Kiefer Sutherland’s Head Butting Incident May Delay 24 Season 8

Kiefer Sutherland

Despite being a fan of 24, I’m not thrilled by how this year’s storyline has progressed. Seriously? Tony Almeida as a terrorist scumbag? I don’t buy it. Also, way, way too many usage of the word “conspiracy” has turned the season into something of a joke. Really, in one episode alone, I swear they said the word “conspiracy” about 50 times. Anyways, one can only hope that Season 8 will be better. Then again, maybe that’s asking for too much. Aging shows don’t get better, they get slower, more predictable, etc. So maybe Kiefer Sutherland headbutting some fashion designer in New York and possibly violating his L.A. drunken driving parole, leading to a delay in Season 8 production, is for the best?

So what exactly happened? There was a whole incident where Sutherland was at some fashion show and he headbutted a designer name Jack McCollough. Sutherland says it was because McCollough was being a douche and bumped into Brooke Shields, who Sutherland was talking to, and didn’t apologize when he asked him to. Sutherland then, er, headbutted him. I shit you not.

McCollough denies Sutherland’s version of things, and Shields’ people seems to concur. Oops?

So now the NYPD is looking to charge Sutherland with third-degree assault. Or at least, that’s the rumor. Obviously this is going to cause problems for Sutherland and the production of 24′s Season 8, which is just around the corner and be set in New York, ironically. Sutherland is already on a 5-year parole from a 2007 DUI charge in L.A., so it’ll be up to an L.A. judge to decide if Sutherland has violated his parole and send him back to L.A. jail. Or the judge could just make Jack Bauer do additional community service, though that appears unlikely, especially if the NYPD decides Sutherland was drunk when he took his head to McCollough’s soft, squishy face.

Sutherland is expected to surrender to the NYPD.

By the way, here’s a picture of Jack McCollough. Does he not look like a totally headbuttable douche bag or what? Check out those evil “Son of the Devil” eyes. I can see him saying something to Sutherland to rile him up. I’m just saying. And whoever heard of fashion designers with tattoos? Whose he trying to kid?

    I disagree 100%. I think this season is the third best season behind one and five. I can completely believe Tony working for the bad guys considering that he really doesn’t have anything left to live for.

    I disagree as well. I personally never saw the majority of the events coming. So technically It wasn’t predictable. Although I think they need to finish season 8 and make it the last.

    Here is the thing guys, i figure your all pretty much right. But any predictability that the season may have had ( and i feel there was very little ) was overshadowed by the last few seconds when you see the possible birth of Jack 2.0 in agent walker and the defiance in Kim as she decided to risk her life against her father orders. I’m sure that Jack lives because after all, killing Jack doesn’t make him dead… only angry.

    I just would like to say that ALL of the moderators and admins of former forum WAVETOWN are cocksuckers – Me & Rimmer have fought hard to take over the reigns of said forum and rule the world but failed so we took it down instead! Now what are they up to, faggot wavetown admins.

    Anyways, 24 started sucking ever since Season 6 – BAD story BAD endings, too much politicial bullshit & affairs ! Go back to 24 roots and you’ll save the bloody show…….Season 7 was a major bloody fiasco just like season 6 – Season 7 looks like a budget year they sure played it safe and saved a lot of $$$ on production….

    Season 8 WILL be the last from my trusted sources – Keifer’s contract is over after 8 – and I doubt that FOX would want to option out 3 more seasons with declining ratings in the 18-49 demo.

    24 Could have easily gone for at least 4 or 5 more seasons had the writers not screwed up 6.

    Shame on you ****erfu***** !
