    Are Jack Bauer or the real-time format at the heart of 24? Fox brass are likely wrestling with that dilemma as they are weighing a possible new limited series installment of the popular franchise. That’s because the network has been pitched a followup to last summer’s 24: Live Another Day that may or may not feature 24 signature star Kiefer Sutherland. In the the idea, which comes from 24/24: Live Another Day executive producers Howard Gordon, Evan Katz and Manny Coto, “there is a point at which Jack Bauer could come in and fit organically into the story, or they...

    Freddie Prinze Jr. had such an awful experience acting opposite Kiefer Sutherland in 24 that he "wanted to quit the business," he said. The actor explained to ABC News that working with Sutherland was "terrible." "I did 24, and it was terrible. I hated every moment of it," Prinze said. "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."

    It has been almost four years since the final episode of 24 aired. 24: Live Another Day will be set in London and will begin airing in the US on May 5 and the UK two days later. The show will follow Jack attempting to stop the assassination of President James Heller while battling CIA agents tracking him, along with the help of Chloe ,who is now working underground with a high-profile hacker. Kiefer is nervous that the revival won’t live up to fans’ expectations and recently told the Daily Telegraph: ‘The fear of not having it fulfil all of...

    24: LIVE ANOTHER DAY is a thrilling new tent-pole event series which will restart the clock on the groundbreaking and Emmy Award-winning drama franchise starring Kiefer Sutherland. Produced by 20th Century Fox Television, Imagine Television and Howard Gordon’s Teakwood Lane Productions, 24: LIVE ANOTHER DAY will make its historic debut in the summer of 2014 on FOX. The high-octane saga reunites showrunner Howard Gordon with Sutherland and retains the real-time, fast-paced format with split screens and complex interweaving storylines, with 12 episodes representing 24 hours. The suspenseful event series once again follows the exploits of heroic agent JACK BAUER (Sutherland),...

    Fox is looking to restart the clock on 24. The network is looking to bring back the Emmy-winning real-time thriller as a limited series event, Deadline reports. No deals are in place in front of or behind the screen, but Kiefer Sutherland is said to be in early talks to reprise his role as Jack Bauer. Former 24 boss Howard Gordon, meanwhile, would likely oversee the revival, per Deadline. News of a possible 24 rebirth comes just hours after Fox pulled the plug on Sutherland’s Touch. Thoughts? Does this sound like the best or worst idea ever?

    Savage Arms has a history of producing good-shooting, affordable combination guns. Unlike many of the European combo guns that cost more than a new pickup truck, the Savage Model 24 that was built in the 1950s, 60s, and 70s provided shooters, campers, hunters, and survivalists with handy firearms that would fire both rifle and shotgun ammunition, at prices that most folks could afford. However, several variations of these discontinued Model 24 combination guns are now fetching princely sums of money, as most folks who have these guns are not willing to part with them.

    The movie based on the conspiracy-terrorism-action show was in pre-production and set to start shooting next month, but has now ground to a halt because Fox will greenlight a budget no higher than $30 million, while Sutherland and producer Brian Grazer feel the budget needs to be in the low $40s at its tightest. A Fox spokesman confirmed that the movie was on hold, and said it was related to timing.

    Kiefer Sutherland’s new Fox drama, “Touch” is on its way later this month, but it won’t keep the actor from making the “24” movie, set to begin production shortly. “The status on the movie — hopefully we will be shooting at the end of April, beginning of May,” the actor said on Sunday the FOX portion of the Television Critics Association Winter Session in Pasadena. (Snip) “The commitment to a television show, in the case of ’24,’ was eight years, so if you’re gonna do something potentially for another eight years, you want it to be something that you can

    Kiefer Sutherland will go where the action is in big-screen followup to hit series '24.' Nothing can stop Jack Bauer – not terrorists, and certainly not Hollywood development hell. The long-delayed “24” movie is set to start filming in the spring, once star Kiefer Sutherland becomes available in April, Deadline.com reported. Twentieth Century Fox has been eying a possible film franchise based on its television division hit since before the clock ran out on the show’s eighth and final season in 2010. Director Tony Scott once hovered around the project but has since dropped out. Intelligence reports indicate that the...

    An effort to "expose" climate change skeptics will instead show that Gore is a charlatan. Unfortunately for Al Gore, but fortunately for the rest of us, much of what we will hear in his 24 Hours of Reality extravaganza starting Wednesday evening is pure fantasy. Gore is completely wrong when he tells us that the science of climate change is settled. If his “Climate Reality Project” actually did promote climate realism, he would tell us that the science is in a period of negative discovery — the more we learn, the more we realize we do not understand about this,...

    Four years ago "24" actress Mary Lynn Rajskub was quoted as saying "I got into acting to avoid politics." Unlike most of her liberal colleagues, Miss Rajskub didn't discuss the subject and acted very accepting towards conservatives. The actress appeared on the Laura Ingraham Show and was photographed in Rush Limbaugh's studio. Everything changed the moment Rush Limbaugh planted an innocent tiny kiss on her at 2006 Heritage Foundation Panel discussing the show 24. Outrage was the reaction amongst her peers. Ex-boyfriend Duncan Trussell supposedly asked "when he kissed you did he suck out your soul and replace it with...

Surnow is putting together a miniseries about the Kennedy family that will air on the History Channel. Unfortunately, since Surnow is a conservative in Hollywood there have already been people bashing the project. Surnow responds to critics: “It’s not fair because they looked at early drafts of script that don’t even resemble the final draft. It was way too early for them to comment on it. The fact of the matter is, because I’m known as one...

The impact of the show on the country has been profound; in the way subjects on the show have been brought into the public spectrum and how Jack Bauer, the protagonist, has become an icon – the man that will do anything to stop evil. While many mourn the loss of Law and Order or Lost, 24 has had a greater impact on America in our post-9/11 era.

When the conservative creators of the show left and liberals took over, I was apprehensive. But by and large, the quality of the program kept up. I snorted, of course, when a bad character was threatened with torture by other bad guys. She was hauled into a medieval chamber filled with pincers, hot pokers and iron maidens. Then she was strapped down, a washcloth was draped over...

But is Barack Obama real? What does he really stand for? He didn’t campaign on promises to weaken our defenses and encourage terrorists to attack us with chemical or biological weapons. Yet that is what he is doing. What else is on his agenda? In a very real sense, I know Jack Bauer better than I know Barack Obama.

Studio and network execs declined comment -- but it's believed that the final decision will be made in the next day or two. Move is not a huge surprise, but still reps the end of an era for Fox. "24" helped usher in Fox's ratings surge in the 2000s, as the franchise -- along with "American Idol" and "House," among other series -- led the network to the No. 1 spot in the adults 18-49 demo....

The film side has hired scribe Billy Ray ("State of Play," "Flightplan") to pen the script for the feature version. Ray's pitch, which takes Jack Bauer to Europe, was a hit with Fox execs and producers of the high-concept television series. Ray also wrote and directed "Breach" and "Shattered Glass." Script is said to have come through "24" star Kiefer Sutherland, who's also an exec producer on the series -- and is said to be eager to turn the long-running TV...

    Recordnet.com reports Kiefer Sutherland, better known as Jack Bauer on the Fox TV show “24”, is victim to a cattle salesman who is now on trial for embezzlement and forgery. While starring in several cowboy movies, the actor developed an interest in cattle ranching. He currently owns a ranch in Montana and participates in rodeo contests. Sutherland was approached by Michael Wayne Carr, a cattle manager and competitive steer roping promoter, who told him about an opportunity to buy cattle in Mexico and sell them for a huge profit to preselected buyers in the US. Sutherland gave Carr $869,000 to...

    Jeez Louise. We're less than a month into 2010 and Jack Bauer has already been dragged back into the CTU fold, escaped torture, saved the life of a foreign head-of-state and uncovered a mole. If they keep up this pace for the next 20 hours, I'll be exhausted just watching 24. In a predictable meme, the Jack Bauer joke has surpassed the Chuck Norris jab in terms of hilariousness and poignancy. Example: Jack Bauer found out that Keifer Sutherland was playing him and immediately shot Sutherland because nobody plays Jack Bauer. Delightful, right? At any rate, Jack Bauer is an...

    Cheney’s group, Keep America Safe, is out with a new video that casts President Obama’s response to the Christmas Day terror attempt as a parody of the television show “24.” The video uses unflattering moments from the administration’s response — Gibbs and Napolitano intoning that “the system worked,” Obama golfing — over high-adrenaline music and the sound of a ticking clock.
