Jack Bauer is back, dammit! Kiefer Sutherland graces the cover of the upcoming issue of Entertainment Weekly. They've also released a behind the scenes featurette for fans of the series to check out. In an interview with the Sutherland he said,
“It was very stressful, making the choice to come back. That sense of responsibility to the show has not dissipated at all. When we started out, I said to [director Jon Cassar] to watch me like a hawk. If there was something that wasn’t feeling right, don’t wait to see if it works its way out. I was very scared I couldn’t remember Jack. It had been awhile.”
He went on to talk about his "Dammit" catchphrase, explaining,
“No one ever wrote a ‘dammit’ or anything. It was a button to a scene that I would just kind of throw in as a nervous reaction to whatever was happening. And then it just became this thing.”
The 12 episode event will premiere on FOX on May 5th!
