’24′ star Kiefer Sutherland met a real-life terrorism expert on a skiing trip earlier this month. The two were on a ski lift.
“This guy leans over and said, ‘I really like your show’… He went on to tell me that he was a C.I.A. operative… and I said, ‘I hope the show doesn’t offend you’. The operative had just returned from Afghanistan. Apparently, Kiefer turned red in the face.
“When we got to the top of the mountain, he wanted me to call his mom and explain to her why he can’t get things done in 24 hours,” as reported by The Daily Express.
