One of my favourite actress – Elisha Cuthbert – might be coming back to her familiar role in a movie adaptation of the hit ‘real time’ drama 24, but only if her character plays a more significant part. The Canadian star used to play the part of Kimberly Bauer, the on-screen daughter of Kiefer Sutherland’s agent Jack Bauer of the Counter Terrorist Unit in Los Angeles.
However, Elisha would prefer that the TV producers let her share some of the action with her busy on-screen dad. She says: “There’s definitely room for (a movie). But it depends on whether or not Kiefer can take it any more! The poor guy’s been hacking away at Jack Bauer for years.
“If he’s into it, it’ll be great, because everything he does is awesome [damn straight Elisha!]. People love to watch my character Kim, but she’s also a bit of a spanner in the works and I wouldn’t want her to be that [like that infamous cougar scene]. Three years ago I wanted her to be Jack’s partner and kick ass [Kim was working at CTU], but to the producers it was like, ‘We’ve got to be realistic about this.’ But if the movie comes round and it works to have her there, then I’d love to play her again.”
It would be fantastic if she came back in the role of Kim Bauer in the highly anticipated movie based on my favourite television show. I am aware that her current film, Captivity, is considered to be the worst movie in her short career as a serious film actress but to return to her famous role, as daughter of Jack Bauer is a dream came true.
