Kiefer Sutherland

Kiefer Sutherland has revealed that he prefers TV to movies.

The actor shot to global fame with the role of Jack Bauer in the television series 24, which has just been cancelled.

But having worked in both mediums the actor believes that the development of TV in recent years has seen it take over film.

In an interview with Variety the actor said: "[TV is] really the home of the drama - I grew up and the films I wanted to do as an actor were films like One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest and Urban Cowboy. Why don't they make those movies any more?

"The drama got picked up by television, and that's why you're seeing a huge influx of very successful actors looking at television for work."

"When you look at everything from ER to The West Wing to The Sopranos to The Wire to Californication, there's amazing television out there.

"The traditional format of television is obviously changing, as advertising is changing. But I still think it's an unbelievably exciting place to be."
