Donald Sutherland Belongs to the Ages


Donald Sutherland

Belongs to the Ages


Legendary, distinguished and unusually charismatic Canadian actor, Donald Sutherland passed away yesterday at age 88, leaving behind an amazing film legacy that spanned 6 decades. In his career he was awarded many accolades, which included two Golden Globe Awards, as well as a Primetime Emmy, as well as a BAFTA Award nomination.

He is also considered to be one of the best actors to never have been nominated for an Academy Award, but despite this fact, he received an Academy Honorary Award in 2017.

Donald Sutherland starred in the war film, The Dirty Dozen (1967), and went on to appear in M*A*S*H (1970). My most vivid recollections of Donald Sutherland were in Animal House (1978), Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978), Ordinary People (1980), and most prominently starring as Mr. X in the 1991 JFK movie.

Donald Sutherland's son, Kiefer Sutherland is also an extremely famous actor, and is perhaps best know for his starring role as Jack Bauer on the Fox megabit drama series titled "24", which ran from 2001-2010, 2024), for which he won a Golden Globe Award as well as a Primetime Emmy Award. As Jack Bauer, on 24, he famously wore a Rolex SEA-DWELLER as pictured below.

Kiefer Sutherland is also a famous movie star and is known for roles he played in movies like Stand by Me (1986), and A Few Good Men (1992).
