Donald Sutherland, Actor in 'M.A.S.H.', 'The Hunger Games' and Many Others, Dies at 88


Actor Donald Sutherland, whose career stretched from playing a sardonic soldier in the antiwar comedy “M.A.S.H.” to a patriarch in the “Hunger Games” films, has died. He was 88.

The actor's son, Kiefer Sutherland, confirmed the death Thursday but did not specify the cause.

A tall, lanky performer with a sly smile, Sutherland was a top Hollywood star of the 1970s and remained busy with new movies and television shows well into his 80s. His more than 150 credits included film genres from wartime drama to horror to teen romance.

In recent years, he was best known for playing the conniving President Snow in the “Hunger Games” films.

But he also drew acclaim for his portrayal of Hawkeye Pierce in “M.A.S.H.,” the 1970 satirical comedy set during the Korean War. Sutherland's performance as the expert marksman and perennial intriguer was one of many highlights in a career that spanned decades and earned him an Oscar in 2017 for lifetime achievement.

The Canadian-born actor, a onetime engineering student who studied at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art, was married three times, including to actress Shirley Douglas, with whom he had twins, including actor Kiefer Sutherland.

His other children are Roeg, Rossif and Angus Redford, all with his longtime partner, Francine Racette.

Besides “M.A.S.H.,” Sutherland appeared in such varied films as “The Dirty Dozen,” “Kelly’s Heroes,” “Clash of the Titans,” “Lost Boys,” “Reindeer Games,” “A Few Good Men,” “The Hunt for Red October,” “In the Line of Fire,” “The Cowboys,” “Demon Under the Sun,” “The Puppet Masters,” “The Relic,” “Freak Friday,” “The Saint,” “Without Limits,” “The Italian Job,” “The Riddle,” “The Long Way Home,” “The Confession,” “The Chase,” “Remember,” “The Hunt,” “Path to War,” “The Reluctant Fundamentalist,” “The Secret Life of Houdini,” “Love Happens,” “Faster,&#x201
