BBC One will air ‘Young Guns’ this evening, the Western starring Emilio Estevez, Kiefer Sutherland, Charlie Sheen and Lou Diamond Phillips. In this version of the legend of Billy the Kid, the young William H Bonney joins a wealthy rancher’s gang of young guns. When the rancher is murdered by a ruthless landowner, the gang swear revenge, but their vigilante actions put them on the wrong side of the law ‒ and make Bonney the most wanted man in the West. Kiefer is also well known for starring in ’24’ and other classics.

He has also made a name for himself in Hollywood as a fan of partying, something which angered a co-star of his.

In 2019, Freddie Prinze Jnr, who starred in ’24’ alongside Mr Sutherland, said he almost quit acting while working on the show.

He claimed it was because of Mr Sutherland, who he described as “the most unprofessional dude in the world.”

Mr Prinze told ABC News: “I did ’24’, it was terrible. I hated every moment of it.

“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.”

Mr Prinze, made the comments while promoting his new Disney XD series ‘Star Wars Rebels’.

He dropped off the map for a while after ’24’ and even ventured into other projects.

He added: “I 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.”

In an interview with The Times last week, Mr Sutherland discussed his partying days.

The actor has three bird tattoos to represent the three times he has been in prison – the most recent was a 48-day sentence in 2007 for drink-driving.

He spoke of how the tattoo was done to help remind him of mistakes he has made in the past.

Mr Sutherland said: “I was never going to put myself in that position again. And these birds were going to remind me to smarten up.”

He added: “I had a great time. I’ll make no bones about it. There are moments where I embarrassed myself and did some things I really regret and I wish I hadn’t put myself in those positions.

“But the great stories I have in my life and great times with my friends were certainly centred around a bar, having a drink. I’m not going to pretend I didn’t do it.”

He also discussed the relationship he has with his father, admitting that they wish they spent more time together.

Donald Sutherland is also a well known actor, having starred in ‘The Italian Job’ and ‘The Hunger Games’, among other films.

Mr Sutherland spoke about his father, admitting he wished they spent more time together.

He added: “I think both of us would say we wish we spent more time together and that’s just the truth.”

But he also shared a great memory – the time his father took him to meet David Bowie backstage at a concert.

Mr Sutherland explained: “We knocked on the door. And Bowie said, ‘Donald, I am so glad to see you. Oh, you’ve brought your family?’ I think I interrupted what was going to be a very fun night for the two of them out on the town.”
