Freddie told ABC News, "I did 24, it was terrible. I hated every moment of it. 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." by telling Gossip Cop, "Kiefer worked with Freddie Prinze, Jr. more than five years ago, and this is the first he has heard of Freddie's grievances. Kiefer enjoyed working with Freddie and wishes him the best."
  • Fox also weighed in on the beef to TMZ saying, "Sutherland was nothing but professional during the run of the show and is beloved by cast and crew. It's so out of left field, five years later. We wouldn't have done another 24 if Kiefer were anything like Freddie described."
