Early life[edit] Sutherland was born in Saint John, New Brunswick, the son of Dorothy Isobel (née McNichol; 1892–1956) and Frederick McLea Sutherland (1894–1983), who worked in sales and ran the local gas, electricity and bus company.[2][9] He is of Scottish, German and English ancestry.[10][11] As a child, he had rheumatic fever, hepatitis, and poliomyelitis. His teenage years were spent in Bridgewater, Nova Scotia.[12] He obtained his first part-time job, at the age of 14, as a news correspondent for local radio station CKBW. Sutherland graduated from Bridgewater High School. He then studied at Victoria College, University of Toronto, where he met his first wife Lois Hardwick (not to be confused with the child star of the same name), and graduated with a double major in engineering and drama. He had at one point been a member of the "UC Follies" comedy troupe in Toronto. He changed his mind about becoming an engineer, and left Canada
Canada
for Britain in 1957,[13] studying at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art. Career[edit] Early work[edit] After quitting the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA), Sutherland spent a year and a half at the Perth Repertory Theatre in Scotland.[14] In the early to mid-1960s, Sutherland began to gain small roles in British films and TV (such as a hotel receptionist in The Sentimental Agent
The Sentimental Agent
episode 'A Very Desirable Plot' (1963)). He featured alongside Christopher Lee

in horror films such as Castle of the Living Dead (1964) and Dr. Terror's House of Horrors

(1965). He also had a supporting role in the Hammer Films

production Die! Die! My Darling! (1965), with Tallulah Bankhead

and Stefanie Powers. In the same year, he appeared in the Cold War

classic The Bedford Incident and appeared in the TV series The Saint, in the 1965 episode "The Happy Suicide",[15] and in the TV series Gideon's Way, in the 1966 episode "The Millionaire's Daughter". In 1966, Sutherland appeared in the BBC TV play Lee Oswald-Assassin, playing a friend of Lee Harvey Oswald, Charles Givens (even though Givens himself was an African-American). In 1967, he appeared in "The Superlative Seven," an episode of The Avengers. He also made a second, and more substantial appearance in The Saint. The episode, "Escape Route," was directed by the show's star, Roger Moore, who later recalled that Sutherland "asked me if he could show it to some producers as he was up for an important role... they came to view a rough cut and he got The Dirty Dozen."[16] The film, which starred Lee Marvin
Lee Marvin
and Charles Bronson, was the 5th highest-grossing film of 1967 and MGM's highest-grossing movie of the year.[17] In 1968, after the breakthrough in the UK-filmed The Dirty Dozen, Sutherland left London for Hollywood.[13] He then appeared in two war films, playing the lead role as "Hawkeye" Pierce in Robert Altman's MASH in 1970; and, again in 1970, as hippie tank commander "Oddball" in Kelly's Heroes. Mid-career: 1972–2000[edit] Sutherland starred with Gene Wilder
Gene Wilder
in the 1970 comedy Start the Revolution Without Me. During the filming of the Academy Award-winning detective thriller Klute, Sutherland had an intimate relationship with co-star Jane Fonda.[18] Sutherland and Fonda went on to co-produce and star together in the anti-Vietnam War documentary F.T.A.
F.T.A.
(1972), consisting of a series of sketches performed outside army bases in the Pacific Rim

and interviews with American troops who were then on active service. A follow up to their teaming up in Klute, Sutherland and Fonda performed together in Steelyard Blues
Steelyard Blues
(1973), a "freewheeling, Age-of-Aquarius, romp-and-roll caper" from the writer David S. Ward.[19]

The 1973 thriller Don't Look Now

was shot in Venice. Both Sutherland and co-star Julie Christie

were praised for their performances.

Sutherland found himself as a leading man throughout the 1970s in films such as the Venice-based psychological horror film Don't Look Now (1973), co-starring Julie Christie, a role which saw him nominated for the BAFTA Award for Best Actor, the war film The Eagle Has Landed (1976), Federico Fellini's Casanova (1976) and the thriller Eye of the Needle (which was filmed on location on the Isle of Mull, West Scotland). His role as Corpse of Lt. Robert Schmied in the Maximilian Schell's 1976 German film-directed End of the Game

is listed in crazy credits. and as the ever-optimistic health inspector in the science fiction/horror film Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978) alongside Brooke Adams and Jeff Goldblum. He helped launch the internationally popular Canadian television series Witness to Yesterday, with a performance as the Montreal doctor Norman Bethune, a physician and humanitarian, largely talking of Bethune's experiences in revolutionary China.[20] Sutherland also had a role as pot-smoking Professor Dave Jennings in National Lampoon's Animal House
Animal House
in 1978, making himself known to younger fans as a result of the movie's popularity. When cast, he was offered either $40,000 up front or a percentage of the movie. Thinking the movie would certainly not be a big success, he chose the 40K upfront payment. The movie eventually grossed $141.6 million.[21]

The Hunger Games
film franchise, in The Hunger Games (2012), The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (2013), The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 (2014), and Part 2 (2015). His role was well received by fans and critics. On March 26, 2012, he was a guest on the Opie and Anthony
Opie and Anthony
radio show. During his appearance to promote the first Hunger Games film, he mentioned that instead of accepting 2% of the gross revenue of Animal House he insisted on being paid a day's salary instead which amounted to $50,000, instead of the $2.8 million he would have earned had he accepted the offer made by Universal Studios. He also mentioned that he had been offered the lead roles in Deliverance
Deliverance
and Straw Dogs but turned both offers down because he did not want to appear in violent films at the time. The role in Deliverance
Deliverance
went to Jon Voight and the role in Straw Dogs to Dustin Hoffman, and both films enjoyed critical and box office success. After declining these violent roles, he quipped: "and then I played a fascist in 1900 by Bernardo Bertolucci." The television show Crossing Lines
