Kiefer Sutherland has revealed that he wished his 24 counterpart Jack Bauer was allowed to swear in the series.
Speaking to Empire, the actor said his "one regret" was the inability to swear, as it would have made Bauer "more threatening".
He said: "I would have liked to have been able to swear. I would have been the most foul-mouthed b**tard of all time. I'd have made Tony Soprano look like a choir boy".
He also revealed that he had have a morning routine to get expletives out of his system before shooting, admitting: "I used to say, 'F**k!' as soon as I got out of bed."
The actor added that the show may have had more freedom on other channels, such as HBO. He said: "I often think about what would have happened if we were on cable instead of Fox".
The final season of 24 was released on DVD and Blu-ray last week.
