Kiefer Sutherland reunites with Stand By Me co-star Jerry O'Connell... and ... trends now

Kiefer Sutherland reunited with his 'old friend' and Stand By Me co-star Jerry O'Connell 38 years after their 'lives were forever changed' and respective careers were launched from Rob Reiner's 1986 coming-of-age drama.

The 57-year-old 24 alum cleared up an old rumor - still listed on the film's IMDb trivia page - that he bullied his young castmates in order 'to keep in character while off-camera.'

'Absolutely not true. First of all, I'm not that kind of actor and I wouldn't want to be that kind of person,' Kiefer said on last Thursday's episode of "The Talk.

'I spent a lot of time with [the late] River Phoenix because we both played guitar, and so that was kind of an in to him. Even though I was seven years older, we were both beginning, right? And so there was a lot of discussion about "How do you develop a character? What is your process?"'

The 50-year-old The Talk co-host could not believe Sutherland was only 18 years old when he portrayed gang leader John 'Ace' Merrill in the 1959-set cinematic classic, which began filming in June of 1985.
