2Has English, German and Scottish ancestry.
3He was awarded a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at 7024 Hollywood Boulevard in Hollywood, California on January 26, 2011.
4He was an ardent fan of the Montreal Expos baseball team ever since it was founded. In the beginning of the 1983 season, when it looked like the team would finally be good enough to win the National League title, he ordered his agent not to accept any offers during the season, so that he could follow the team without distractions, even to the point of attending all of their games on their road trips. (The Expos failed to meet expectations and finished third).
5Member of the 'Official Competition' jury at the 69th Cannes International Film Festival in 2016.
6Has worked with eight directors who have won a Best Director Oscar: John Schlesinger, Bernardo Bertolucci, Robert Redford, Ron Howard, Oliver Stone, Barry Levinson, Clint Eastwood and Anthony Minghella.

8Has played a grieving father in both Don't Look Now (1973) and Ordinary People (1980).
9Has been in four movies where aliens took over human beings: Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978), The Puppet Masters (1994), Virus (1999), and Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within (2001). In Virus (1999), they made human-robot hybrids. In the Final Fantasy movie, they were spirits from another planet that took over and killed the humans.
10When polled by the American Film Institute, Sutherland chose Great Expectations (1946) as his favorite film.
11As of 2014, has appeared in three films that were nominated for the Best Picture Oscar: MASH (1970), Ordinary People (1980) and JFK (1991). Ordinary People (1980) won in the category.
12Has rarely worked more than once with the same film director, which is something quite uncommon for an actor with a long career. The only exceptions he made (so far) are appearing in four films directed by Christian Duguay, two films by Nicolas Roeg, two films by Robert Towne, two films by Hugh Hudson and three films by Francis Lawrence.
13He was awarded a star on Canada's Walk of Fame in Toronto, Ontario in 2000.
14He and his son Kiefer Sutherland have both played artist Paul Gauguin.

16In the "making of" documentary for The Dirty Dozen (1967) Special Edition DVD, Sutherland says the was one of the "last dozen", meaning he was not going to have many lines. However when they were preparing to film the scene where Major Reisman ('Lee Marvin' (I) (qV)) had to convince Colonel Breed (Robert Ryan) that a general was among them, it was supposed to be Posey (Clint Walker). However, Walker refused to do the scene so director Robert Aldrich picked Sutherland to do the scene. After that, Sutherland's role was expanded rather more. The Dirty Dozen (1967) is credited with helping Sutherland get more attention from filmmakers, thus launching his career. According to Sutherland, sometime later, Aldrich asked him to be in another movie but Sutherland declined. He says in the documentary that turning down Aldrich was one of his greatest regrets as an actor as he felt he owed Aldrich for helping to launch his career.
17Partook in the opening ceremony of the 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver as the voice-over narrator describing the history of Canada and was also one of the flag bearers of the Olympic flag.
18Was offered the role of Wyatt Earp in Doctor Who (1963): The Gunfighters but was not free so John Alderson took the role.
19His son, Kiefer Sutherland, appeared in Stand by Me (1986), based on a short story by Stephen King. Donald later appeared in Salem's Lot (2004).

20Lives in Santa Monica, California.
21Is a huge fan of the television series 24 (2001), and never misses an episode. He declined an offer to play Jack Bauer's father, Philip Bauer, in the series' sixth season.
22Achieved cinematic fame in two completely different and contrasting war films. One was the cynical, edgy, sarcastic Korean War comedy MASH (1970), and the other was the gritty, action packed, violent World War II action film The Dirty Dozen (1967).
23Although several sources list that he and Francine Racette were married in 1974, Donald stated in a May 2000 London Daily Mail article that they did not marry until August 1990. They met in 1974 and lived together for 16 years.

25Originally wanted to be a sculptor, but decided to be an actor after witnessing people praise a drawing of Churchill that he thought was awful (he realized he could not make art to please other people). He had never attended a theater performance, and still had not when he received his first role. Thus he was behind the proscenium arch before ever having been in front of it.

27Is distantly related to the former Governor of Vermont, Howard Dean.

Quotes

#Quote
1Jennifer Lawrence is as good an actress as you're going to find anywhere. In The Hunger Games (2012), she's playing a character who's a genius in the Shavian sense that Joan of Arc was a genius. And she does it with such clarity. It's incredible to see how clearly that character develops.
2[on Julie Christie] Julie has such a wonderful film presence and fulfills everything I admire in a performer in that she -- more specifically than almost anyone else -- works for the director and recognizes that the film is created by the director in the way Jeanne Moreau did for Louis Malle.
3[on Jane Fonda] Jane's person is more specific than most of us. She's well disciplined and knows what she wants and where she's going and works objectively to apply all her information to that intention. With Jane, the character and force is embodied in her persona and it's a lovely, delicate and self-deprecating human.
4[on his early roles] Well, I was always cast as an artistic homicidal maniac. But at least I was artistic!
5Frank Lloyd Wright designed the house I was living in. From what I understood, he was having an affair with the wife of the man he was designing the house for. That man was very tall. So Wright, short and vain, designs the house in such a way that a tall person couldn't live in it without severe cranial damage. I hit my head *all* the time.
6When you're working for a good director, you become subjective and submissive. You become his concubine. All that you're seeking is his pleasure.
7I was up for a great part but they told me: "Sorry, you're the best actor but this part calls for a guy-next-door type. You don't look as if you've ever lived next door to anyone."
8Pauline Kael reviewed The Day of the Locust (1975): "There's nothing specifically wrong with Donald Sutherland's performance. It's just awful." That was the most destructive, stupid piece of criticism I've ever received. I stopped reading reviews after that.
