Kiefer Sutherland Is Back on ’24: Redemption’

While Kiefer Sutherland, 42, has gotten a lot of flack for last year’s DUI arrest (not his first one, mind you) and extended jail-stay, it’s finally time to really focus on what he does best: Jack Bauer!

Jack’s back to save the day in a special two-hour prequel to make up for last year’s axed seventh season, which was shortened due to that pesky little writer’s strike.

Serving as a bridge between season 6 and season 7, tonight’s mini-movie takes place in South Africa and is based on the real life situations in Rwanda.

(The super episode airs at 8:00 p.m. on the Fox network.)

Angelina Jolie’s father, Jon Voight, also stars in 24: Redemption—as one of the bad guys! Juicy!

This should be a fantastic teaser for the new season, which finally airs on January 11, 2009.
