In an interview with the Los Angeles Times, Kiefer Sutherland, who plays Jack Bauer in the show,

“He’s angrier. He’s working for himself now. His patience to deal with things in a legal fashion doesn’t really exist… opening that up again made me quite nervous in the six months of prepping for the thing,” said Sutherland in the L.A.Times report, referring to the mental state of his character, Jack.
