Kiefer Sutherland is a big fan of British television, in particular 'The Office' and 'Coronation Street'
Kiefer Sutherland feels like David Brent.
The '24' actor is a big fan of British TV and particularly loves watching 'The Office' because he can see similarities between himself and the embarrassing office manager played by Ricky Gervais.
The Canadian star said: "When I was a kid I always enjoyed 'Coronation Street' and more recently 'The Office'. I love it but I find it very difficult to watch - especially when I see myself in David Brent and think 'I've done that.' "
The 43-year-old actor also admitted he no longer finds playing Counter Terrorism Unit Agent Jack Bauer as easy as he once did because of the injuries he has sustained over the years.
He told the Radio Times magazine: "All of the many injuries I've sustained on set have thankfully healed, but I'm not as fast as I was, I'm not as strong so Jack has had to get older and slower with me.
"How do I unwind? I sleep as much as possible."
