    Default Freddie Prinze Jr. wanted to quit acting after "24"

    Kiefer Sutherland Almost Made Freddie Prinze Jr. Quit Acting : People.com

    Freddie Prinze Jr: 'I Just Wanted to Quit the Business' After Working with Kiefer Sutherland

    BY ALEX HEIGL UPDATED 07/28/2014 at 12:10 PM EDT •ORIGINALLY PUBLISHED 07/28/2014 12:10PM
    Alhough Freddie Prinze Jr. progressed from teen hits like She's All That and I Know What You Did Last Summer in the 1990s to a role in the TV thriller 24 in 2010, apparently he couldn't leave the high school-style drama behind.

    According to Prinze, working with Kiefer Sutherland on the popular show nearly led him to quit acting altogether.

    "I did 24, it was terrible. I hated every moment of it," Prinze told ABC News while at Comic-Con promoting his new Disney XD Series Star Wars Rebels. "I just wanted to quit the business after that. So, I just sort of stopped."

    "Kiefer was the most unprofessional dude in the world," Prinze continued. "That's not me talking trash, I'd say it to his face. I think everyone that's worked with him has said that."

    Prinze's scorched-earth comments continued: "I went and worked for Vince McMahon at the WWE, for Christ's sake … 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 [at 24]. 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."

    Sutherland's rep could not be reached for comment.

    Prinze went on to say that, "Kiefer treated me like a damned hotel Christmas tree."

    Whoa! Even if it is true,....it is never great to go around burning bridges, and looking like an ass doing it. I can believe it though about Kiefer...he seems like a prick, especially when using.

    I had no clue Freddie was 6 feet tall.

    Well Keifer does have a rep for being an ass so no new stories here.

    When I first read this somewhere else, I was shocked to find out Keifer is 5'4". I don't know why that's shocking to me. But it is.

    A lot of older actors are tiny. I met Richard Gere and he was a tiny, skinny thing. I'm 5'5" and I had to look down to talk to him. Very nice, though.

    I think Freddie Prinze was exaggerating on the height, IMDB says Kiefer if 5'9". But we all know male actors add a few inches, while female actors subtract a few years.

    Damn funny story either way. Obviously Freddie really doesn't give a shit what anyone thinks.

    I'm not shocked. Kiefer seems like an ass. Tho the height thing is no reason to complain. Kiefer is the star of the show, and if they want poor Freddie to take his shoes off to make them closer in height, then so be it. That was simply a cheap shot due to Mr 24 being an asshole.

    I think Freddie is one of the most untalented actors out there. Kiefer might be a jerk, but he's a damned good actor.
