Kiefer Sutherland: “It wasn’t a question of whether or not “24” was coming back … but when”

“24: Live Another Day” staring Kiefer Sutherland is a thrilling new event series set to restart the ticking clock on the groundbreaking and Emmy Award-winning drama “24.” The high-octane saga reunites the Emmy Award-winning team of executive producer Howard Gordon; star and executive producer Kiefer Sutherland; co-creator Robert Cochran; executive producers Evan Katz, Manny Coto, David Fury, Brian Grazer; and director Jon Cassar. It also will retain the real-time, pulse-pounding, fast-paced format with split screens and interweaving storylines. The series once again will follow the exploits of heroic agent Jack Bauer (Sutherland). Originally premiering November 6, 2001, “24” was nominated for 73 Emmy Awards, winning for Outstanding Drama Series in 2006. Over eight seasons, Sutherland garnered seven Emmy Award nominations and one win for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series. Sutherland said it was only a matter of time until Bauer hit the small screen again. “It wasn’t just a question of whether or not “24″ was coming back, I think it was more specific towards when is it, because I think people were anticipating a movie. And then with regards to where, that’s always amazed me. I’ve never had another project that I’ve been a part of that has had that kind of international success, where arguably through Europe, Asia, and even parts of Africa, that was equally successful as it was in America, which I think...

Rick Hoffman Says His “Suits” Character is “Evolving With a Limp” and Season Fours Bold Choices

Rick Hoffman, best known for his roles as Patrick Van Dorn in “Jake in Progress” and more recently as Louis Litt in USA Network’s legal drama, “Suits,” sat down with CableTV in an exclusive interview and said the season three finale is surprising and will setup a brand new story line for season four. Q: It’s very rare and difficult to maintain the line between being a character that is not necessarily the nicest guy, but loved at the same time. How are you able to accomplish this so seamlessly? Hoffman: I think any character on television can become a human being when he has been on air long enough, especially when they introduce him when the time is right. By the stroke of some luck and in a funny situation they put me in and I take on the character and Aaron [Korsh] took on this character that kind of grew into this guy is very flawed, insecure, but very loyal and innocent in some strange way. In the combination of all of those, it’s makes him into this likable, hateable kind of like a lot of people out there. Somewhere deep down, he is kind of harmless and just foolish in many, many ways. As an actor, its never easy to portray all the time because it’s a challenging job, but it’s a gratifying one. Q: There...

Q: Being on “Bates Motel” is one of your first gigs. How did you get involved in acting to begin with? Kwiatkowski: I did a lot of theater and improv when I was in high school. I also did a lot of film making, like I made my own short film. The last year of my school I moved to a different high school and a teacher there saw I was doing all of these things and he gave me a scholarship to an acting program. I thought why not. I got an agent and on my very first audition I booked a gig and ever since then I have stuck with it and have been doing it. Q: Were you surprised when you got the role in “Percy Jackson”? Kwiatkowski: Yeah, it’s funny because I didn’t really know anything about the industry. It kind of just happened and then it took a really long time for me to book my...
