Are you a fan of 24? Well, then I’m sure you are a fan of the actor who plays Jack Bauer, Kiefer Sutherland. And, if you haven’t heard by now (where have you been?!), Jack is back! In honor of Jack Bauer and Kiefer Sutherland, here are five facts that you might not have known about him.
1) Born in London
Kiefer Sutherland was born in London, England to his parents Donald Sutherland and Shirley Douglas. Both parents have appeared in films, but Donald Sutherland has definitely made a huge impact in terms of Hollywood. Though you might not recognize his name, you probably recognize his face since he has appeared in roughly 150 different shows and movies. In fact, he has recently been in The Hunger Games movies as President Snow. (source: imdb.com)
2) Video Game Voice-Overs
Kiefer Sutherland offered up his voice for a handful of different video games, and not just 24: The Game. His voiced was in Call of Duty: World at War, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, and of course 24: The Game. (source: imdb.com)
3) Where did he get that name?
If you’ve ever wondered where “Kiefer” came from, Tvguide.com reports that he was “Named after Warren Kiefer, the screenwriter/director of the film Castle of the Living Dead, which starred Donald Sutherland.”
4) Twin Sister
He has a twin sister, Rachel. Kiefer, however, is seven minutes older (source: foxnews.com). Although Rachel is not an actor, she still works in the film industry as a post-production supervisor (source: comcast.net).
5) Executive Producer
Kiefer Sutherland is just as skilled behind the camera as he is in front of it. Even on the hit show 24, Kiefer did more than just act–he was the Executive Producer as well. In addition to this, he has directed and produced numerous other films, too. (source: thebiographychannel.co.uk)
