For eight year Kiefer Sutherland entertained millions as Jack Bauer on the Fox hit “24.” Now, the actor is working with Fox again on his new show “Touch” that debuts on March 19th.

Fox has been ahead of the game for a while now when it comes to striving for an eco-friendly set. Sutherland reveals that going green was actually an idea that originated from the staff on “24.”

The actor said, “It’s been a Fox thing, actually started by one of the people in the production office on ’24,’ and I was very proud of that. Fox has been very responsible in making a real effort to try and leave as small a carbon footprint as possible.”

Sutherland also does his part at home by recycling. “I do as much as I can, everything that everyone else is doing — recycling and separating the garbage and everything else.”

For those of you who miss Jack Bauer, be pleased to know that a film version of the show could be released around Christmas time next year.
