June 12, 2014 (Newswire) - The editors of TV GUIDE MAGAZINE have named "TV's 24 Greatest Action Heroes Ever!" in its current issue on newsstands from July 16 - 29, 2014, with Kiefer Sutherland photographed on the set of "24″ for the cover.
"I've spent a third of my career playing Jack Bauer," Kiefer Sutherland says on the London set of 24: Live Another Day. Heading into the show's 200th episode (June 16, 9/8c, Fox), the actor remains fully invested.
Even when a TV hero is having a rough day - and 24's Jack Bauer has had plenty of them - our nights are made immeasurably better by their tireless efforts. Generations of viewers have slept more peacefully after cheering on their favorite do-gooders, whether patrolling the Western plains or navigating the farthest reaches of space, battling terrorists from the underworld or vanquishing monsters from the netherworld. In its pages, TV GUIDE MAGAZINE's editors champion the champions. From bionic special agents to archery experts to danger junkies like cover boy Jack Bauer, television has given us some of the coolest, sexiest and ass-kicking-ist men and women of action. Plus, some of the shows' stars reveal what it means to save the day.
