The Only 24 Cast Member Freddie Prinze Jr. Had Beef With

Freddie Prinze Jr. was everywhere in the late ’90s and early ’00s. His roles in “She’s All That” and “I Know What You Did Last Summer” made him a superstar, and helped him land a role in “24” in 2010. However, they did not help him get along with the show’s lead, Kiefer Sutherland.

Prinze joined “24” during the final season of the show’s original run, playing Cole Ortiz, a CTU operative. Although “24” was popular, the on-set environment was less than ideal, according to Prinze. “I did ’24,’ it was terrible. I hated every moment of it,” Prinze told ABC News. “Kiefer was the most unprofessional dude in the world. That’s not me talking trash, I’d say it to his face, I think everyone that’s worked with him has said that.”

Prinze went on to say that Sutherland and the “24” producers made him take off his shoes to film certain scenes, and implied that had to do so to make Sutherland seem taller. As Prinze observed, that could’ve been fixed by having Sutherland stand on a box, or by hiring a shorter actor to play against him. Prinze said that the experience was so awful that he wanted to quit acting altogether, and ultimately resulted in him taking an extended break from the industry.

A representative for Sutherland eventually responded to Prinze’s claims, telling ABC News, “Kiefer worked with Freddie Prinze, Jr. more than five years ago, and this is the first he has heard of Freddie’s grievances,” the representative said. “Kiefer enjoyed working with Freddie and wishes him the best.”
