Q What can you tell me about Kiefer Sutherland, star of 24? He never seems to be in the newspaper with scandalous headlines, like so many actors.
—Denise J., Prescott, Ariz.

Sutherland, 40, made headlines in 1991 when he was engaged to actress Julia Roberts and she called off their wedding, alleging that he'd been unfaithful to her. The son of actor Donald Sutherland, he was born in London and grew up in Toronto. The single father of a 19-year-old daughter, he calls his role on 24 "one of the best experiences I have ever had as an actor." That's especially meaningful considering that he has more than 50 film roles to his credit.
