Kiefer Sutherland, who played Jack Bauer in the series 24, recently told the BBC that he won't be reprising his role "in any way" for any projects that may pop up in the future.
Sutherland said, "It's one of the greatest gifts I've ever been given as an actor, but it's moving on without me, I want to do other things.
I want to do more television. My experience of 24 was unbelievable, but the main benefit was that it was nice to do something that people actually watched, and that they enjoyed.
There are some movies I've made people might have enjoyed, but there were nine of them watching. And so 24 was so refreshing - the most significant thing was that it was accessible to a lot of people and to know they enjoyed it was so rewarding for me. I don't think there's a better medium than television out there at the moment. So think I want to do more of it and look for projects where I can repeat my experience. You have to take your time though to find something like it - and that means you have to work less. So I'll be waiting for something that's worth it, with the potential for the kind of audience access that 24 had."
There was some talk about Sutherland returning for a another season of 24, or for him to guest star in a spin-off that would have another main star, but now it appears those plans will never come to fruition.
