Several actors have dabbled in music throughout the years like Kevin Bacon, Eddie Murphy, David Duchovny, Bruce Willis, Don Johnson and William Shatner to name a few, and now Kiefer Sutherland is trying his hand at it too. At 49, Jack Bauer decided to release his first album and maybe he should’ve waited a lot longer. Just because he played a Cowboy in Young Guns, doesn’t mean he can be a Country singer. But then again with his singing voice, I am not sure he can do any genre. Well maybe if it was really Heavy Metal because he sounds like an older woman who has been chain smoking nonstop since World War II. Even though the lyrics of his first single, Not Enough Whiskey, will also work for Metal, the melody does not.
The actor’s (I think we can agree he should not be called a singer just yet) album Down In A Hole does not have a release date as of yet. But he will be going on tour starting on April 14th if you want to see him perform live.
What do you think of his debut single that will be available to download on April Fool’s Day?
Over the weekend, Fox said that they are interested in another season of 24, but at this point they don’t know when.
It looks like Kiefer Sutherland needed to find a way to supplement that money he is losing by finding another job. What is his new occupation? Manny. That’s right, yesterday on The Late Late Show, it was revealed that Jack Bauer went from protecting America to babysitting Jim Gaffigan’s kids as the latter one hosted the CBS late night show.
Now that we know that Sutherland is a Nanny for Hire, I am going to borrow my friends’ kids so I can employee him to watch over them. I think we can all agree that is the real purpose for Nannycams!
Over the weekend Freddie Prinze Jr was interviewed by Jason Nathanson from ABC News at Comic-Con. The two men then talked about Prinze’s past projects and for some reason the actor bashed his former 24 co-star, Kiefer Sutherland. He told the reporter, “I did ’24,’ it was terrible. I hated every moment of it.” Then he added, “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.” But it didn’t stop there, he then said working with him made him want to stop working in the biz. Which he then explains his post-24 job, “I went and worked for Vince McMahon at the WWE for Christ’s sake and it was a crazier job than working with Kiefer.” He finally concluded his rant with, “But, at least he was cool and tall. I didn’t have to take my shoes off to do scenes with him, which they made me do. Just put the guy on an apple box or don’t hire me next time. You know I’m 6 feet and he’s 5’4.”
So back when I first moved to LA, I had the chance to interview him for a movie junket. Since I was new, I asked him about what it was like to work with his co-star for the film. He told me she was awful and couldn’t stand working with her. Since I was a novice, I was horrified. But when I showed my co-workers the tape, they were like he’s totally joking. Then he hit me that his very dry sense of humor made me believe him, but after I thought about it I knew he was making a funny.
So listen to the Prinze’s interview from this weekend here, and see if you think he really hated working with Sutherland or he was joking with the ABC News reporter. I think he was totally joking with the guy by the sound of his voice and laughter, and Nathanson was totally oblivious to it. I was brand new to Hollywood when I mistook his joke for the truth, what is this guyâ€™s excuse?
I mean listen to Prinzeâ€™s interview from 2010 above, and you can tell he is being sincere about Kiefer back then. I honestly think that when Prinze feels he has good rapport with a reporter, he jokes around with them. Only problem is that his humor is so dry, you just donâ€™t know it at the time. I was lucky, I didnâ€™t go to press with my story before I was informed I confused fiction for fact. I wonder when Prinze will come forward, and tell the world he was joking during his interview this weekend. This way, Kiefer doesnâ€™t need to go all Jack Bauer on him.
After 4 years of waiting for Jack Bauer’s (Kiefer Sutherland) return, fans of 24 are finally getting what they want tonight at 8p on Fox with the two premiere of 24: Live Another Day.
Since Bauer left our airwaves, he has been off the grid too. But suddenly he surfaces again in London, the same exact time that the President of the United States is there. The CIA thinks he is there to assassinate the POTUS, so are they right? Has Bauer changed that much? You just have to tune in to find out in this 12-hour special event.
We might only be getting a half a day, but we are also getting twice the excitement.
Then at 10p switch the dial over to FX where another fan favorite returns after an extended hiatus. Louis CK is back with Louie, and good things come to those who wait.
At 10p, Louie goes to buy a dildo and winds up hurting his back. Now he has to get an old lady to help him out. And guess what is the best thing for a bad back? The thing that caused his back to go out in the first place.
Then at 10:30p, Jerry Seinfeld asks the comedian to open for him at a benefit in The Hamptons. He says yes, but will quickly wish he didn’t. He bombs so badly, it is painful to watch. But at least he meets model, who wants to has sex with him. Which would be a good thing except it turns into a Sex Sent Me to the ER episode. Who is hospitalized? You just have to tune in to find out and to laugh your a$$ off.
Next week the networks will announce their fall lineups, but today they are already saying which shows will be back and which ones won’t. CBS picked up it’s 20th show (which is about as many as NBC cancelled) for next season and that show is Criminal Minds. The CW still feels that Nikita has a fighting chance and The Carrie Diaries is still fashionable for them. NBC voted for another season of Parks and Recreation, but they impeached 1600 Penn, put Up All Night to sleep permanently, decided we don’t want to see any Guys with Kids and finally put Whitney out of our misery. When it comes to Fox, Randy Jackson told E! News that he voted himself off of American Idol after 12 seasons. Fox also decided that Kiefer Sutherland no longer has the Touch for them.
I always hate this time of year, my shows always get the bad news…:(
