Out of The Hollywood Reporter comes news that Kiefer Sutherland has just inked a deal with 20th Century Fox Television, which is set to begin in June, calls for the actor to continue on the hit Fox drama “24” for three more years and includes a two-year development deal for Sutherland’s soon-to-be-launched production banner.
Sutherland is a huge hit at the studio and even plans on taking his talents to the big screen and showing he has major movie cred with the upcoming thriller The Sentinel, of which I just added eight clips from the film to the RopeofSilicon Media Gallery!
THR tells us the details on the pact were a bit sketchy, but sources pegged the acting portion alone at more than $40 million for the three seasons, which could make Sutherland the highest paid actor in drama series.
Want my opinion? I am pumped, because this means more “24” to review on DVD and those sets make for good watchin’!
