Stuck in a dead-end, low-paying job? Then you’ll be glad to know Kiefer Sutherland pockets over half a million dollars for every episode of “24″ he shoots. According to Hello Magazine
24 star Kiefer Sutherland has just been named US TV’s top-paid actor – taking home $550,000 for every outing as counter-terrorist agent Jack Bauer. But TV bosses at Fox, who commission the show, are currently deciding whether to renew its contract after the upcoming season.
“It’s not an inexpensive show on the network books and we also want to finish strong,” said the network’s head of programming. “This is not a show we want to prop up.”
Prop up? Like “The Cleveland Show” and “Dollhouse,” you mean? Jesus Christ. I don’t know what the hell is wrong with Fox. Getting rid of Jack Bauer would be like chopping off your own penis. Sure, you can still walk around and pick stuff up and say stuff without a penis, but when the time to fuck terrorists in the ass comes around, you’re going to be shit outta luck, and then people are going to start pointing fingers. Something to think about, Rupert Murdoch.
