Donald Sutherland, actor of “The Hunger Games,” has died

According to The Hollywood Reporter, his death took place after a long illness.

Donald Sutherland, the prolific Canadian film and television actor, died this Thursday, June 20, at the age of 88 in Miami. “MASH” and “The Hunger Games” were two of his most notable films.

Kiefer Sutherland, the actor's son, confirmed his father's death, AP reported without giving further details.

“Personally, I think he's one of the greatest actors in film history,” Kiefer Sutherland said in X. “I was never intimidated by a role, good, bad or ugly. He loved what he did and did what he loved, and you can never ask for more than that.”

The tall, gaunt actor with a smile that could be sweet or devilish was known for unconventional characters like Hawkeye Piece (in Robert Altman's “MASH”); the hippie tank commander in “Kelly's Violence”, and a doped teacher in “Animal School”.

Before transitioning into a long career as a respected character actor, Sutherland epitomized the unpredictable, anti-establishment cinema of the 1970s.

Over the decades, Sutherland showed his range in more buttoned-down but still eccentric roles in Robert Redford's "People Like One" and Oliver Stone's "JFK: Cold Case."

"I love working. I passionately love to work,” Sutherland told Charlie Rose in 1998. “I love feeling like my hand fits into some other character's glove. I feel great freedom, time stops for me. "I'm not as crazy as I used to be, but I'm still a little crazy."

He received an honorary Oscar in 2017.
