Film Career: Sutherland had roles in dozens of movies prior to 24, including The Lost Boys, Stand by Me, A Few Good Men, Flatliners, and A Time To Kill.
Transition Role: 24, 2001
Small-Screen Success: Sutherland found award-worthy ground playing the iconic Jack Bauer, a role that brought him an Emmy, a Golden Globe, and two Screen Actors Guild Awards. (He was also nominated for six more Emmys, five more Globes, and four more SAG awards for his portrayal of Bauer.) Since the series wrapped in 2010, he's dabbled in movies again but has mainly focused on another Fox drama Touch while piquing 24 loyalists' interest with occasional updates about the possibility of a highly anticipated feature-film adaptation.
