’m really nervous.’ And he went, ‘Oh my God, thank God, me too.’ So we got to have that laugh and get that out of the way. He’s a craftsman. He has such a strong understanding of the material, writes such great backstory for his character and why his character is coming from the place that he is, such command over his voice and physicality, just all of it. I had to catch myself a lot of times because it was like going to school, and I found myself oh no, I’ve got to stop watching and actually have to partake in this though.”

Pompeii is out February 12 and Forsaken later this year.
