4 Hours In Toronto With Kiefer Sutherland Mark Seal
In a take off on his hit show 24, the seasoned actor takes us through a full day in his Canadian hometown.
Kiefer Sutherland has a kidney stone.
We’re scheduled to meet for lunch at L.A.’s venerable showbiz hang, Chaya Brasserie, but as I cruise toward Chaya, I get The Call. “He doubled over just before an appearance before the Hollywood Foreign Press Association,” an assistant tells me. He’s now in a medical facility, and, of course, everything is in limbo, probably canceled, and that includes me.
I wait out the kidney stone at a Beverly Hills hair replacement facility, popping in for a scalp massage and follicle exfoliation treatment, praying that Sutherland’s stone passes before my return flight does. Then, just when I’m about to call it a day, my cellphone rings: The stone is gone and Sutherland has rallied. “He wants to do it,” says the assistant.
“To stop a weapon that has no cure, you need a man who knows no limits,” proclaims the ad copy for 24, the nail-biting hit Fox TV series, which plays out in real time, each of the 24 episodes tracking an impossibly frantic hour in the lives of government agents. Sutherland portrays the main character Jack Bauer, the steely-nerved Fed who “knows no limits.” The show snatched an impressive 10 Emmy nominations last season, and Sutherland’s own knows-no-limits acting won him a Golden Globe.
The son of actor Donald Sutherland, Kiefer has been on the fast track to fame since he first appeared as a knife-wielding punk in the film Stand By Me. In the years following, he was famously engaged to Julia Roberts and spent time competing on the rodeo circuit in Montana, where he once owned a ranch. One of his latest film roles was as a WWII POW in To End All Wars, so he’s not the type of guy to be laid low by a microscopic piece of calcium in the lower extremities.
When Sutherland finally shows at Chaya, he fires up a Camel.
“I’ve broken every bone in my body,” he says of his time in the rodeo. “But I’ve never experienced pain like this,” referring to the morning’s bronc-busting ride with the kidney stone.
Then he moves on to a story about a train, set in his hometown of Toronto, where he returned after a college stint in Ottawa.
“Actors like Timothy Hutton and Sean Penn had really broken down a lot of doors for younger actors, and I wanted to take advantage of that,” he says. “I remember getting on a train to Toronto one night, and when I got there, I had maybe $46, or something frightening like that. The train station in Toronto is massive; it’s like Grand Central Station. That morning, it was glorious and it was empty. I remember walking out of the station, seeing the pigeons take off, and thinking, This is the first day of the rest of my life. I remember feeling like Rocky. You know, when he’s at the top of the stairs.”
Toronto still makes a man feel like that. So herewith is Kiefer Sutherland’s 24-hour take on where you’ll find him, hour by hour, in Toronto, the city he still calls home.
Midnight: Check In and Unwind
“I have a house in Toronto, but I’ll still go stay a night or two at the Windsor Arms for nostalgic reasons. It’s right in the center of town, and I’ve stayed there forever. It’s a really old, kind of funky hotel that has a minimalist feel. I remember how minimalist and sexy Mickey Rourke’s apartment was in 9 1¼2 Weeks, and this hotel is very similar to that.”
5 QUESTIONS WITH KIEFER
What’s your favorite memory of Toronto?
“One of the first big jobs I got in Toronto was a film called The Bay Boy, which won,
I believe, 6 out of a possible 11 Academy of Canadian Cinema & Television awards. I was living in a basement apartment at Howland and Bloor. The building is still there; I check on it all the time. I didn’t even have a one-bedroom. It was a one-room apartment, and it had an exposed toilet with a curtain around it. And I just remember how excited I was when I got that job. I had to actually run outside to jump up and down.”
Why is the film industry so vibrant in Toronto?
“It’s because A) you have an incredibly large talent pool of people who know how to make films, B) you have a government willing to assist you, and C) you can’t beat the dollar exchange. I was in Whistler skiing, sitting with a bunch of Americans, and this guy said, ‘I can’t believe it. I came here with a hundred bucks. I got a lift ticket, four beers, and I still have over a hundred bucks.’”
What’s your favorite event in Toronto?
“The one thing I’ve always loved about Toronto, more than any place I’ve ever been, is this thing at the end of every June called Caravan. Every community, from Greek to East Indian, sets aside restaurants. You buy a book of tickets and you can go to whatever area you want. It’s basically like traveling the world, but all in Toronto. Let’s say you’re going to go for a German night. You’ll have dinner in this one area and it will also include tickets to go see a German show. The waiters or waitresses will wear authentic German costumes and then they’ll play German music and dance. It’s the same with every group. Toronto is one of the few places where its incredible cultural diversity works together constructively as opposed to people being pitted against each other. I was always very proud to be from Toronto because of that.”
What music reminds you of Toronto?
“I’m a huge fan of Canadian rock-and-roll. When I was growing up, Rush came out with a record called Hemispheres, and I must have listened to that record for two years straight. Even when I was asleep I had it on. So, yeah, whenever I hear a Rush tune, the first thing I think of is Toronto.”
What do you never leave home without when you travel?
“I’ve always traveled with a picture of my daughter from 1989, her kindergarten school picture, that has ‘I love you, Daddy’ written on it. She’s always made fun of me because I never changed that picture out. It’s like my resistance to her getting older. It was the first thing she’d ever written to me and it means the world to me.”

Culture. I am absolutely overwhelmed by all this cultural wealth. When I go to Paris, I never know where to turn my head there are so many things to see and appreciate.

General de Gaulle. When a man comes to play an important role in the history of his country is fascinating.
