Been wonderin’ whatever happened to Freddie Prinze Jr.?

According to Freddie, Kiefer Sutherland nearly turned him off of acting.

The “She’s All That” star told ABC News at San Diego Comic-Con that working alongside Sutherland in 2010 on “24” almost led him to quit acting altogether.

"I did '24,' it was terrible. I hated every moment of it," said Freddie. “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."

Freddie, who is now promoting his new Disney XD series, “Star Wars Rebels,” said that after “24” he “went and worked for Vince McMahon at the WWE for Christ's sake and it was a crazier job than working with Kiefer.”

“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. 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.”
