Donald Sutherland | Michel Dorn
Sutherland is one of the most prolific and versatile of motion picture actors, with an astonishing resume of well over 130 films, including such classics as Robert Aldrich's "The Dirty Dozen," Robert Altman's "M*A*S*H," John Schlesinger's "The Day of the Locust," Robert Redford's "Ordinary People," Bernardo Bertolucci's "1900," Philip Kaufman's "Invasion of the Body Snatchers," Nicolas Roeg's "Don't Look Now" with Julie Christie, Alan Pakula's "Klute" with Jane Fonda, Federico Fellini's "Casanova" and Brian Hutton's "Kelly's Heroes" with Clint Eastwood.
Recently he starred in the highly successful long-form adaptation of Ken Follett's best-seller, "The Pillars of the Earth," in the Roman epic adventure "The Eagle," opposite Channing Tatum and Jamie Bell for director Kevin Macdonald, in Simon West's "The Mechanic" with Jason Statham and Ben Foster, in Seth Gordon's "Horrible Bosses" as Colin Farrell's father, and in Mary McGuckian's "Man on the Train" with U2's Larry Mullen Jr. He currently stars as President Snow in the enormously popular film adaptation of "The Hunger Games," directed and co-written by Gary Ross.
In television, Sutherland won both Emmy and Golden Globe awards as Best Supporting Actor for his performance in the film "Citizen X," and he won a Golden Globe for his portrayal of Clark Clifford, advisor to President Lyndon B. Johnson, in the historical drama "Path to War," directed by the late John Frankenheimer.
Sutherland co-starred with Peter Krause in the series "Dirty Sexy Money." For his performance as the family patriarch, Tripp Darling, he was nominated for a 2007 Golden Globe as Best Supporting Actor. Prior to that, he co-starred with Geena Davis in the drama series "Commander in Chief" and was nominated for a Golden Globe as Best Supporting Actor for his portrayal of House Speaker Nathan Templeton. At the same time, he was nominated for a Golden Globe as Best Actor for his performance opposite Mira Sorvino in the much-lauded miniseries "Human Trafficking."
On stage, Sutherland starred with Justin Kirk and Julianna Margulies in a sold-out, critically acclaimed Lincoln Center engagement of Jon Robin Baitz's "Ten Unknowns." For that performance he received an Outer Critics Circle Award nomination for Best Actor. He also starred in the London, Toronto and Los Angeles productions of "Enigmatic Variations," an English language translation of Eric-Emmanuel Schmitt's French play.
