Anyone who’s ever worked with a big actor probably knows there’s a diva element they’ll have to face, regardless of how much you like them beforehand. In Freddie Prinze Jr.’s case, he was apparently appalled at the behavior of 24 co-star Kiefer Sutherland.
“I hated every moment of it,” said 38-year-old Prinze. “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 just wanted to quit the business after that. So, I just sort of stopped.”
It may be interesting to note that professionalism usually includes keeping your opinions of co-workers out of the press, Freddie…
In response to this statement, Sutherland’s reps told the media, “Kiefer worked with Freddie Prinze, Jr. more than five years ago, and this is the first he has heard of Freddie‘s grievances,” Monday afternoon. “Kiefer enjoyed working with Freddie and wishes him the best.”
If you’ve seen Courtney Love in anything she’s acted, you’ll probably agree that she isn’t terrible. In The People vs. Larry Flynt, she managed to pull off a ditzier version of herself without losing a sense of human vulnerability. In Man on the Moon, she plays the lovable, supportive and romantic girlfriend of Andy Kaufman. It’s recently been reported that Love will now play a role as a pre-school teacher in Sons of Anarchy on FX this fall.
Marilyn Manson, on the other hand, hasn’t had such luck landing high profile roles. This may actually be a turning point for the controversial musician. In Sons, Manson will play a white supremacist named Ron Tully who Jax recruits for his powerbase in prison.
Manson said, “Sons of Anarchy has been a big part of my life, as well as my fathers. I will be involved in what will probably be remembered as the most amazing piece of television cinema.” While we’re not entirely sure that is true, we definitely can’t wait to see him this fall for the final season of the epic FX drama.
If you haven’t seen the first trailer, you’re in for a wild ride. This movie is turning out to be the next generation in Marvel movie making, with big names like Vin Diesel and Bradley Cooper joining the team of Hollywood superstars who have jumped on the Marvel bandwagon and comedy sci-fi superhero action flicks becoming the new standard after the release of The Avengers a couple years ago.
Other new faces we see are The Walking Dead‘s Michael Rooker, Sean Gunn of Gilmore Girls fame, and Lee Pace (Halt and Catch Fire, Pushing Daisies) as Ronan the Accuser, our villain, finally uttering some sinister lines.
