DONALD SUTHERLAND, DEAD AT 88

Donald Sutherland died on June 20, 2024, at age 88 after what was only reported as a "long illness." The renowned Canadian actor appeared in a variety of roles throughout his long life and decided he wanted to be an actor at just 16 years old. He told his father his plans while the pair were on a drive in his home province of Nova Scotia. "I have no idea why I thought to become an actor," he remarked. "Neither of us had ever been to the theatre before."
