He bought a ranch in Montana and was victorious on the rodeo circuit.
Chance intervened in 2001, when Kiefer accepted a project promoting a "real-time" TV action series. The globally-syndicated Twentieth Century Fox U.S. TV show, "24", has been greatly successful ever since. It made Kiefer an international star beyond his wildest dreams.
