Stand By Me's Ace is unrecognisable 36 years on from beloved movie

STAND By Me's Ace is unrecognisable 36 years on from the beloved movie.

The 1986 film is based on Stephen King's story The Body and follows four boys who go on a hike to find the dead body of a missing boy in 1959.


The main cast included Wil Wheaton, River Phoenix, Corey Feldman and Jerry O'Connell, with the foursome coming across local gang leader Ace.

With his bleached hair and stubble, Ace wasn't someone to be messed with, and was played brilliantly by Kiefer Sutherland.

Kiefer is the son of actor Donald Sutherland and Stand By Me was one of his first major roles.

A year after Stand By Me was released, Kiefer starred in another classic 80s film, The Lost Boys.

During his career he has also starred in films including Young Guns, A Few Good Men, Phone Booth and Pompeii.

However, it's his role as Jack Bauer in hit series 24 that has garnered him the most attention as an adult.

Kiefer first took on the role of the counter-terrorist agent in 2001 and played him for eight seasons until 2010.

The star returned to the role in 2013 for a 12-episode limited series, 24: Live Another Day.

One of his most recent roles was as President Tom Kirkman in Designated Survivor and will soon be seen in The First Lady as President Franklin D. Roosevelt.

As well as his acting work, Kiefer is also a talented musician and has released three albums, most recently Bloor Street, which dropped last month.
