LONDON - Kiefer Sutherland admits he had no intention of going back to television after the action-packed 24 ended - but that all changed when he read the script for Touch. The actor was starring on Broadway in a play called That Championship Season when he was approached with the script for the science fiction drama. He was ready to dismiss Touch until he found out Heroes writer Tim Kring was behind it and Peter Chernin, the head of 20th Century Fox when Sutherland started 24, was producing it. "I felt I should read it, kind of out of respect to both of those gentlemen.

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.

As time passes, the reflexes slow down. So those people were suddenly in my home and jabbering on my TV set before I could zap them away. It was the kind of show I try to avoid. A show-biz show, with breathless hosts gushing about some stunning development in the hectic lives and careers of people I'm only vaguely aware of. On the show-biz shows, you have alleged movie stars, most of whom dress like vagrants, telling us about the creative process. Things like: "Well, in this role as a vampire, I tried to show how the stress of sleepless nights can drive a man to extreme forms of sexual harassment.

It's a given for a satisfying film noir that the protagonists are never as smart as they think they are. Such movies get in trouble when the same can be said of the director. Rick King has assembled all the right ingredients in The Killing Time with one important exception - the streak of dark humor that runs through such recent triumphs in the genre as Blood Simple and The Hit. Events may seem tragic and inevitable, but there is always irony in man's puny efforts to control what happens.

Crazy Moon is the kind of movie destined for the great limbo of videoland. I'd like to object to this all too common fate, but this is a case of a film that is purgatory to sit through. In the ferocious competition in the videotape market, this amateurish Canadian production will one day find a space in the back of the stores. One way to encourage you to take it off the rack and rent it is for the company to insist that the film be given a theatrical release. The hope - and it is usually a forlorn one - is that the movie will thus gain some credibility and recognition before it goes into the secondary market.

Ernest Thompson's "1969," which stars Kiefer Sutherland and Robert Downey Jr. as best friends trying to make sense out of hippies, protest and Vietnam, is the latest sentimental journey from the man who also wrote "On Golden Pond. " This time out, Thompson makes his directorial debut in addition to writing the script. The result is a small film highlighted by the intimate scenes that have become Thompson's trademark and lowlighted by his traditional bad habit of drowning his story lines in syrup.

You've got to figure old Rupe Murdoch and his Fox conglomerate are going to be able to pay off a little of the TV Guide purchase debt with profits from "Young Guns. " The film's got some of the hottest young names in the business - Emilio Estevez, brother Charlie Sheen, Kiefer Sutherland and Lou Diamond Phillips - sometimes showing bare chests and often bearing soulful scowls. There are lots of exploding guns and whizzing knives. In between are wrenching soliloquies, appropriate gore and a requisite peyote-consuming scene.

The sacred lance of the Lakota Indians was so powerful it could kill three buffalo with a single throw, according to legend. Hollywood legend, that is. In other words, it's a screenwriter's contrived plot device that drives the movie "Renegades" - a slick, violent and boneheaded action picture starring Lou Diamond Phillips and Kiefer Sutherland. These two former "Young Guns" are paired here as a "48 Hours"-style macho duo. The resemblance is no accident. The "Renegades" advertisements have borrowed the "48 Hours" theme song and its title line - "The boys are back in town.

IT WASN'T him. It was us. Kiefer Sutherland's back after a four-year break from playing Jack Bauer on Fox's turbo-charged "24," a break he says the viewers may have needed more than he did. "I love playing him. No, I wasn't tired," said Sutherland in an interview in January, shortly before leaving for London to begin filming "24: Live Another Day," which premieres tonight. "When you see the kind of excitement that was generated when it was announced that we were going to come back, you wouldn't have found that if we'd gone straight into an episode of Season 9," said Sutherland.

Sports fans have draft day. TV lovers have up-front presentations, when the networks reveal the rookies that have earned starting spots on their fall lineups. TV's annual rite of spring announced itself twice - if somewhat timidly - on Monday as both NBC and Fox introduced their new offerings for the 2013-14 season. Using the Roots as the house band at Radio City Music Hall, NBC took the wraps off three dramas and three sitcoms, including The Michael J. Fox Show . Here is the slate: The Blacklist stars James Spader as an American espionage agent who goes ultra-rogue.

MIRA NAIR changes much (for the worse) in her adaptation of "The Reluctant Fundamentalist," but she leaves the novel's most provocative passage intact. It's the moment when an Islamist sympathizer explains why, though he was living a privileged life as a Wall Street hotshot, he smiled with awe when he saw the 9/11 massacres on television. Something to do with David hitting Goliath (poor-taste alert). The fellow goes on to say that the collapsing Trade Center buildings represented to him a deflating of American arrogance, perhaps forgetting for a moment that the towers were full of people, including hundreds of foreign nationals, Muslims among them.

Kiefer Sutherland told Brit TV host Jonathan Ross on Friday that he planned a film version of his groundbreaking Fox hit 24. The BBC reports that Sutherland, who plays hero Jack Bauer on the real-time thriller, says the flick will be shot in the U.K. "In the U.S., 24 was slow to catch on, but in the U.K., it was big, so Fox stuck with it, so thank you, Britain," he said. 'Brokeback' settlement? Actor Randy Quaid has dropped his $10 mil suit against makers of the Oscar-winning Brokeback Mountain, in which he alleged that Universal Pictures' Focus Features underpaid him on the low-budget sleeper hit. Quaid says he's reached a settlement deal with the studio for extra pay, but Focus says not only is there no deal, but it never negotiated with Quaid.

So it's already been all over every news outlet on the globe. But we wanted to wait a day before announcing the biggest breakup since Princess Di and Prince Charles. A day to reflect on the awfulness of it all - time we had hoped would be used by Ken and Barbie to heal their rift for Valentine's Day. But they haven't, and we have to report the sad news: America's prettiest couple has broken up after 43 years. According to Russell Arons, vice president of marketing at Mattel, the dolls will no longer snuggle together as lovers: "Like other celebrity couples, their Hollywood romance has come to an end. " Arons added that the duo "will remain friends.

Just a few days ago, the April issue of Philadelphia magazine landed with a resounding ker-thud on the doorstep of Penn's WXPN-FM (88.5). The place hasn't been the same since. The reason was a story by magazine staffer Lou Harry about popular 'XPN afternoon drive-time jock Karin Begin, a 24-year-old Canadian import and newcomer to the station. So unflattering was the piece that Begin read it and promptly collapsed. If Harry is to be believed, Begin is either given to gross exaggeration or she's an outright fraud.
