Kiefer Sutherland waiting for "great idea" to bring back 24

Kiefer Sutherland waiting for
Kiefer Sutherland reveals that he would reprise his role as Jack Bauer on 24 for the right story.

Kiefer Sutherland has admitted that he would return to 24 for a one-off movie or full-blown series if the story was right.

The 53-year-old starred as all-action hero Jack Bauer on the twisty drama series between 2001 and 2014 across nine seasons and more than 200 episodes.

Sutherland did not reprise the character for the one-off 24: Legacy miniseries in 2017 - although he did serve as executive producer - but is open to bringing back Jack in the future.

"I've always left the door slightly ajar for 24 if someone comes up with a great idea," he told Forbes.

"I've been banging my head against a brick wall for a movie for so long that I've got a concussion.

"Honestly, the form more 24 would take doesn't matter to me as much as the quality of the story.

"If someone comes up with a great story that can be told in two hours, then we're going to make a movie, but if someone comes up with a great story that could be 24 hours, we'll do the show."

Bauer's last appearance came in the final episode of 24: Live Another Day and saw him surrender himself to the Russian government in order to secure the release of long-time colleague Chloe (Mary Lynn Rajskub).
