Kiefer Sutherland has surgery



Keifer He's been tortured, shot and memorably last season gassed with a lethal nerve agent. But nothing has slowed Jack Bower down on 24 -- until now.

People reports that Kiefer Sutherland is having surgery (elective) for a ruptured cyst that's near one of his kidneys. That will temporarily stop production on the hit Fox show. The stoppage is expected to be brief.

A spokesman for the actor says "While Kiefer Sutherland is frustrated to miss even one day of work, he and Fox decided together that it would be best to complete this minor elective procedure now as a precaution as opposed to six weeks from now when production wraps."
