Kiefer Sutherland begins his 48 day sentence tonight after turning himself into Glendale city jail. He is serving his time for his second DUI, this one from September. The actor will get his own cell and have to participate in daily chores like laundry and kitchen duty and will wear the typical orange jumpsuit. He will sadly be spending his birthday and the upcoming holidays behind bars (unless he gets lucky and somehow works the Nicole Richie overcrowded deal to be released early).
The bad news is this is more of a reason to expect 24 not to return anytime soon. As if the writers' strike wasn't cause enough, we can't have 24 without Jack Bauer. Finally, it's too bad we already posted our Best of 2007 Mug Shot Poll because we think Kiefer could have given Shia some tough competition.
