Kiefer William Frederick Dempsey George Rufus Sutherland (born 21 December 1966) is an English-born Canadian actor, producer and director. He is perhaps best known for his portrayal of Jack Bauer on the Fox series 24 for which he won an Emmy Award, a Golden Globe award, two Screen Actors Guild Awards, and two Satellite Awards. He currently stars as Martin Bohm in the Fox drama Touch. Sutherland was born in London, the son of Donald Sutherland and Shirley Douglas, both of whom are successful Canadian actors. His ancestry includes Scottish, English, and German. His maternal grandfather was Scottish-born Canadian politician Tommy Douglas, who is widely credited for bringing universal health care to Canada. He is named after American-born director and writer Warren Kiefer, who, under the assumed name of Lorenzo Sabatini, directed Donald Sutherland in his very first feature film, the Italian low-budget horror film Il castello dei morti vivi (Castle of the Living Dead).
