Sutherland's first film and memorable turn as a bully in Stand By Me led to a string of successful ensemble movies, including The Lost Boys (1987), Young Guns (1988), and Flatliners (1990).

Kiefer is the son of movie star Donald Sutherland.
Since 2001, Sutherland is most widely associated with the role of Jack Bauer, on the critically acclaimed television series 24.
