Jonathan Ross welcomes Kiefer Sutherland
Friday Night With Jonathan Ross, 10.35pm, Friday 16 April 2010, BBC One.
Actor Kiefer Sutherland talks candidly about voluntarily going to jail for drink-driving: “I made a really stupid mistake, I put a lot of things in jeopardy.”
He reveals he had never spent 24 hours alone before: “It was awful, I was in solitary for a long time. It’s not a place you want to be. I was so cross with myself, it was my way of teaching myself a lesson.”
He tells Jonathan that he was overcome with emotion at the end of filming 24: “I went to say a few words to the crew and lost my voice – much more difficult than I’d thought.
“I never thought it would go beyond one season, and now I get called Jack more than my real name. I’m looking forward to 24 – The Movie.”
Kiefer also hints that Jack Bauer loses it in the end: “He’s mad, it’s a personal thing … he goes out in a serious blaze of glory … you see a lot of emotion – basically him coming apart.”
