Kiefer Sutherland is having elective surgery to deal with a ruptured cyst near one of his kidneys, temporarily stopping production on his hit Fox show 24.
The medical problem is not considered serious, and the disruption to 24 is expected to be brief.
"We are temporarily suspending production of 24 while our friend and colleague Kiefer Sutherland undergoes a medical procedure," the network says in a statement. "We hope to resume production shortly and do not anticipate any disruption in the broadcast of this season's episodes."

Kiefer Sutherland invested $869,000 in cattle a few years ago – but it turns out the deal was a bunch of bull.
The 24 star is one of several victims of Michael Wayne Carr, a competitive steer-roping promoter and cattle manager, who allegedly bilked investors of hundreds of thousands of dollars, the San Joaquin County, Calif., District Attorney's office contends.
Sutherland was told by a financial advisor that Carr would buy cattle from Mexico and resell them at a huge profit in the U.S. The actor never personally met Carr, who has no prior criminal record. The DA's office says there's no evidence the purchase ever took place. A New Mexico couple who lost $177,000 was also duped with the same story, and a Colorado man lost cattle that was entrusted to Carr, who allegedly sold them, according to prosecutors.

For Kiefer Sutherland, it's case closed on both coasts, no ifs, ands or headbutts.
"We declined to prosecute after a full investigation," Manhattan District Attorney spokeswoman Alicia Maxey Greene tells PEOPLE of the highly publicized alleged cranial collision with a New York fashion designer in May. "That included speaking to the complaining witness, who was quite uncooperative."
Sutherland, 42, is also off the hook with the L.A. City Attorney's office, which investigated the actor for a possible probation violation. Sutherland is currently serving a five-year probation term following a second DUI conviction in 2007.

After a week of silence, Kiefer Sutherland released a statement from his attorney Monday asserting the actor was not to blame in an alleged assault on a fashion designer.

"We are confident, however, that the investigation being conducted by the Manhattan District Attorney's Office and the NYPD will confirm that Kiefer Sutherland was neither the instigator nor a wrongdoer in this incident."
The statement added that "out of respect for this law enforcement process," the actor "will not be making any comment."

Fashion designer Jack McCollough, who was allegedly headbutted by Kiefer Sutherland this week, required surgery for his injuries, his rep tells PEOPLE.
"Mr. McCollough suffered a broken nose in three places as a result of the assault," his rep told PEOPLE exclusively on Friday, refuting reports that the designer merely got scratches on his nose. "He received medical treatment last night after consulting with physicians."
Meanwhile, a source says that McCollough, who's now sporting bandages on his nose, "had to have his nose reset. It's painful and it felt horrible."
The source adds that McCollough is "also pissed off and annoyed that this all happened. He has a collection to do, and has no time to deal with this."
