Kiefer Sutherland Made Freddie Prinze Jr. Want to Quit Acting
Freddie Prinze Jr. was a can't miss movie star in the late 1990's with hits like "She's All That" and "I Know What You Did Last Summer."
The 38-year-old father of two grew into different roles on TV and film until he co-starred in "24" alongside Kiefer Sutherland in 2010 -- a role that almost led him to quit acting all together, Prinze told ABC News.
"I did '24,' it was terrible. I hated every moment of it," Prinze said. "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."
