"24: Live Another Day" Updates
Fully immersed into the Jack Bauer character, Sutherland is back filming the new "24" series in London with a new series regular "Chuck" star Yvonne Strahovski. Back in his own element, the 47-year-old actor is looking dapper and sexy as he tries to talk to his unknown assailant.
Now a fugitive on the run, Jack is now being chased by CIA operatives and other unknown enemies. It seems that Jack has no plans to turn himself in but in the end he got himself shot by an unknown shooter.
"I'm terrified. I won't lie to you," says Keifer when asked about filming his new series. "Until we start shooting, I'm about as anxious and wound up as I've been in a long time."
When asked about the upcoming "24" movie, he said: "The film is an ongoing situation. There's always an opportunity to do that. Howard [Gordon] came up with an idea for a 12-episode run at this, and it was the opportunity that presented itself to us first."
The actor revealed that having the "24" movie is a fantastic idea. "It's something that we're very excited about doing, and it's something that we're really primarily focused on. So, if this ends up rebooting the show or causing a film to be made, so be it," says the "24: Live Another Day" actor.
