Here are the remaining three '24' Season 6 Debrief episodes. I thought they were all pretty good. It was an effective way of showing what happened to Jack in the hours after Day 6 and how the government's treatment of Jack led him to be finished with them once and for all.
I particularly liked Jack's last line to the agent questioning him in the last episode. I think it's one of the all-time best Jack quotes.
"Get ready for another bad day. Jack's back. Twenty-four more hours with Bauer.
These cliche headlines are sure to lead features sections in newspapers and various entertainment Web sites over the next few weeks, but that's OK. Boy, is it OK! It means Kiefer Sutherland has returned as his man-on-a-mission Jack Bauer for season seven of "24." Finally."
'24' star Kiefer Sutherland has yet another nomination for '24: Redemption'. This time it is a Screen Actor's Guild Award nomination for Outstanding Performance By An Actor In A TV Movie Or Miniseries.
For those of you interested in Kiefer Sutherland's work outside of '24', he has won yet another award. This time it is for his voice work on the video game, "Call of Duty: World at War". He won the "Big Name In The Game Award" on Spike TV's Video Game Awards Show Sunday night.
This past week has been a great week for Kiefer: a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, a Golden Globe nomination and now this award. Congratulations to Kiefer - it is very much deserved!
For some reason, the videos of this ceremony that I have come across only show bits and pieces of the speeches. Here's one more that features Kiefer's remarks at the end of his speech. I was really struck by how gracious and humble he is. The remaining part of the video shows the unveiling of his star and signing autographs for some fans.
Here's yet another Hollywood Reporter article that is a short interview with Kiefer discussing what else: '24'
THR: What were you doing during the hiatus after the writers strike?
Sutherland: That was a really frustrating time. We had very little contact with the writers. After seven years (of working on the show), we were friends. We talked on that level, but they were very strict about not even talking about the show. (Co-executive producer) Jon Cassar and I were thinking about which direction the show was going, so we had conversations, but without the writers. It was really frustrating. It's a really limited process. We all had to stand down. We were very glad when everything was resolved and we could go back to work.
Here's an article from The Hollywood Reporter about '24' star Kiefer Sutherland as part of Kiefer's work being honored when he receives his star today on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
"It would be impossible to overstate the value Kiefer brings to our show in terms of his professionalism as an actor and as an executive producer," says 20th Century Fox TV chairman Gary Newman. "He arrives every day prepared for his work. He's focused, he's fast and incredibly demanding of himself and others in terms of the creative quality of what we do."
"24" executive producer Howard Gordon believes that Sutherland's identification with his character Jack Bauer is crucial to the success of the series. "Kiefer has a really interesting relationship to Jack," Gordon says. "At some level, I think Jack is an aspirational character for Kiefer."
"I think our affection for Jack comes from Kiefer's affection for Jack. He really does ultimately induct us into that character and make us feel what we're supposed to feel. Kiefer has a knowledge of Jack Bauer that is deep in a way that nobody else's could possibly be. I think it's that thoughtfulness and the depth of his commitment to the character that makes it come alive."
Kiefer Sutherland is finally getting his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. It was announced last year, but they are just now getting around to the ceremony.
"Kiefer Sutherland is to be honored with the 2,377th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on December 9th.
The actor's father Donald Sutherland and moviemaker Joel Schumacher will be on hand to pay tribute to the 24 star at the unveiling ceremony outside the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel on Hollywood Boulevard."
