Date of Birth : Dec 21st 1966
The spitting image of his father, Donald Sutherland, this young, square-faced actor seems due for major success in the 1990s. He handles starring roles and supporting parts equally well, and to date he’s avoided typecasting.
First appearing on-screen in Max Dugan Returns (1983), a bit part with his father) and 1984’s The Bay Boy he was widely noticed as the adolescent tough in Stand By Me (1986). In 1987, a creepy turn as a young vampire in The Lost Boys cemented his burgeoning-star status. More ensemble films with hot young actors followed, including Young Guns (1988), its 1990 sequel, and Flatliners (also 1990), which costarred Julia Roberts, to whom he was briefly engaged; the last-minute cancellation of their planned Hollywood wedding was headline fodder for months.
He stars as Jack Bauer in the hit TV series 24.
