Due to the resent show "24" I am affirming that Keifer Sutherland is the new Chuck Norris because Keifer Sutherland as Jack Bauer is the most hardcore character in television today

The Pro says that Keith Sutherland is the new Chuck Norris. I do not agree. Chuck Norris is the one and only badass to ever be on TV. He revolutionized the mid day television world by given people a glimpse of a heroic badass that we all could depend on after a long day of school. Texas Walker Ranger showed that a dude could kick the crap out of fools in jeans and a cowboy hat, maintaining the respectable and classy image that is Chuck Norris. Jack Bauer needs amazing gadgets and weapons to despise his foes. While jack takes 24 hours, chuck takes 30 minutes to destroy his enemies. I feel that if Keith Sutherland's face was presented to a citizen on the street, the majority will not register who he is. However Norris being around as long as he has been, makes him a household name that everyone can relate too. A kind sheriff that doesn't need to throw his weapon and badge around to prove he is a badass. Where Jack Bauer has died multiple times in his series, Chuck has never died in his series or his movies. Also, Chuck is by far the better actor by his multiple films and people beg him for guest appearance (ie Dodge Ball where the fate of the average joes lay on the decision of chuck Norris-even a badass can be totally humorous where as Keith cannot). And the reason he is the biggest badass is because people create awesome jokes about Norris's indestructibility (ie chuck norris's tears cure cancer). May I also add that he is in many workout videos and commercials forever maintaining his badass image along with a crisp cut beard that women love and men desire. Need I say more?

Jack Bauer has never died in any of the seasons, nor he uses any high tech gadgets. All Jack Bauer ever uses is a hand gun, and a cell phone. The rest of the time Jack basically improvs like McGeiver. Sure Chuck Norris has apeared in Dodge Ball and did a funny line or 2, but if you have ever seen Keifer in his other roles? He is one funny person, take for example in the "Lost Boys", his role has so much humor in it. And that role was a major role, compared to Norris's 2 liner

You claim to be a jack bauer fan but don't even know the facts. In season 2 he was tortured to death. You obviously don't really love him because you would know that he died and then they revived him. And then another time he faked his death, which Chuck Norris would never have to do because he never reaches that point with his foes. And multiple times jack bauer uses steyer aug weapons and bombs to kill his enemies. Where Chuck Norris never gets caught by his enemies, jack seems to be always in the hands of them just barely getting out in some unrealistic Hollywood way. Once again I note that Keifer is not a household name or recognizable by the majority of the population. Chuck Norris has proven his ability by years of acting and butt kicking. Keifer is not the new Chuck and there will never be a man like Chuck. You are blinded by the cool explosions and drama of a 24 episodes lame beeping sound like a bomb is going off every time they return from a commercial. Chuck Norris paved the way for wanna be bad asses like Jack Bauer. You simply cannot out argue me in who is the bigger badass because Chuck essentially created the badass drama and his resume speaks for itself.
