This time last year, Kiefer Sutherland was being released from jail on the DUI he got after leaving a FOX party with a little too much booze in his system. Seems someone's learned a lesson -- at last night's "24" party, he had a driver.
"24" X's Dead President from Xmas Party

When President Palmer was shot in the throat at the beginning of season 5, Dennis Haysbert wasn't just killed off "24" -- he was axed from the show's holiday party invite list too!
How the hell do you snub this guy? Not only is Dennis the nicest guy ever, but he probably can get you a lower deductible!

While co-star Kiefer Sutherland was getting his star on the Walk of Fame, Mary Lynn Rajskub got her own accolade -- her son Valentine Anthony's throw up. *Burp!
That's an award only a mother could love.

No matter what anyone says, you are never too old to share a tender moment with your pops.
Kiefer Sutherland has gone from starting the year off in jail to a star on the Walk of Fame. No wonder papa Donald is proud.

He wasn't torturing terrorists or saving L.A. from yet another nuclear bomb, but Kiefer Sutherland did his part to make the world a better place yesterday by snapping at a security guard who kept telling his golf cart driver to drive away, almost getting a fan run over.

Dreadful "American Idol" wannabe Jason Castro -- and Melissa Gilbert as Laura Ingalls on "Little House on the Prairie."
One of them often wore a Sunday dress.
We're just sayin'!
Kiefer Sutherland: 24 Minutes

Donald Sutherland -- Allergic to Kiefer?
1/28/2008 5:08 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Donald Sutherland's publicist smells a rat! A rep for the Golden Globe-winning actor refused to allow him to be interviewed at the "Fool's Gold" junket last Friday -- after she got a whiff of cigarette smoke!
Donald has a "serious, serious" smoke allergy says the rep, and there are always strict guidelines in place to ensure he's not exposed to secondhand smoke. Just prior to Donald's arrival at the junket, some staff members had been puffin' away on the balcony -- and that just wasn't going to work.
Incidentally, Sutherland's son, "24" star Kiefer, is rarely seen without a cig. TMZ caught Donald hugging his smoky son last week, after Kiefer's release from jail. Perhaps he held his breath.
Sutherland's publicist had no comment on how he manages his extreme allergy around Kiefer.

Kiefer Sutherland is a free man.
He was released just after midnight at the Glendale City Jail after serving 48 days after his second DUI conviction. Lots of media were on hand, because the release time and date were no secret.
Kiefer became an expert in doing laundry during his stint. Let's hope he turned the tide.
Kiefer Still Doing Time -- And Laundry
1/11/2008 6:22 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
TMZ has exclusively learned that Kiefer Sutherland will not be released early -- he's gotta do his full 48 days. He checked in on Dec. 5.
According to officer John Balian of the Glendale PD, Kiefer's not gonna get the Michelle Rodriguez treatment. His release date is scheduled for January 21.
Kiefer is still behaving well, and is considered an A+ type of inmate. He does not complain about anything and is still on laundry duty. He was never assigned to kitchen stuff.
Sutherland has not received visitors throughout his stay in jail -- no one came during the holidays -- or his birthday, but he gets tons of mail from fans all over the world.
Kiefer Cleans Up in the Clink

Kiefer Sutherland is airing a ton of dirty laundry behind bars -- but it's not what you think.
TMZ has learned that Sutherland is doing heavy laundry duty -- folding sheets, washing pillowcases, drying blankets, and so on. "He is still assigned to laundry duty and is now doing it on his own," Glendale PD PIO Officer John Balian tells us. Jack Bauer's got some new skills!
One last note: Kiefer hasn't yet received any visitors, except for his attorney. According to the rules, Sutherland is entitled to a max of two visitors a day for a 15-minute video conference chat each. So all the ladies looking to cash in Sutherland's latest talents, get in line!
Kiefer Learns to Fluff & Fold!

After a little more than 24 hours, Kiefer Sutherland is adapting well to life behind bars. We're told he woke up around 8:00 AM this morning and ate his prison-issue breakfast. After that, he is scheduled for laundry duty. "We had a pretty busy night last night, so Kiefer will probably have a lot of laundry to do today," Glendale PD PIO John Balian tells TMZ. Um ... busy?
Sutherland has already taken his first jail shower -- by himself. He is not being kept in isolation, but he has little contact with other inmates. Today he is scheduled to serve lunch and dinner to fellow arrestees, bringing a little Tinseltown glamor to an otherwise glum mess hall.
In his un-free free time, Kiefer has been reading and watching TV. So far, he's had no visitors.

Kiefer Sutherland checked himself into jail yesterday and it looks like he brought his makeup artist along with him. Jack Bauer, is that you?
With more and more and more and more celebrities serving stints in jail, gone are the days of the Nick Nolte fresh-off-an-all-night-bender mugshot.
Officer, I'm ready for my closeup!
