PHOTO: Kiefer Sutherland Gets a Hollywood Star
Among the hundreds of fans on hand for the ceremony was his father Donald Sutherland, who gave a touching speech about watching Kiefer grow into an "astonishingly good" actor.
Sutherland, 41, whose life is back on track following a jail term for DUI, said he never imagined he would have a star, but looks forward to the day when he can share it with his grandson.
"One day we can come across my star and he and I can jump up and down on it," he said, "and he won't have to worry because it won't break."
24 returns next month for its seventh season with a two-night episode starting Jan. 11 on Fox. – Elaine Aradillas
