Lowest Rated: 3% Twelve (2010)

Birthday: Dec 21, 1966

Birthplace: London, England, UK

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.

QUOTES FROM Kiefer Sutherland CHARACTERS

John Henry Clayton says: I did not choose it!

John Henry Clayton says: If I was lookin' for trouble you'd already know it.

John Henry Clayton says: The thought of coming back to you was the only thing that got me through that god damn war.

Ben Carson says: Don't make me threaten you!

Charlie Hogan says: I still don't think we should go.

Ace Merrill says: Okay, okay. You've stated your position clearly. Now I'm gonna state mine: get in the fucking car, now!

John says: Those bitches have locked themselves in their bedrooms and are now taking baths. Is everyone in your family stark raving mad?

Dr. Peter Morgan says: Why doctors have to steal medical supplies from their own damn hospital so that they can keep their patients alive. I think the TV networks really should take a look at this.

General W.R. Monger says: Wait! Don't press that button!

The President says: Why?

General W.R. Monger says: It will send out all of are nucular weapons!

The President says: Then what button gives me a latte.

General W.R. Monger says: That would be the one on the left.

The President says: What idiot designed this!

General W.R. Monger says: You did sir.

The President says: Okay, than go fire some one!

Ace Merrill says: What are you gonna do? Shoot us all?

Gordie Lachance says: No, Ace. Just you.

Gordie Lachance says: My brother gave me that

Gordie Lachance says: My brother gave me that.

Ace Merrill says: Now your giving it to me

Ace Merrill says: Now your giving it to me.

Gordie Lachance says: Come on man, It's Mine!

Ace Merrill says: Let's play ball!

Michael says: ''I can't beat your bike.''

Michael says: I can't beat your bike.

Michael Emerson says: I can't beat your bike.

David says: ''You don't need to beat me. You just need to keep up.''

David says: You don't need to beat me. You just need to keep up.

David says: You don't have to beat me, Michael. You've just gotta try and keep up.

Ace Merrill says: Suck my fat one.

Ace Merrill says: Wheaaaatooooooooooooooonnnn!!!!!

Ace Merrill says: Wheaaaatoooooooooonnnn!

Ace Merrill says: We're gonna get you for this.

Chris Chambers says: Maybe you will, maybe you won't.

Ace Merrill says: Oh, we will.

Ace Merrill says: What are you gonna do? Shoot us all?

Gordie Lachance says: No, Ace. Just you.

The Caller says: Isn't it funny? You hear a phone ring and it could be anybody. But ringing phone has to be answered, doesn't it?

Ace Merrill says: What, are you going to shoot all of us?

Gordie Lachance says: No Ace, just you.

Prince says: Your fight is with me, you miserable mouse! Not a defenseless old soldier!

Ace Merrill says: Would you both just shut the fuck up. If either one of you had $2,000 I'd kill ya both.

David says: Now you know what we are, now you know what you are. You'll never grow old, Michael, and you'll never die. But you must feed!

Narrator says: So you're born in the capital of the world and you can never escape. And that's how it is because that's how everyone wants it to be. It is all about want. No one needs anything here. It is about when you wake up in the morning and the snow is already coming down and it's bright between the buildings where the sun falls but already dark where the shadows are. And it's all about the want. What do you want? Because if you don't want something you've got nothing. You are adrift. You're washed away and then buried under the snow in shadow. And when in the spring the snow melts, no one will remember where you were frozen and buried. And you will no longer be anywhere.

Dr. Daniel Schreber says: Remember John, never talk to strangers!

Narrator says: You will not be remembered if you die now. You'll be buried and mourned by a few and what more can you ask for? The world will spiral from underneath you and you are either too smart or too dumb to find God. Maybe you are angry. Only because the way out is through love. And you are just horny and lonely.
