The BBC reports Kiefer Sutherland has ruled out a return to his icon role as counter terrorism specialist and perpetual rogue agent Jack Bauer. His last run as the character was in 24: Live another Day which was set in England.
At the end of that episode Bauer voluntarily surrendered to his enemies to, perhaps, be tortured for the remainder of his existence. Now we will never know.
“24 is definitely over now for me.”
“It’s one of the greatest gifts I’ve ever been given as an actor,” Sutherland added, “but it’s moving on without me, I want to do other things.”
