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.

After saving the world, what does heroic anti-terrorist Jack Bauer of "24" fame do for an encore? He records an album and hits the road for a U.S. tour. Actually, it's not the fictional action hero who will perform Thursday at a sold-out Sellersville Theatre show, but the actor who played him on the smash Fox series. And Kiefer Sutherland understands there may be some skepticism concerning his (temporary) career change. "I am completely aware of the stigma attached to an actor doing music," Sutherland, 49, said during a recent conference call with reporters.

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. - Kiefer Sutherland is used to playing a man who gets things done, by any means necessary. So why, after more than 200 episodes as 24 action hero Jack Bauer, would the British-born Canadian want any part of the restrictions of even a fictional U.S. presidency? Maybe because after years of legislative gridlock, and in an election cycle no TV writer could top for twists, turns, and sheer insanity, ABC's Designated Survivor is hitting the reset button on the federal government this fall, big time.

From time travel to movie reboots, television's preoccupation with the past continues this fall, as networks, cable channels, and streaming services turn to familiar titles, faces, and ideas. Kiefer Sutherland is back. So are Sarah Jessica Parker, Kevin James, Geena Davis, and Woody Allen. But the news isn't all old. Three of the shows I'm most excited about are dramas about an accidental president (Sutherland in Designated Survivor ), a British monarch ( The Crown )

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.

Nepotism may be a dirty word in government, but it's pretty much the rule in Hollywood. Just think about all the great acting dynasties: the Barrymores and the Richardsons, the Douglas clan, and the Bridges and Fondas. But, as Kiefer Sutherland recently reminded me, having a parent in the biz gets your foot in the door. From there, you're on your own. Ask Sutherland about his parents - actors Donald Sutherland and Shirley Douglas - and he waxes poetic. Sutherland, 49, worked alongside his mom in a 1997 production of The Glass Menagerie in Toronto, but until this year, the 24 star had never worked with his famous father, whose remarkable body of work includes MASH , Don't Look Now , The Dirty Dozen , and Invasion of the Body Snatchers . The duo do share two credits - Max Dugan Returns (1983)

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.
