Famous fans, colleagues and family pay tribute to actor Donald Sutherland, the star of “M.A.S.H.” “Klute” and “The Hunger Games” who died at age 88.

“I was blessed to direct him in #Backdraft. One of the most intelligent, interesting & engrossing film actors of all time. Incredible range, creative courage & dedication to serving the story & the audience with supreme excellence.” – Ron Howard, on X.

“With a heavy heart, I tell you that my father, Donald Sutherland, has passed away. I personally think one of the most important actors in the history of film. Never daunted by a role, good, bad or ugly. He loved what he did and did what he loved, and one can never ask for more than that. A life well lived.” – Actor and Sutherland’s son, Kiefer Sutherland, on X.

“He starred in two of my very favourite and most influential films – “˜Don’t Look Now’ and the 1978 “˜Invasion Of The Bodysnatchers’. But that is just the tip of the iceberg in terms of his legendary filmography. He was a funny, laconic, but also intense and dramatic presence in so many memorable movies.” – Director Edgar Wright, on Instagram.
