Kiefer Sutherland is looking forward to an eighth season of ‘24‘ he told the Associated Press while in Hong Kong promoting the new 3-D animated movie “Monsters vs. Aliens,” in which he voices the character of General W.R. Monger.
Sutherland, who plays counterterrorism agent Jack Bauer, said he’s committed to the show that’s revived his career.
“If I was going to liken ’24’ to a girlfriend, 24′ has been really good to me, Sutherland said. “And I need to be really good back.”
“There are plays I want to do. There are so many different things I would like to do, but I was so fortunate to be part of something like ’24’ that my focus is still on that right now,” he said.
Sutherland stresses that the future of ’24’ depends primarily on the writers.
“The real pressure is placed on the writers. It’s a real question about how much they feel they can give and what they can do,” he said.
