Don't worry, guys, Kiefer Sutherland will continue fighting terrorism in 24's upcoming 8th season.
Sutherland, who plays the gritty Jack Bauer, says, "If I was going to liken '24' to a girlfriend, '24' has been really good to me. And I need to be really good back" and despite a desire to explore other acting avenues, "I was so fortunate to be part of something like '24' that my focus is still on that right now."
But he also admits that the show's future depends on the show's writers and "how much they feel they can give and what they can do."
Sutherland recently lent his voice to the animated feature Monsters vs. Aliens, but said he wouldn't mind being typecast as a "Bauer-like government agent."
