Kiefer Sutherland runs through a packed Grand Central Station, dodging bystanders and scanning the crowd for suspicious activity. The minutes fly by — seen in frequent close-ups of ticking clocks — drawing closer to a potentially explosive moment. Sutherland confronts a guy on a public phone, spins him around and starts punching. Wait, is Jack Bauer back on TV? He's not, but Sutherland is returning to the Fox network. Only his new drama, "Touch," owes more to feature films like "Crash" and "Short Cuts" than to his previous award-winning espionage series, "24. " He just happens, in the first episode of "Touch," to be racing against time to unravel a mystery, an unintentional bone for "24" fans since it was written before Sutherland signed on. The new drama, which will have a sneak preview Jan. 25 after "American Idol," centers on Sutherland's character, Martin Bohm, a former journalist and single dad to a special-needs 11-year-old boy. The son, Jake, who's remote, combative and uncommunicative, may be autistic, but he exhibits savant-like qualities with gadgets and numbers.

Part sword-and-sandal spectacle, part disaster epic, "Pompeii" accomplishes its ambitious agenda to largely engrossing effect. Sure, it's not the brainiest of outings, but director Paul W.S. Anderson (the man behind four of the "Resident Evil" films) keeps the action apace and the lava a-flowing with workmanlike energy and sufficient visual dazzle. Set in AD 79, immediately before and during the cataclysmic eruption of southern Italy's Mt. Vesuvius, the script by Janet Scott Batchler & Lee Batchler and Michael Robert Johnson places a star-crossed romance at the center of one of the ancient world's most legendary calamities.

In a brave new movie world populated by pretty boys, partyin' dudes and lounge lizards, the shadowed and sardonic Kiefer Sutherland wakes you up like a strong cup of black coffee. His is a "character" face, which too often can be the kiss of death for the young actor trying to establish his leading-man credentials. The character face can mean an actor will be typecast as the "bad guy," the "psycho" or the "druggie."

Jack is back. "24", the hit series starring Kiefer Sutherland as embattled super spy Jack Bauer, is being resurrected as "24: Live Another Day" a 12-episode series that will debut May 5 on Fox.

He said "24" set a high standard that he hoped the new series could reach.

The bloodlines are unmistakable. When Kiefer Sutherland strolls into a room, you are immediately reminded of his father, actor Donald Sutherland. There are differences. Kiefer is seven inches shorter than his father, who stands 6-4. And Kiefer has a slightly fuller face. But the full-lipped mumble is there--and so is the diverse career. Barely into manhood, the 21-year-old Sutherland has already made 12 films, most of them features.

Kiefer Sutherland and the designer he is accused of head-butting say they've resolved their differences, clearing the way for the charges against the actor to be dropped. Sutherland's representatives said Friday that the actor was sorry about what happened and regrets that designer Jack McCollough was injured. And McCollough wished the "24" actor well. Sutherland was charged May 7 with third-degree assault in the incident two weeks ago at a New York City nightclub. McCollough claimed Sutherland broke his nose after an argument following a star-studded gala.

The love will last long after the heat," says Kiefer Sutherland by way of encouragement in the unmistakably calm voice that's both gravelly and smooth. It's 104 degrees inside a downtown loft, and the camera crew is near heat stroke. But Sutherland's keeping his cool--even in merino wool. The actor maintains a constant level of comfort, which is reflected in his conspicuously unstudied sense of style.

Jack Bauer is resetting his clock for more "24," and this time he's going to have to set it to Greenwich Mean Time. The thriller series starring Kiefer Sutherland that ran on Fox for eight seasons is coming back for a 12-episode limited series next year, and instead of returning to Jack's old stomping grounds of Los Angeles or Washington, D.C., the new series will be filmed in the U.K. Known as "24: Live Another Day," the new series is the...

Another key component of Fox's "24" will be back when the show returns with new episodes next season. Jon Casser, a producer and director on the thriller from Seasons 2 through 7, has signed on to executive produce and direct several episodes of "24: Live Another Day," which will debut in 2014. “Jon was a profoundly integral part of '24' creatively and culturally. It doesn't feel like it would be '24' without him, and we're all just really thrilled to be working with him again," said Howard Gordon, the longtime "24" show runner.

"Touch," which brings Kiefer Sutherland back to television and Fox after not so very long a time, is a well-dressed work of solemn, sentimental nonsense whose undeniably appealing theme is that there is an order to the universe, a mystical, mathematical intention that is working to heal our wounds, protect our children and fulfill our dreams. The aggressive claims its more than myriad coincidences and remote yet trickily interdependent story lines make on one's suspended disbelief will in itself be taken by some as a sign that it is on the side of the angels.

"Sometimes you have to go through something to find out why you did it," says Kiefer Sutherland at the start of the documentary, "I Trust You to Kill Me." The actor's Ironworks record label released the first album by roots-rock group Rocco DeLuca and the Burden this year; the film captures the band's two-week European jaunt last Christmas with Sutherland serving as tour manager.

How does the world end? When it is in the hands of the cinematic master of human misery, dark Danish auteur Lars von Trier, as it is in "Melancholia," it ends in extraordinary, horrific, searing, aching and unthinkable ways. It is his most hopeful film yet. Still firmly rooted in the filmmaker's esoteric, frustrating, provoking, demanding narrative style, the movie is also amazingly romantic — lush, ripe, rich, delicious. Its apocalyptic vision is encouraging in its hopelessness; its star, Kirsten Dunst, luminous in her anguish and devastation.

So, not a great night for Ricky Gervais fans, but you have to love a show in which Meryl Streep announces she would like to be called "T Bone," Mike Tyson shares the stage with Bradley Cooper and Sandra Bullock actually chokes up thanking her agent . We were so excited when the Hollywood Foreign Press Assn. announced they had drafted the British comedian to host this year's Golden Globes ceremony. He had essentially saved the 2008 Emmys, and even his recent appearance on "The Tonight Show With Conan O'Brien" was promising, as he incited O'Brien to use the window of his struggles with NBC to his best advantage.
