Perhaps one of the most prolific and widely recognized actors of his generation, Donald Sutherland made a career playing some of the most unusual and memorable characters in cinema history. Though best known for playing odd, off-beat roles, like a hippie tank commander in "Kelly's Heroes" (1970), an anti-authoritarian surgeon in "M*A*S*H" (1970), a novice private investigator in "Klute" (1971) and a stoner college professor in "Animal House" (1978), Sutherland cut a wide swath of characters throughout his career, mainly in order to avoid being typecast as eccentric weirdos. Critical acclaim for several of his performances - especially "Ordinary People" (1980) and "JFK" (1991) - was abundant, but he rarely received any awards, a surprising revelation given the breadth and quality of his work. Nonetheless, Sutherland maintained a steady career despite a long lull in the mid-1980s, even expanding his horizons into series television with "Commander in Chief" (ABC, 2005-06) and "Dirty Sexy Money" (ABC, 2007-09); two projects that, although short-lived, earned him further critical raves. A key supporting role in "The Hunger Games" trilogy as the charmingly duplicitous President Snow brought him a new popular audience late in his career. Boasting a filmography that spanned more than five decades, Sutherland established himself as one of the most prolific, inventive and respected actors ever to grace the screen.
