Take note, aspiring heroes. ’24: Live Another Day’ star Jack Bauer is THE #1 greatest action hero! Was there ever any question?
For over a decade, Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) has captivated audiences as the THE guy you need when a crisis strikes. Jack’s fearlessness and ability to save the day regardless of the situation was what made 24 so thrilling when it aired from 2001 to 2010. And now, Jack has returned in the limited series run, 24: Live Another Day, so it’s no wonder he was named the greatest action hero on television. Jack is back and we really wish he’d never go away.
Jack Bauer — Greatest Action Hero Ever
Jack was named the #1 greatest action hero on television by TV Guide Magazine in their greatest action heroes issue. He beat out heroes like Buffy Summers, Adam West and MacGyver for the top spot on the list.
However, with all Jack has done — from uncovering terrorist plots and assassination attempts — it’s hard to believe that anyone else would even have a chance at #1.
Jack’s alter-ego, Kiefer Sutherland, knows exactly why Jack is a hero, even if his methods seem a bit too rogue for a normal person.
“Jack is heroic for the reasons he’s always been — he’s completely committed, he’s got enormous integrity and he still slams through windows and doors to protect what he believes in,” Kiefer told the magazine.

When Jack returned in 24: Live Another Day, he discovered an assassination plot on President Heller (William Devane). He’s also currently trying to prevent London from being reduced to rubble from Margot Al-Harazi’s (Michelle Fairley) drone attacks.
With Jack, Chloe (Mary Lynn Rajskub) and new agent Kate Morgan (Yvonne Strahovski) on the case, we know Jack will find a way to save the world, but it won’t be easy. Kiefer reveals that the final four episodes of the series are going to be EPIC.
“We left Season 8 open-ended,” Kiefer told TV Guide Magazine. “Now we’re going for closure. And let me tell you, it ain’t gonna be tied up with a bow.”
24: Live Another Day airs Mondays at 9:00 p.m. ET. Tune in to see why Jack Bauer is the greatest action hero ever!
