Donald Sutherland dead: Actor from ‘MASH’ and ‘Hunger Games’ was 88

Donald Sutherland, an actor whose long career ranged from “MASH” to “National Lampoon’s Animal House” to the “Hunger Games” franchise, has died at 88.

The Hollywood trades say Sutherland’s talent agency, CAA, confirmed his death Thursday in Miami.

The Canadian-born actor broke out into the mainstream with his wisecracking work as rebellious Korean War surgeon “Hawkeye” Pierce in Robert Altman’s “MASH” (1970).

After a string of provocative roles that included a cameo in “National Lampoon’s Animal House” (1978) as a professor dating a student, he worked with director Robert Redford in “Ordinary People,” playing a father grieving his son’s accidental death.

He won an Emmy for his work as the head of a Soviet detective squad in the 1995 HBO film “Citizen X” and also starred in the “Hunger Games” films as the duplicitous President Snow.

While never Oscar-nominated, he was presented with an honorary award in 2017 for what the Motion Picture Academy called “a lifetime of indelible characters, rendered with unwavering truthfulness.”
