Actor Kiefer Sutherland will be in Milan on the 9th of February 2020. This time he will not be in front of camera to star in a brand new picture. Mr Sutherland is also a talented musician who will be entertaining the Milanese people with some good country rock music.
The beginning of a brilliant career
Kiefer William Frederick Dempsey George Rufus Sutherland (Yep! This is his full name…) comes from Hollywood royalty. He is the son of actors Donald Sutherland and Shirley Douglas who got divorced when he was just a child. He studied in Toronto where he moved with his mother before pursuing a career in showbusiness.
Everyone (except Gen-Xers maybe…) count among their favorite 80’s movies at least two titles: Stand By Me and The Lost Boys. Well, Kiefer Sutherland starred in both of them. This was the beginning of a brilliant career who saw the Canadian/English (he was born in London) working with the most talented directors and movie professionals. From Flatliners with Julia Roberts, who he almost got married to, and Kevin Bacon to A Few Good Men with his majesty Jack Nickolson.
The 90s: the bad guy
During the 10 years before the new millenium Kiefer landed a couple of roles which had him known in the movie industry as the villain of the villains. From Eye for an Eye with Academy Award winner Sally Field to A Time to Kill where he starred with his father Donald, Sandra Bullock, Matthew something ( I can’t really spell his last name) and Samuel L. Jackson.
Television roles and awards
The 2000s for this eclectic actor open with a role in Picking Up the Pieces with Woody Allen. But cinema was not enough. In 2001 a new TV show by FOX called 24 earned Kiefer Sutherland worldwide fame and a decent amount of awards to shine on a shelf in his apartament. The role of agent Jack Bauer got him an Emmy Award, a Golden Globe, two Screen Actors Guild Awards, and two Satellite Awards.
It was in 2016 when he released his first album which allowed him to be “accepted” by the country music environment as one of them. The second collection of his songs has been on the market since May 2019. Reckless & Me: this is the title of the album which he will be presenting to the Milanese people this February at the Fabrique, a well known club just a few miles form the Milan Linate Airport.
