Donald Sutherland’s career exploded in 1970 when he became the face of anarchy as the sexy army surgeon Hawkeye Pierce in Robert Altman’s M*A*S*H.
The classic anti-war movie captured the contemporary Age of Aquarius like a Polaroid snap, propelling the actor, over the next few years, into counterculture touchstones or groundbreaking films like Klute, Don’t Look Now, 1900, Fellini’s Casanova and The Day of the Locust.
So it’s perhaps a surprise that Mr. Sutherland has achieved superstardom among a new generation of moviegoers as the totalitarian leader of a repressive regime in that triumphant global juggernaut, the Hunger Games franchise. He plays the white-rose-sniffing, blood-spitting President Coriolanus Snow, the Darth Vader of the dystopian tale. Observer.com
