Costar: Kiefer's no Jack Bauer

Freddie Prinze Jr. isn't a big Kiefer Sutherland fan.

The She's All That star had a terrific turn as antiterrorist officer Cole Ortiz on the eighth season of Sutherland's celebrated Fox actioner 24.

But while fans liked his role, Prinze, 38, totally hated being there. "I hated every moment of it," Sarah Michelle Gellar's hub tells ABC News.

"Kiefer was the most unprofes-

sional dude in the world. That's not me talking trash, I'd say it to his face."

How bad did it get? Sooo bad, Prinze almost quit showbiz for good. "I just wanted to quit the business after that. So, I just sort of stopped."

Well he's back and at Comic-Con in San Diego to promote Star Wars Rebels.

A situation for The Situation

World-celebrated media figurine Michael "The Situation" Sorrentino, 32, on Monday was ordered to anger management classes as part of a deal stemming from his July 15 arrest for allegedly beating on his brother outside the family's business, the Boca Tanning Club, in Middletown Twp. in Monmouth County.

Cops won't say which of the Jersey Shore star's two brothers was involved, but TMZ says it was Frank. Once the Sitch completes the course, charges may be downgraded. "We worked it out today," said The Situation's lawyer, Edward Fradkin. "Ultimately, this is a squabble between brothers."

It's no big deal? Look at how Cain and Abel turned out.
