Freddie Prinze Jr. ripped Kiefer Sutherland last weekend at Comic-Con, saying the "24" actor made him want to quit acting.

I thought he did quit acting.

Prinze told ABC News he was so unhappy filming "24" in 2010 that he almost quit. "I did 24. It was terrible. I hated every moment of it," Prinze said. "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."

But ... he apparently didn't say this to Sutherland's face. Which sort of undermines the claim he would.

Not that there's anything wrong with that since, you know, Kiefer Sutherland seems to get just a tad unhinged now and then.

After Prinze was on "24," he worked with another notoriously hotheaded TV star. "I went and worked for Vince McMahon at the WWE for Christ's sake and it was a crazier job than working with Kiefer.," he said. "But, at least he was cool and tall," Prinze said. "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 (Sutherland) 5-foot-4."

"Cool and tall?"

I think it's becoming clear why Freddie Prinze Jr. doesn't get much work anymore.

No response from Sutherland's people so far.
