Kiefer Sutherland's Rep Responds to Freddie Prinze, Jr.'s Claims

Kiefer Sutherland‘s rep and a Fox official are both speaking out on the claims that Freddie Prinze, Jr. made about the actor.

Kiefer worked with Freddie Prinze, Jr. more than 5 years ago, and this is the first he has heard of Freddie‘s grievances,” a rep for the actor said in a statement. “Kiefer enjoyed working with Freddie and wishes him the best.”

An unnamed Fox official spoke to TMZ about the claims, saying Kiefer was “nothing but professional during the run of the show and is beloved by cast and crew.”

“It’s so out of left field, 5 years later. We wouldn’t have done another 24 if Kiefer were anything like Freddie described,” the Fox exec added.

    Well Prinze might not have been lying. Some Veteran actors pull the “You don’t know nothing” card on younger actors and make their lives miserable on set. Normally, if the main actor is an a$$hole no one speaks of it to the public, it’s just the gossip among the set crew and the other actors involved. No one hardly ever goes public because for an actor it could tarnish your reputation very quickly within the industry.

    Damage control 101.
    I can’t see why Freddie would lie. It must be true.

    Well Freddie Prinz IS married to Sarah Michelle Geller….His wife is a snobbish piece of work, and I am sure it has rubbed off on him.

    I saw Kiefer on the Hollywood Reporter round table panel and found him to be arrogant and he definitely thought he was better than the other actors. Haven’t liked him since I saw that.

    Freddie should be the last one to call anyone difficult to work with, his wife has the market cornered on acting like a b itch to co-workers, and they are on record as never wanting to work with her.
    He is whipped, so back to playing Mr. Mom, for him.

    @Of Course: Where did you hear that one from? Alyson Hannigan? From my understanding Alyson was also really hard to work with and was often described as a b***h by her Buffy co-stars. In fact, most of the Buffy co-stars seem to like SMG these days more then Alyson.

    Good job on Freddie Prinze Jr. trying to become relevant again. If he had half the acting chops of his father (or Kiefer for that matter) he would be able to let his acting skills do the talking, instead he has to complain about someone he worked with over 5 years ago.

    Ask yourself, if you worked with someone 5 years ago, would you only now start complaining about him/her?

    Freddie admitted that it was about taking his shoes off. That was his grief.

    LMAO. PR is funny. If you’re talented you will get work if if you’re an a**hole because the only thing the execs care about is $$$$$

    My first instinct was that he was trying really, really hard to be relevant again. I mean who was interviewing Freddie Prinze Jr. In the first place? Did we step into a time machine to 1999 when this no talent looser still had a career? All he is now is Mr. Sarah Michelle Geller. I find it hard to believe that they would have kept making seasons so 24 if he was so horrible to work with? I love 24 and have watched it since the very first episode never once did you hear a bad word spoken about Kiefer and in interviews he’s always seemed kind and generous. The fact that Freddie would immediately go to something as trivial as Kiefer’s height should tell you that he doesn’t have a lot to go on and is just trying to drum up a few pages of press about himself.

    Funny that you should say that most actors don’t speak out about stuff like that so they don’t tarnish their own reputation. Seeing as how Prinze Jr. is kind of a never-has-been, I suspect that he’s only speaking out to get his name in some print, which isn’t much of an admirable quality either.

    Him crying about it literally means nothing. It obviously doesn’t interfere with Sutherland’s work, because he keeps getting real jobs. It’s hilarious to hear this kind of criticism from someone who’s most well known acting jobs (crap ones at that) were over 10 years ago.

    When Kathrine Heigl was called out for being difficult, not a single rep from ABC commented on Heigl’s behalf. I think Fox stepping up and speaking on Sutherland’s behalf might be genuine. As the Rep said, it’s been 5 years ago- why are they just now hearing about it? And, who’s to say Freddie wasn’t the difficult one, and projected his animosity towards Sutherland? I wasn’t there, so I don’t know; but where there’s smoke there’s generally fire (like in Heigl’s case-MANY have spoken out against her)- and where there’s untalented hasbeen actors, there’s usually a boy who cried world.

    What is hilarious is the people posting on here acting like they know the actors like “I Heard”, Well “He Is”, lol STFU

    Amy Says:


    But Heigl isn’t talented. People in Hollyweird will only protect you if you have talent.

    For example: Lindsay Lohan vs Robert Downey Jr.

    Both have had substance abuse problems but only RDJ was given multiple opportunities to make a comeback because he is talented.

    D Plasticmask Says:

    I think that I will choose to believe that Mr Sutherland was professional and nothing like this actor described. He is a generous interview and usually described by other Actors as being energetic and anything BUT bad to work with. (shrug) Besides, I like K. Sutherland and I don’t like this Freddie Prinze Jr actor.
