The son of a film legend who seemed poised for stardom as a teen heartthrob thanks to breakout roles in "Stand By Me" (1986) and "The Lost Boys" (1987), actor Kiefer Sutherland suffered through a period of stagnation in the 1990s. Prior to his career's hibernation, Sutherland was a leading man and peripheral member of the so-called Brat Pack that included Judd Nelson, Emilio Estevez, Anthony Michael Hall and Molly Ringwald. At his peak, he starred in such high-profile fare as "Young Guns" (1988) and "Flatliners" (1990), but a much-publicized breakup with then-fiancée Julia Roberts mere days before their pending nuptials put a serious dent in his celebrity. After that unfortunate time, Sutherland found himself relegated to barely-seen indie films and bottom shelf studio flicks. But after years off the public radar, an adult Sutherland reemerged in heroic fashion as Jack Bauer, an agent in the U.S. Counter Terrorist Unit who goes through hell to avert all manner of national crises, on the successful TV thriller "24" (Fox, 2001-2010). Not only was Sutherland's career resurrected, he vaulted past any heights previously achieved to become a multi-Emmy and Golden Globe winner. With his career back in full swing, Sutherland was able to carry other shows like "Touch" (Fox, 2012-13) and "Designated Survivor" (ABC 2016- ) while solidifying his hard-earned status as television's top star.
