Playing in over seventy movies must mean a lot, especially when you come from an artistic family, like Kiefer Sutherland. I personally like him a lot in "A Few Good Men", but the role that really put him on top of my list of favorite actors is his appearance on "24".
After winning the Emmy award for his role in the fifth season on this TV show, he finally got to be equal with his father, another Emmy award winner. And I think that it is right that it happened this way. There are actors that go by only by their looks or their strikes of luck, by getting some good parts in famous movies, but Kiefer Sutherland is the living example that hard work and commitment are a must in this industry, as well.
