THE SENTINEL

KIEFER SUTHERLAND stars as David Breckinridge, a Secret Service agent assigned to investigate a plot to kill the president.

Sutherland first collaborated with Michael Douglas when the latter produced the 1990 film "Flatliners," which Sutherland headlined with Julia Roberts, Kevin Bacon and William Baldwin.

Sutherland currently stars as Jack Bauer in the fifth critically acclaimed season of the Fox hit "24," for which he has won a Golden Globe® Award, a SAG Award™, two Emmy® nominations and a Golden Globe nomination. The show, which also won a Golden Globe Award for Best Drama, received its highest ratings to date for its fourth season.

In 2004 Sutherland starred in the independent period piece "River Queen" in New Zealand, starring Samantha Morton and directed by Vincent Ward. That year Sutherland also starred in the Warner Bros. film "Taking Lives," opposite Angelina Jolie and Ethan Hawke, and provided the narration for the Warner Bros. film, "NASCAR: The Imax Experience." In 2003 he played painter Paul Gauguin in "Paradise Found," and in 2002 starred with Colin Farrell in Fox's "Phone Booth," directed by Joel Schumacher. Sutherland starred with Robert Carlyle in the 2001 World War II drama "To End All Wars," which screened successfully at both the Toronto and Telluride Film Festivals in 2002. Based on the best-selling book Through the Valley of the Kwai, the film is an account of life as a POW in a Southeast Asian prison camp.

In 1998, Sutherland starred in Showtime's critically acclaimed original picture "A Soldier's Sweetheart," which premiered as a gala screening at the 1998 Toronto International Film Festival.

A veteran of more than fifty films, Sutherland has been starring in movies since 1984's "The Bay Boy," which won him and director/writer Daniel Petrie Genie Award nominations.
