’24’ Production Halts for Sutherland Surgery

Production on FOX’s action series 24 has been temporarily halted to allow for actor Kiefer Sutherland, who portrays main character Jack Bauer, to have surgery. Early last week, Sutherland was filming when he ruptured a cyst near his kidney. While he took the rest of the week off, production continued, filming scenes that did not require Sutherland’s participation. However, they’ve done all they can without Sutherland, so production is being halted until Sutherland recovers from an elective surgery he is undertaking to fix the cyst.

An official statement released by Sutherland’s publicist assures the public that Sutherland’s surgery should only be a weeklong process, and isn’t a big deal at all. “While Kiefer Sutherland is frustrated to miss even one day of work, he and Fox decided together that it would be best to complete this minor elective procedure now as a precaution as opposed to six weeks from now when production wraps. He looks forward to returning to work next week.”

FOX released a statement with a similar message: “We are temporarily suspending production of ’24’ while our friend and colleague Kiefer Sutherland undergoes a medical procedure. We hope to resume production shortly and do not anticipate any disruption in the broadcast of this season’s episodes.”

24 fans can rest easy. It’s going to take more than a ruptured cyst to bring Jack Bauer down.
