Kiefer Sutherland signs with CAA

'24' star leaves William Morris Agency

Kiefer Sutherland has signed with CAA.

Sutherland leaves the William Morris Agency along with his longtime agent, Scott Lambert, who announced internally his plans to leave WMA. While Lambert hasn’t unveiled his plans — joining Ryan Kavanaugh’s Relativity tops a short list — Sutherland didn’t wait before leaving for CAA. The agency reps his father, Donald Sutherland; his half brother, Roeg Sutherland, is an agent in CAA’s independent film department.

WMA made a remarkable deal for Sutherland to continue as Jack Bauer on “24” that, counting his participation as executive producer, was near $50 million. Sutherland also launched the record label Ironworks Music.

Sutherland’s TV renewal deal runs through season eight, which will begin shooting in April and air in early 2010. Sutherland brings Bauer back for “24: Redemption,” a two-hour prequel that airs Sunday. The show’s seventh season begins on Fox on Jan. 11. Those “24” commissions remain with WMA.

CAA can commission Sutherland if he takes a feature during a short hiatus after he wraps season seven at year’s end. The agency could also make a deal for Sutherland to continue on “24,” if the real-time drama continues beyond season 8.

Sutherland’s next screen gig is voicing Gen. W.R. Monger in the upcoming DreamWorks animated film “Monsters vs. Aliens,” which bows March 27.

He continues to be managed by Suzan Bymel of Management 360.
