Kiefer Sutherland Discusses 24 and Past TV Career Stigma at Comic Con
Kiefer Sutherland was at Comic Con today, and he commented on the finale of Fox's 24: Live Another Day saying, "we went thorough so many ideas for that ending" and "on some level we copped out because on some level it is hard to end it." He went on to comment on the Moscow based story line saying "we talked about that maybe for the DVD, we'll have Jack take out a hand grenade and blow the Russian helicopter up - we'd never had that kind of freedom before."
The actor discussed how TV has changed over the years in terms of and actor's career. "When I started out, if you were on TV you were dead. Part of the fear of television was playing a longer character over a long time. Now you get to develop a character over years and the character changes. I'm a huge movie fan but I go to less and less movies now."
Sutherland also discussed the differences between filming here in the US and filming in the UK. "In Los Angeles, a police officer can basically say you can't walk here and in London, they can't. People are very clear about their rights," he added, "the sidewalk is mine I paid for it." He also spoke about the fact that they have more restrictive gun laws, so they had to come up with more creative ways to kill enemies. "In many funny ways, it kind of helped us. Jon and I had a seminal moment when we were shooting on the Thames and we were thinking of the history from the defeat of the Spanish Armada to now. There was a texture in the UK where we got to shoot that was special."
