– TMZ ran an article this week with actor and former WWE creative writer Freddie Prinze Jr. bashing actor Keifer Sutherland, who Prinze worked under on the set of 24 back in 2010. Prinze made mention of Vince McMahon when talking about Sutherland:
“I did ’24’ … it was terrible. I hated every moment of it. I just wanted to quit the business after that. So, I just sort of stopped. 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 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.”
