[ # ] Was Freddie Prinze Jr joking when he bashed Kiefer Sutherland?
July 28th, 2014 under Freddie Prinze Jr / Sarah Michelle Gellar, Kiefer Sutherland

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 guy’s excuse?
I mean listen to Prinze’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 don’t know it at the time. I was lucky, I didn’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 doesn’t need to go all Jack Bauer on him.
