Freddie Prinze Jr (haven’t heard that name in a while!) appeared on 24 back in 2010, and while the hit show starring Kiefer Sutherland had its share of fans, Freddie was not one of them. In fact, his experience of working with Kiefer was so awful, he wanted to quit acting for good after wrapping, as he revealed at Comic-Con this past weekend.
From ABC News:
“I did 24, it was terrible, I hated every moment of it. Kiefer was the most unprofessional dude in the world. That’s not me talking trash, I’d say it to his face. I think everyone that’s worked with him has said that. I just wanted to quit the business after that, so I just sort of stopped.
“I went and worked for Vince McMahon at the WWE, for Christ’s sake … but, at least he was cool and tall. I didn’t have to take my shoes off to do scenes with him, which they made me do [at 24]. Just put the guy on an apple box or don’t hire me next time. You know I’m 6 feet and he’s 5’4″.”
Apparently Kiefer had no idea that Freddie hates his guts so much, because here’s the statement his rep vomited to People:
“Kiefer worked with Freddie Prinze Jr. more than five years ago, and this is the first he has heard of Freddie’s grievances. Kiefer enjoyed working with Freddie and wishes him the best.”
Something tells me that’s a load of bullshit. To be honest, I don’t know much about either of these guys. I don’t think I’ve heard many nightmare stories about Kiefer Sutherland, but it does sound very vaguely familiar? Who knows, but Freddie must have been having a bad day to bring up something 4 years old out of the blue like that…

BabyCenter.com surveyed 5,000 moms about their favorite and least favorite baby names of 2009, so that these kids can Google themselves in twelve years and be all like “See, Mom? You set me up for failure! Everyone hated me from the start!” And then they’ll run off and smoke a bunch of crack and get a DUI and go to rehab and it’ll be a great big huge news story and then I WILL MAKE MONEY. So thank you, BabyCenter.com
The favorite baby name of 2009: Sarah Michelle Gellar and Freddie Prinze Jr.’s now-5-month-old baby girl, Charlotte Grace, who earned 49%. Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck’s daughter Seraphina Rose Elizabeth, 14 months, came in at second with 12 percent. As a society, I gather, we like names that make us think of novels of manners.
The least fave? Nicole Richie and Joel Madden’s son, Sparrow James Midnight, with 37% of the haterade vote. Second place went to Alyson Hannigan and Alexis Denisof’s daughter Satyana. We do not like names that make us think of birds or foreign people.
Agree or disagree? Any other 2009 celeb baby names you think should should be on the best or worst list? There’s a full list of 2009′s celeb boys and girls after the jump.
Congrats to Sarah and her hubby Freddie Prinze, Jr., who welcomed a baby girl on Saturday. The little one’s name is Charlotte Grace (awwww, totally great baby name!), and mother and child are doing well. “The family is over the moon,” says their rep.
The gallery below has a ton of pics of Sarah wearing super-cute maternity clothes at various stages of her pregnancy.
Cute Freddie Prinze Jr., hubby of Sarah Michelle Gellar, has a new gig this fall. After basically doing voice work for the past couple of years, Prinze has landed a role as a regular on the show 24, playing a Marine who wants to follow in the steps of Jack Bauer. I thought that show was cancelled. Huh.
I don’t watch 24 but I’m assuming that Jack Bauer doesn’t spend his time drinking 14 hours a day, serving short stints in the slammer and head-butting people, right? Actually, now that I think of it, that sounds like a good show for Keifer to look into next year when 24 gets axed.
Anyway, good luck to Prinze! This is very timely for him since he and his wife have a baby on the way. Those things get expensive.
Sarah Michelle Gellar gets a visit from hubby Freddie Prinze Jr on the set of her new film, The Wonderful Maladys. She’s being careful to keep her tummy covered — Sarah’s expecting her first kiddo this fall.
Actress Sarah Michelle Gellar is expecting a baby Buffy this fall with husband, Freddie Prinze, Jr.
In addition to the obvious, the couple have been busy over the past few months. Gellar is set to executive produce and star in the HBO pilot, The Wonderful Maladys. Her husband just shot a pilot for ABC titled No Heroics.
Let’s hope one of their shows gets picked up. Kids are expensive and they totally expect to eat two or three times a day!
The former actor, who used to have a career that mattered, has apparently been writing storylines for the WWE recently, but word on the street is that he got fired for leaking storylines to the press.
The official reason for his release is that he couldn’t keep up with the demanding schedule, but inside sources say Vince McMahon was furious with the amount of information being leaked to the press, and he thought Freddie might be involved.
Wow, Freddie must be pretty desperate for work. His only films last year were the indie flop Jack & Jill vs. The World and the animated Delgo, which was the lowest-earning wide-release film ever. And he’s got nada on the agenda for 2009. His wife, Sarah Michelle Gellar, hasn’t been doing much better career-wise either. They can fade into obscurity together! How quaint!
