ABC News - Kiefer Sutherland's rep tells ABC News that the negative comments from former "24" co-star Freddie Prinze, Jr. about working together came as something of a surprise.
"Kiefer worked with Freddie Prinze, Jr. more than 5 years ago, and this is the first he has heard of Freddie's grievances," his rep told ABC News.
The rep added, "Kiefer enjoyed working with Freddie and wishes him the best.
The response came after comments Prinze made to ABC News while he was at Comic-Con promoting his new Disney XD series "Star Wars Rebels."
"I did '24,' it was terrible. I hated every moment of it," Prinze told ABC. "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."
He continued, "I just wanted to quit the business after that. So, I just sort of stopped."
Prinze, 38, said because of the experience, he stopped acting for a while and even went to work at World Wrestling Entertainment with Vince McMahon.
OOHH SHIITT!! Heads down, world, the big boys are goin at it!
First of all, I didn't know Freddie Prinze, Jr. was still alive. That's not a comical exaggeration. I was legitimately uncertain of his current mortality status. So that was a nice surprise to start off this story. Second of all, how about the fact that the fuckin "She's All That" and "Summer Catch" kid is gettin all butthurt after being allowed the privilege of sharing the screen with Jack Bauer? Hey bro, if people like me are visibly shocked to even know that you're living, maybe you wanna hold off on talkin shit on the greatest secret agent in American television history.
And how about Kiefer just mind-fucking the shit out of FPJ with his perfect response. Oh, I'm not professional, huh? Well how about the most professional response ever to a public bashing: "sorry you felt that way dude, had a great time workin with you though and best of luck."
You hear that? That's the sound of Freddie choking on his words and dying (possibly again, still not convinced he's been alive recently*). Can't get more professional than that response, baby. Sooo, guess you just got owned, Fred.
* Wait, can we go over the WWE thing? Like, I guess that proves he was alive, but what the fuck is Freddie Prinze, Jr. doing working for Vince McMahon? I mean, I could easily just look it up, but I'm just gonna guess that he was originally asked guest appear on SmackDown as part of a love triangle between himself, Triple H and Stephanie McMahon, but he took the role too far and actually got Stephanie pregnant. So he had to work for Vince as like his personal servant in order to avoid execution. Hey, they've had crazier storylines.... okay fine, I just smoked.
