Kiefer Sutherland has said that he wishes Charlie Sheen the best.

The 24 star, who appeared in the movies Young Guns and Three Musketeers with Sheen, was asked during an appearance on The View this week for his thoughts on the controversial actor.

"I know Charlie as a really funny, talented, fiercely loyal guy," he told Barbara Walters. "Clearly people are concerned about him and worried about him."

Sutherland, who admitted to not knowing much about recent events surrounding Sheen, went on to say that he had been "touched" by a recent interview that Sheen's father Martin did with a British outlet, where he had been asked about his son's behaviour.

"He, as a father, said, 'You have to love more'," recalled Sutherland. "And as a father, that really touched me."

He added: "With regards to Charlie, he's one of those cats that always seems to land on his feet and I wish him the best, and care a lot about him. Like a lot of people, you get worried, but it's not something I know a whole lot about."

Sutherland recently confirmed that a movie version of 24 has been slated for a cinema release in summer 2012. The actor starred as Jack Bauer in the Fox television show from 2001 to 2010.

Meanwhile, a recent report suggested that rumors Sheen could return to his job on Two and a Half Men were inaccurate. Neither CBS or Sheen, who will hit the road for a live tour next month, has commented.
