Kiefer Sutherland's Surgery Stops '24' Filming for a While

24Looks like Jack Bauer's attempt to foil the latest evil doings by the bad guys in only '24' hours as hit a snag. Production on the show has been halted while star Kiefer Sutherland has surgery to repair a ruptured cyst near his kidney. The cyst actually ruptured last week while he was filming the FOX show. He'll return to the show next week and they say that there shouldn't be any interruption in episodes for the rest of the season.

A ruptured cyst near a kidney sounds like an incredibly major medical problem to me, something that would take a long time to recover from (especially if you have to go into filming scenes where you are hanging from a helicopter, fighting, and jumping off of buildings), but I guess medicine and surgery has come a long way.

I thought that 24 was filmed in advance. They're still working on season 8?

I love Kiefer! Hope he makes a speedy recovery and that we have many more new episodes of 24 in the future. I've really enjoyed reading "Kiefer Sutherland: Living Dangerously." It's a great book.

Ruptured cyst? That's nothing. Last week he pulled a knife out of his stomach and flung it at a guy.
