Hollywood is full of famous twins, including Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen, Tia & Tamera Mowry, and Cole and Dylan Sprouse. But there are also several stars with not-so-famous twin siblings.

Hunter occasionally joins his sister on the red carpet for the various events she attends in Tinsletown and all over the world. He told People of his sis in 2009: "She's set me up on dates. It wasn't with anybody famous. It was with some school friends – all very beautiful, wonderful girls."

9 Hollywood Stars You Didn't Know Were In Your Favorite Video Ga
As video game sales continue to rival or even surpass Hollywood box office receipts, plenty of famous actors and actresses are crossing over to lend their talents to another industry. Funny thing is though, you might not even realize it. Plenty of game companies have recruited Hollywood stars to serve as voice actors for their top titles. Sometimes the star's in-game character is rendered after their real world appearance, but more often than not, the game will feature a character that looks nothing like the voice actor, leaving the most casual fans in the dark about who was behind the mic....

Kiefer Sutherland is "terrified" about returning to '24'.

Speaking at the Television Critics Association's meeting at the Langham Hotel in Pasadena, California yesterday (13.01.14), he said: "I'm terrified. I won't lie to you. Until we start shooting, I'm about as anxious and wound up as I've been in a long time.

"Twilight" sweethearts Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson seemed like a match made in heaven until the actress publicly confessed to having an affair with her "Snow White and the Huntsman" director Rupert Sanders.

Even worse, rumors circulated that Pattinson had been planning to propose before he found out his girlfriend cheated. Now the couple, which has notoriously been private about their relationship, appears to have broken up after dating for three years and starring in five films together.

'Touch' Recap: 'Safety In Numbers' Saves A Few Lives

March 30th, 2012 1:14am EDT
So far, Touch is coming together pretty nicely, with its intriguing pilot and solid second episode. This third one begins with Martin getting a call from the board and care facility, and he shows up much to the annoyance of Clea, who warns him to be careful. Both of them are surprised to find that Jake has escaped from his room again, and he's writing a new number: 3287.

As Clea's leading him back to his room, Jake slips a clipping of a dragon with the number on it into his father's jacket. Martin takes the number to our wise old guy, Teller (Danny Glover), who warns him to keep h...

'Touch' Recap: '1+1=3' Is Wrong Math, But Great TV

March 23rd, 2012 1:04am EDT
It's been awhile since we saw the Touch pilot, but the show is finally here to stay and for my money, it's the best new show of this TV season.

"I'm not taking him back there," Martin tells Clea when she shows up at his apartment, wanting to take Jake back to the boarding facility. It's the very next day after the events of the pilot, and Martin is insistent that his son is trying to communicate with him. Yet when Clea threatens to call the police, Martin reconsiders. Before he leaves, Jake writes the phone number to Arnie's Pawn Shop on his father's hand, the last four digits of ...

Actor Kiefer Sutherland was once left desperately trying to maintain his dignity after a raucous ride on mechanical bull left him exposed.

The 24 star was a guest on Britain's The Jonathan Ross Show this week, and watched on in amusement as former England cricket player Andrew Flintoff rode a mechanical bull in front of a cheering audience.

The stunt sparked an embarrassing memory for the actor, who revealed he once was left with a busted hand and a split pair of jeans when he went wild on one of the rides.

He told Ross, "I broke two fingers and I split my pants from the crotch all the w...

'Touch' Recap: 'Pilot' (1.01)

January 26th, 2012 1:15am EST
Although it doesn't officially bow until March 19, FOX gave us an early look at the Kiefer Sutherland-led Touch tonight, and it was a glimpse at a series that could be something fantastic.

At face value, Martin Bohm couldn't be more different than Jack Bauer. He's an average, working-class guy interrupted from his work at JFK Airport so that he can get his mute son Jake down from a cell tower. Soon afterward, the number 318 starts popping up, whether it's on the back of a school bus, or on the knuckles of a random man in a convenience store (Titus Welliver, looking totally differen...

Q&A: Kiefer Sutherland Returns To TV In 'Touch'

January 25th, 2012 11:00am EST
He's leaving Jack Bauer behind (for now): Kiefer Sutherland is back on the FOX network, but it's with the new series Touch (which previews tonight). Here's what the 24 had to stay about stepping into another leading role.

Obviously, the first question is what about this made you want to come back to TV so soon after the end of 24?

It was funny. I was doing a play in New York on Broadway. I had a film that I knew I was going to go do and so I read Touch almost reluctantly. I don’t think I was completely ready to go back to television yet. I was enjoying some of the different opportunitie...

The 10th Anniversary Of '24'

November 6th, 2011 3:17pm EST
How time flies: 10 years ago today, 24 premiered on FOX, and television - not to mention pop culture and the world - was never the same.

The action-drama series, created by La Femme Nikita bosses Joel Surnow and Robert Cochran, and starring Kiefer Sutherland as now-famous government agent Jack Bauer, was a groundbreaking piece of entertainment. It introduced the idea of a television series in real time (each episode was an hour in a day) and employed a distinctive visual style that included the widespread use of "boxes" to provide simultaneous glimpses at multiple storylines. In concept ...

Japanese TV Producers Pull '24' Over Radiation Plot

April 5th, 2011 7:54am EDT
TV bosses in Japan have pulled a planned broadcast of the final season of 24 due to a sensitive storyline involving radiation poisoning.

The 9.0-magnitude earthquake and subsequent tsunami that struck the Asian country last month damaged a nuclear center in Fukushima, causing radiation to seep into the water supply.

In response to the crisis, TV Tokyo executives have decided not to air the eighth series of 24, in which the son of a Russian terrorist falls ill after he is exposed to nuclear rods. The fifth season of the series, which stars Kiefer Sutherland, will be shown instead.
