színes, magyarul beszélő, amerikai thriller, 2002., hossz: 78 perc
Megcsörren egy utcai telefon, egy férfi felveszi. És majdnem belehal. És örökre megváltozik az élete. Mert egy mesterlövész hívja, aki a környező toronyházak egyik ablakából éppen rá céloz. Rég vadászik a férfira, mindent tud róla, ismeri a feleségét, a szeretőjét, a titkait és a vágyait. Beszélgetni akar a férfi bűneiről: büntet és jutalmaz. Habozás nélkül öl és pontosan céloz. A férfi nem teheti le a telefont, csak vár és válaszol. Szeretné túlélni ezt a hívást; szeretne túljárni a lesipuskás eszén. Közben megérkezik a rendőrség, vezetőjük tárgyalni kezd a férfival, akinek a fülkéje előtt egy halott hever. Azt hiszi, ő tettes. Nem ért semmit. És az a nyugodt, kegyetlen hang a telefonban, egyre újabb követelésekkel áll elő...

Colin James Farrell (Dublin, 1976. május 31. –) Golden Globe-díjas ír színész. Számos amerikai kasszasikert produkáló filmben főszerepet játszott, többek között a Miami Vice-ban, A fülkében és a S.W.A.T. – Az elit kommandó című mozifilmekben. Feltűnést keltett a 2008-ban bemutatott Erőszakik című filmben, amely az első olyan főszerepe, amelyet a kritika is maradéktalanul értékelt. Méltó partnere volt Brendan Gleesonnak és Ralph Fiennesnek.
Colin Farrell Castleknock-ban született, Dublinban, Rita és Eamon Farrell gyermekeként, aki labdarúgó volt, és a Shamrock Rovers FC- ben játszott.
Colin Farrell (I)
Colin Farrell is one of Ireland's best rising stars in Hollywood and abroad today. His film presence has been filled with memorable roles that range from an inwardly tortured hit man, to an adventurous explorer, a determined-but-failing writer, and the greatest military leader in history. Farrell was born on May 31, 1976 in Castleknock, Dublin, Ireland, to Rita (Monaghan) and Eamon Farrell. His father and uncle were both professional athletes, and for a while, it looked like Farrell would follow in their footsteps. Farrell auditioned for a part in the Irish Boy Band, Boyzone, but it didn't work out. After dropping out of The Gaiety School of Acting, Farrell was cast in _"Ballykissangel" (1996)_ (qv), a BBC television drama. "Ballykissangel" was not his first role on screen. Farrell had previously been in _The War Zone (1999)_ (qv), directed by 'Tim Roth (I)' (qv) and had appeared in the independent film _Drinking Crude (1997)_ (qv). Farrell was soon to move on to bigger things. Exchanging his usually thick Dublin accent for a light Texas drawl, Farrell acted in the gritty _Tigerland (2000)_ (qv), directed by 'Joel Schumacher' (qv). Starring Farrell amongst a number of other budding young actors, the film portrays a group of new recruits being trained for the war in Vietnam. Farrell played the arrogant soldier Boz, drafted into the army and completely spiteful of authority. The film was praised by critics, but did not make much money at the box office. It was Farrell's first big role on film, and certainly not his last. Farrell followed up with _American Outlaws (2001)_ (qv), where he played the notorious outlaw Jesse James with 'Scott Caan' (qv), son of legendary actor 'James Caan (I)' (qv), in the role of Cole Younger. The film was a box office flop and failure with the critics. Immediately, Farrell returned to the war drama film that had made him famous. Co-starring in the war film _Hart's War (2002)_ (qv) opposite 'Bruce Willis' (qv), Farrell played the young officer captured by the enemy. The film was another failure. Farrell struck gold when he was cast in the 'Steven Spielberg' (qv) film _Minority Report (2002)_ (qv) that same year. Set in a futuristic time period, Farrell played the character of Danny Witwer, a young member of the Justice Department who is sent after 'Tom Cruise' (qv)'s character. The film was a smash hit, and praised by critics. Farrell continued this success when he reunited with 'Joel Schumacher' (qv) on the successful thriller _Phone Booth (2002)_ (qv). Farrell played the role of the victim who is harassed by an unseen killer ('Kiefer Sutherland' (qv)) and is made to reveal his sins to the public. 2003 was a big year for Farrell. He starred in the crime thriller _The Recruit (2003)_ (qv) as a young CIA man mentored by an older CIA veteran ('Al Pacino (I)' (qv)). Pacino later stated that Farrell was the best actor of his generation. Farrell certainly continued to be busy that year with _Daredevil (2003)_ (qv), which actually allowed him to keep his thick Irish accent. The film was another success for Farrell, as was the crime film _S.W.A.T. (2003)_ (qv) where Farrell starred opposite 'Samuel L. Jackson' (qv) and 'LL Cool J' (qv). Farrell also acted in the Irish black comedy film _Intermission (2003)_ (qv) and appeared another Irish film _Veronica Guerin (2003)_ (qv) which reunited him with 'Joel Schumacher' (qv) once again. The following year, Farrell acted in what is his most infamous film role yet: the title role in the mighty 'Oliver Stone (I)' (qv) film epic _Alexander (2004)_ (qv), which is a character study of Alexander the Great as he travels across new worlds and conquers all the known world before him. Farrell donned a blond wig and retained his Irish accent, and gave a fine performance as Alexander. However, both he and the film were criticized. Despite being one of the highest grossing films internationally and doing a good job at the DVD sales, Farrell did not come out of the experience without a few hurts. Farrell attempted to rebound with his historical film _The New World (2005)_ (qv). Reuniting with "Alexander" star 'Christopher Plummer (I)' (qv), and also acting with 'Christian Bale' (qv), Farrell played the character of the brave explorer John Smith, who would make first contacts with the Native peoples. The film did not do well at the box office, though critics praised the film's stunning appearance and cinematography. Farrell returned to act in 'Michael Mann (I)' (qv)'s film _Miami Vice (2006)_ (qv) alongside 'Jamie Foxx' (qv). The film was a film adaptation of the famous television series, and did reasonably well at the box office. Farrell also acted in _Ask the Dust (2006)_ (qv) with 'Salma Hayek' (qv) and 'Donald Sutherland (I)' (qv), though the film did not receive much distribution. The next year, Farrell acted alongside 'Ewan McGregor' (qv) in the 'Woody Allen' (qv) film _Cassandra's Dream (2007)_ (qv) which received mixed reviews from critics. Farrell followed up with the hilarious black comedy _In Bruges (2008)_ (qv). Written and directed by Irish theatre director 'Martin McDonagh' (qv), the film stars Farrell and 'Brendan Gleeson' (qv) as two Irish hit men whose latest assignment went wrong, leaving them to hide out in Bruges, Belgium. The film has been one of Farrell's most praised work, and he was nominated for a Golden Globe. As well as _In Bruges (2008)_ (qv), Farrell acted alongside 'Edward Norton (I)' (qv) in the crime film _Pride and Glory (2008)_ (qv) which was not as successful as the former film. As well as working with charity, and speaking at the Special Olympics World Games in 2007, he has donated his salary for 'Terry Gilliam' (qv)'s _The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus (2009)_ (qv) to 'Heath Ledger' (qv)'s little daughter (who was left nothing in a will that had not been updated in time). Ledger had originally been cast in the film and was replaced by Farrell, Johnny Depp, and Jude Law. The film was a critical and financial success, and Farrell also played a small role in _Crazy Heart (2009)_ (qv) which had the Dubliner playing a country singer. Farrell even sang a few songs for the film's soundtrack. As well as those small roles, Farrell took the lead role in the war film _Triage (2009)_ (qv). Farrell incredibly lost forty-four pounds to play the role of a war photographer who must come to terms with what he has experienced in Kurdistan. While the film was finely made, with excellent performances from all involved, the film has received almost no distribution. Farrell's other leading role that year was in 'Neil Jordan (I)' (qv)'s Irish film _Ondine (2009)_ (qv), which had Farrell playing an imaginative fisherman who thinks he has caught a mermaid in his net. Since the mid-2000's, Farrell has cleaned up his act, and far from being a Hollywood hell raiser and party animal, Farrell has shown himself to be a respectable and very talented actor.
Forest Steven Whitaker (Longview, 1961. július 15. –) Oscar-díjas amerikai színész, rendező és producer. Legnagyobb szakmai sikerét a 2006-ban bemutatott Az utolsó skót király című filmjével érte el, amelyben Uganda hírhedt diktátorát, Idi Amin Dadát alakította. Alakításért nemcsak a legjobb férfi főszereplőnek járó Oscar-díjat érdemelte ki, hanem Golden Globe-díjjal és BAFTA-díjjal is jutalmazták. Ő az Oscar történetének negyedik olyan afroamerikai színésze, aki a legjobb férfi főszereplőként kapta meg az Oscar-díjat, rajta kívül eddig csak Sidney Poitier, Denzel Washington és Jamie Foxx vehette át díjat ebben a kategóriában. További emlékezetes filmjei a Bird - Charlie Parker élete és a Szellemkutya című alkotások. Visszatérő szerepet kapott a The Shield című amerikai sorozatban, amiben Jon Kavanaugh hadnagyot játssza el.
Forest Steven Whitaker has packaged a king-size talent into his hulking 6' 2", 220 lb. frame. He won an Academy Award for his performance as Ugandan dictator Idi Amin in the 2006 film The Last King of Scotland, and has also won a Golden Globe and a BAFTA. He is the fourth African-American male to win an Academy Award for Best Actor, following in the footsteps of Sidney Poitier, Denzel Washington, and Jamie Foxx. Whitaker was born on July 15, 1961 in Longview, Texas, to Laura Francis (Smith), a special education teacher, and Forest Steven Whitaker, an insurance salesman. His family moved to South Central Los Angeles in 1965. The athletically-inclined Whitaker initially found his way into college via a football scholarship. Later, however, he transferred to USC where he set his concentration on music and earned two more scholarships training as an operatic tenor. This, in turn, led to another scholarship at Berkeley with a renewed focus on acting and the performing stage. Whitaker made his film debut at the age of 21 in the raucous comedy _Fast Times at Ridgemont High (1982)_ (qv) wherein he played, quite naturally, a footballer. He went on to play another sports-oriented student, a wrestler, in his second film _Vision Quest (1985)_ (qv). He gained experience on TV as well with featured spots on such varied shows as _"Diff'rent Strokes" (1978)_ (qv) and _"Cagney & Lacey" (1981)_ (qv), not to mention the TV-movie Civil War epic _"North and South" (1985)_ (qv) and its sequel. The movie that truly put him on the map was _The Color of Money (1986)_ (qv). His one big scene as a naive-looking pool player who out-hustles 'Paul Newman (I)' (qv)'s Fast Eddie Felson was pure electricity. This led to more visible roles in the "A" class films _Platoon (1986)_ (qv), _Stakeout (1987)_ (qv), and _Good Morning, Vietnam (1987)_ (qv), which culminated in his breakout lead portrayal of the tortured jazz icon 'Charlie "Bird" Parker' in 'Clint Eastwood' (qv)'s passion project _Bird (1988)_ (qv), for which Whitaker won the Cannes Film Festival award for "best actor" and a Golden Globe nomination. Whitaker continued to work with a number of well-known directors throughout the 1990s. While his "gentle giant" characters typically display innocence, indecision, and timidity along with a strong underlying humanity, he has certainly not shied away from the edgier, darker corners of life as his occasional hitmen and other menacing streetwise types can attest. Although in only the first section of the film, he was memorable as the IRA-captured British soldier whose bizarre relationship with a mysterious femme fatale serves as the catalyst for the critically-lauded drama _The Crying Game (1992)_ (qv). Always a willing participant to push the envelope, he's gone on to enhance a number of lesser films. Among those was his plastic surgeon in _Johnny Handsome (1989)_ (qv), gay clothing designer in 'Robert Altman (I)' (qv)'s _Pręt-ŕ-Porter (1994)_ (qv), alien hunter in _Species (1995)_ (qv), absentee father confronted by his estranged son in _Smoke (1995)_ (qv), and Mafia hitman who models himself after the samurai warrior in _Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai (1999)_ (qv), among many others. As would be expected, he's also had his share of epic-sized bombs, notoriously the 'L. Ron Hubbard' (qv) sci-fi disaster _Battlefield Earth (2000)_ (qv). On the TV front, he was the consulting producer and host of a revamped 'Rod Serling' (qv)'s cult series classic _"The Twilight Zone" (2002)_ (qv), which lasted a disappointing one season. In the early 1990s, Whitaker widened his horizons to include producing/directing and has since gained respect behind the camera as well. He started things off co-producing the violent gangster film _A Rage in Harlem (1991)_ (qv), in which he co-starred with 'Gregory Hines (I)' (qv) and 'Robin Givens' (qv), and then made his successful directorial debut with the soulful _Waiting to Exhale (1995)_ (qv), showcasing a legion of distaff black stars. He also directed co-star 'Whitney Houston (I)' (qv)'s music video of the movie's theme song ("Shoop Shoop"). He also helmed the fluffy romantic comedy _First Daughter (2004)_ (qv) with 'Katie Holmes (I)' (qv) and 'Michael Keaton' (qv). Whitaker also served as an executive producer on First Daughter. He had previously executive produced several made-for-television movies, most notably the 2002 Emmy-award winning Door to Door, starring 'William H. Macy' (qv). He produced these projects through his production company, Spirit Dance Entertainment, which he shut down in 2005 to concentrate on his acting career. In 2002, he co-starred in Joel Schumacher's thriller, Phone Booth, with Kiefer Sutherland and Colin Farrell. That year, he also co-starred with Jodie Foster in Panic Room. Whitaker's greatest success to date is the 2006 film, The Last King of Scotland. His performance earned him the 2007 Academy Award for Best Actor in a Leading Role, For that same role, he also received the Golden Globe Award, the Screen Actors Guild Award, a BAFTA Award, and many critical accolades. He has also received several other honors. In September 2006, the 10th Annual Hollywood Film Festival presented him with its "Hollywood Actor of the Year Award," He was also honored at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival 2007, receiving the American Riviera Award. Previously, in 2005, the Deauville Festival of American Film paid tribute to him. In 2007, Forest Whitaker won the Cinema for Peace Award 2007. In 2007, Whitaker co-starred in The Great Debaters with fellow Oscar winner 'Denzel Washington' (qv), and in 2008, Whitaker played opposite 'Keanu Reeves' (qv) in Street Kings and 'Dennis Quaid' (qv) in Vantage Point. In 2009, Forest co-starred in the Warner Bros. film "Where the Wild Things Are," directed by Spike Jonze, which was a mix of live-action, animation and puppetry as an adaptation of the Maurice Sendak classic children's book. Around the same time, he also starred in "Repossession Mambo", with Jude Law, "Hurricane Season", "Winged Creatures", and "Powder Blue". He appeared in the Olivier Dahan film "My Own Love Song", opposite Renee Zellweger, and was part of the Africa Movie Academy Awards in 2009, in Nigeria. He is married to former model 'Keisha Whitaker' (qv) and has three children by her. His younger brothers 'Kenn Whitaker' (qv) and 'Damon Whitaker' (qv) are both actors as well. Forest was given a star on the Hollywood Walk in April of 2007. In November 2007, Whitaker was the creative mind behind DEWmocracy.com, a website that let people decide the next flavor of Mountain Dew in a "People's Dew" poll. He directed a short film and created the characters for the video game. Whitaker has done extensive humanitarian work, he has been involved with organizations like, Penny Lane, an organization that provides assistance to abused teenagers. PETA and Farm Sanctuary, organizations that protect animals' rights. Close friends with Neurosurgeon Dr. Keith Black, Forest has helped raise awareness and funds for Dr. Blacks research. During the last couple of years, he has become a spokesperson for Hope North Ugandan orphanage and Human Rights Watch. In the year 2001 Forest received a Humanitas Prize. He was recently honored by The City of Los Angeles with the Hope of Los Angeles Award. And his entire clan received the LA BEST Family Focus Award. Last year he joined forces with "Idol Gives Back" and "Malaria No More"; he has become a GQ Ambassador supporting and fundraising for Hope North. He was a Surrogate for Barrack Obama's campaign supporting him across the United States. Whitaker's multimedia company, Spirit Dance Entertainment, includes film, television and music production. He works closely with a number of charitable organizations, giving back to his community by serving as an Honorary Board Members for Penny Lane, an organization that provides assistance to abused teenagers, the Human Rights Watch and The Hope North organization.
Kate Noelle Holmes (Toledo, Ohio, 1978. december 18. –) amerikai színésznő.
Négy testvére van, közülük ő a legfiatalabb. Szigorú katolikus nevelést kapott, szülei orvosnak szánták, de ő modell akart lenni. Ezért 14 éves korában beiratkozott egy modellképző iskolába, ahol a modellkedés mellett színészetet is tanult. 1996-ban Margaret O'Brien figyelt fel tehetségére, a következő évben már Sigourney Weaverrel és Kevin Kline-nal játszott a Jégvihar című filmben.
Az igazi áttörést a Dawson és a haverok című sorozat Josephine Potterje jelentette számára.
2000-ben megismerkedett Chris Kleinnel, 2003-ban Chris eljegyezte Katie-t, majd 2005-ben szakítottak. Nem sokkal a szakítás után találkozott Tom Cruise-zal, akivel pár hónap múlva eljegyezték egymást az Eiffel-torony tetején. Katie ekkor volt pályája csúcsán, hiszen megkapta a Batman: Kezdődik! és a Thank You for Smoking című film főszerepét is.
2006 áprilisában megszületett közös lányuk Suri Cruise, majd novemberben házasodtak össze Tommal Olaszországban. Karrierjében ez egy kisebbfajta visszaesést jelentett. 2008-tól kezdett újra játszani a Van az a pénz, ami megbolondít című filmben. A színésznő ezalatt a pár év alatt teljesen megváltozottː elvesztette ugyan kislányos báját, de komoly nővé érett Tom Cruise mellett és hatására. Bizonyos források szerint Tom elnyomja Katie-t és nem engedi érvényesülni.
2012 júniusában beadta a válókeresetet Tom ellen, gyermekelhelyezést is kérve, mivel az apa a kislányukat szcientológus iskolahajóra akarja küldeni, több évre.
Born two months premature at four pounds, Kate Noelle Holmes made her first appearance on December 18, 1978, in Toledo, Ohio. She is the daughter of Kathleen Ann (Craft), a philanthropist, and Martin Joseph Holmes, Sr., a lawyer. Her parents have said that her strong-willed personality is probably from being born premature. Being the youngest in the Holmes clan, completing the family of three other sisters and one brother, Katie was always the baby. She is of German, Irish, and English ancestry. As a teenager, she began attending modeling school. When she was sixteen, her teacher invited her to go to a modeling competition with other girls from her class. She competed in the International Modeling and Talent Association by singing, dancing, and reciting a monologue from _To Kill a Mockingbird (1962)_ (qv). By the end of that time in New York, Katie won many awards. But she said she didn't want to model because it wasn't challenging enough. So when she was seventeen, Katie went to Los Angeles to audition for movies. Luckily, on her second audition, she was cast in the movie, _The Ice Storm (1997)_ (qv), directed by 'Ang Lee' (qv). Katie's character was Libbets Casey, a rich New Yorker, who is pursued by two of the main characters. It was a small part, but it marked the beginning of her professional acting career. After the excitement of her first movie, Katie began sending in audition tapes for pilot shows. During that time, she was also starring in her all-girls Catholic high school musical, Damn Yankees, as Lola. After 'Kevin Williamson (I)' (qv) received her audition tape for his new show, _"Dawson's Creek" (1998)_ (qv), the producers wanted her to come to Hollywood right away and read live for them. But because they wanted her to come on the opening night for Damn Yankees, Katie had to tell them she couldn't make it. Fortunately, the show's producers wanted her so much for that role, they rescheduled her callback and the result was she got the part as Joey Potter. During her first year with _"Dawson's Creek" (1998)_ (qv), Katie was able to do two movies, _Disturbing Behavior (1998)_ (qv) and _Go (1999)_ (qv), and, for the former, she won Best Breakthrough Female Performance in the 1999 MTV Movie Awards. The following year, she starred next to 'Michael Douglas (I)' (qv) in _Wonder Boys (2000)_ (qv), playing Hannah Green, a published author and a boarder at her teacher's (Douglas) house, who has a crush on him, and tries to seduce him. Her first leading role came in 2002, with _Abandon (2002)_ (qv). She played a college student named Katie Burke, who is haunted by the mysterious disappearance of her boyfriend who vanished two years prior. With _"Dawson's Creek" (1998)_ (qv) coming to a close after six years in May of 2003, it was a bittersweet thing for all the cast. Accustomed to being in North Carolina filming ten months out of a year, the cast members now had the opportunity to make more movies. Katie demonstrated this in October, when she had two new movies, _Pieces of April (2003)_ (qv) and _The Singing Detective (2003)_ (qv), coming out in that month alone. _Pieces of April (2003)_ (qv) is a charming Thanksgiving movie about April (Holmes), the black sheep of her family, who wants to give her family the perfect dinner before her mother passes on. _The Singing Detective (2003)_ (qv) is a dark musical where the main character ('Robert Downey Jr.' (qv)) is a writer in a hospital for skin conditions who writes a dark world of seduction and murder in his mind. Katie Holmes plays the kind Nurse Mills who tends to his every need. She also gets to lip sync and dance in this movie. In 2004, she starred in the romantic movie _First Daughter (2004)_ (qv), in which she played the President's ('Michael Keaton' (qv)) daughter, Samantha, who wants to go to college without any Secret Service tagging along. In 2005, Holmes co-starred in _Batman Begins (2005)_ (qv), where she played Rachel Dawes, a childhood sweetheart and love interest to Batman/Bruce Wayne.
Kiefer William Frederick Dempsey George Rufus Sutherland (1966. december 21.) Golden Globe- és Emmy-díjas brit születésű kanadai színész. Legnagyobb sikerét a FOX által gyártott akciófilm-sorozatban, a 24 főszereplőjeként aratta, amelynek utolsó nyolcadik évadát 2010-ben mutatták be. Angliában, Londonban született Donald Sutherland és Shirley Douglas kanadai színészházaspár gyermekeként. A Kiefer keresztnevet apja első filmjének rendezője, Warren Kiefer után kapta. Családja skót származású, anyai nagyapja, Tommy Douglas legendás tartományi miniszterelnök, a kanadai ingyenes egészségügyi ellátás atyja volt.
A család később kis ideig Kaliforniában élt, a szülők 1972-ben elváltak. 1975-ben ikertestvérével, (az azóta televíziós produkciós vezetőként dolgozó) Rachellel és édesanyjával Torontóba költöztek.
Érdekesség, hogy heterochromiával született, az egyik szeme kék, másik zöld színű.
Tizenkét évesen lenyűgözött a gitár, és arra gondoltam, hogy a zene jelentős szerepet fog játszani az életemben. Játszottam néhány együttesben, bár nem túl jól, amikor egy este megnéztem anyámat a Nem félünk a farkastól című darabban. Az ő teljesítménye megölte bennem a dalokat. Sokszor láttam már azelőtt is színpadon, de valahogy mindig tudtam, hogy az ott az anyám, Shirley. Ám ekkor, a második felvonásban anyukám eltűnt előlem, s átváltozott Martha-vá. Miután a függöny összement, s a játék véget ért, én csak ültem egyedül az üres nézőtéren, teljesen elbűvölve. Ettől a pillanattól kezdve már csak színész akartam lenni.
Apja újabb házassága révén három féltestvére született: Rossif, Angus és Roeg.
1987-ben nősült először. Rövid házasságából 1988-ban született lánya, Sarah Jude. (Mostohalánya jóvoltából pedig 40 éves korában már nagypapa lett.) 1990-ben eljegyezte Julia Robertset, aki az esküvő előtt elhagyta őt. 1996-ban megkötött második házassága is zátonyra futott 1999-ben (a válást 2008-ban mondták ki hivatalosan). Hároméves együtt járás után 2011-ben szakított Siobhan Bonnouvrier-vel is, akit a sajtó találgatása szerint korábban el is jegyzett.
Italozó életmódja miatt nemcsak a bulvársajtó állandó célkeresztjében áll, de két alkalommal a joggal is összetűzésbe került. Ittas vezetésért 2004-ben próbaidős büntetést kapott, így amikor 2007-ben újra rajtakapták, letartóztatása után 48 nap letöltendő börtönbüntetésre ítélték. A büntetést sikerült jórészt a karácsonyi szünetre időzíteni, így a 24 forgatása nem túlzottan sínylette meg a főszereplő távollétét. 2009-ben ismét közel járt a börtönhöz, amikor – szerinte lovagiasságból – lefejelt egy divattervezőt egy rendezvényen, ám ejtették a vádat ellene, mivel a sértettet sikerült anyagiakkal kárpótolni.
Kiefer Sutherland was born in London, England, UK, to Canadian actors 'Shirley Douglas (I)' (qv) and 'Donald Sutherland (I)' (qv), who moved to California shortly after his birth. His maternal grandfather, 'Tommy Douglas (I)' (qv), was a Scottish-born Canadian politician who was a Premier of Saskatchewan for over 17 years and led the national NDP party for almost 10. Kiefer got his first film role in the comedy drama _Max Dugan Returns (1983)_ (qv). Sutherland's first major role was in the Canadian drama _The Bay Boy (1984)_ (qv), which earned Sutherland and director 'Daniel Petrie' (qv), Genie award nominations for best actor and best director, respectively. Following his success in The Bay Boy, Sutherland eventually moved to Los Angeles and landed television appearances in "The Mission", an episode of _"Amazing Stories" (1985)_ (qv) and in the telefilm _Trapped in Silence (1986) (TV)_ (qv) with 'Marsha Mason (I)' (qv). In 1992, Sutherland starred opposite 'Ray Liotta' (qv) and 'Forest Whitaker' (qv) in _Article 99 (1992)_ (qv) and in the military drama _A Few Good Men (1992)_ (qv) also starring 'Jack Nicholson (I)' (qv) and 'Tom Cruise' (qv). Later, in 1994, he starred with 'Jeff Bridges (I)' (qv) and 'Nancy Travis (I)' (qv) in the American version of _The Vanishing (1993)_ (qv) for 20th Century Fox. In 1997, he co-starred with 'William Hurt' (qv) and 'Rufus Sewell' (qv) in _Dark City (1998)_ (qv), directed by 'Alex Proyas' (qv), which was a special presentation at the Cannes Film Festival. Sutherland also added his second directorial credit and starred in _Truth or Consequences, N.M. (1997)_ (qv) alongside 'Kevin Pollak (I)' (qv), 'Mykelti Williamson' (qv), 'Rod Steiger' (qv) and 'Martin Sheen' (qv). He stars in the Fox drama series _"24" (2001)_ (qv) as Jack Bauer for which he has earned a Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Drama Series. Most recently, he has been seen in the movie _Phone Booth (2002)_ (qv) as a man who calls up someone at a phone booth and threatens to kill them if they hang up.
