Kiefer Sutherland, after Jack Bauer, his character of 24: "This spy is very different"


The new series starring the famous actor is called 'Rabbit Hole' and it arrives this Monday, March 27, streaming on Paramount+.

Kiefer William Sutherland, now 56 years old, began his career in the '80s, following in the footsteps of his famous father, Donald.

He was in countless emblematic films, but without a doubt his most famous role came in 2001

with Jack Bauer and the series 24.

Now he hopes to repeat the success with

Rabbit Hole

, which

opens this Monday the 27th on Paramount+


It is a thriller where Kiefer plays John Weir, a specialist in corporate espionage.

A group of powerful people, involved in a secret affair, set him up and frame him for a murder he didn't commit.

From there, he will have everything against him, since his opponent controls the world.

It's a huge cyber conspiracy and he must run until he finds out who is behind it all.

Rabbit Hole

title ties directly to the phrase "rabbit hole," which is used by users when they dive into new information online. 

The cast includes Charles Dance, Meta Golding, Enid Graham, Jason Butler Harner, Walt Klink, and Rob Yang. 

The series was co-created by John Requa and Glenn Ficarra, who previously directed the films

I Love You Phillip Morris


Crazy, Stupid, Love,

as well as writing

Bad Santa

"I'm a big fan of thrillers"

Connected via Zoom, Kiefer Sutherland is friendly and well-disposed, beyond the logical limitations of the total time of the talk, since he is in the midst of a marathon of promotional interviews with media from around the world.

Faced with the inevitable question about Argentina, he answers: "I've never been, but I'd love to go. I know it's a beautiful country."

-What did you like about this project when they contacted you?

-I'm a big fan of thrillers, as a genre.

I always liked those


-type characters , and I accepted as soon as I was contacted by the writers Johnny Requa and Glenn Ficarra, who did one of my favorite scripts of the last 20 years, Bad Santa.

They also directed

Crazy stupid love (Crazy and stupid love)

, which I really liked and admired the balance between comedy and drama.

Was that enough for you to say yes?

-For all those reasons, when we talked about doing something together, I was obviously very interested.

And when they described how they wanted to make the series, emulating films like

The Three Days of the Condor, Marathon of Death, All the President's Men


The Last Witness in Spain

, they were all films that I saw when I was a child and that made me dream of making. something like that.

So between his descriptions, the genre itself, and the way he envisioned the character, I was thrilled to be a part of the project.

And when I saw the final script, it blew my mind to see how complex and well balanced everything they had told me was in the first meeting.

From there I couldn't wait to start filming.

"I'm not looking to stand out"

-Was it an intense or relaxed shoot?

Bah, it's never laid back, is it?

-It's funny that you say it's never relaxed, because it was the most relaxed thing I've ever seen.

When we were doing


, for example

, it took us 7 and a half days to shoot one episode

, or 15 days to shoot two.

We were very efficient and worked 12 hour days, but we were always on schedule.

On the other hand, in

Rabbit Hole

we had 9-10 days for each episode, so from my point of view it was quite relaxed.

Also, John and Glenn are two very very very laid back guys.

You're the only one who asked me this, so I'm telling you that I was always waiting for the bullfights to start, but there weren't any.

They work like this

-How do you and your agent choose a project: are they looking to distance themselves from the previous one or do they have no problem repeating the style or type of character?

-In this case the character is very different from Jack Bauer, for example, and I love thrillers, as I said before.

I wouldn't stop doing a drama just because I did a drama before.

I'm not looking to stand out and that doesn't worry me


I feel like the characters are dynamically very different.

The world we live in is also different in the context of both series, if we talk about



Rabbit Hole


I can't wait for people to see it!
