DONALD SUTHERLAND (Nigel Honeycutt) is one of the film industry's most prolific and versatile actors, with an impressive list of well over 100 credits, ranging from the biting political satire of Robert Altman's "M*A*S*H" and the intimate drama of Robert Redford's "Ordinary People" to the subtle intricacy of Alan J. Pakula's "Klute" and the eccentric romanticism of "Fellini's Casanova." He also garnered Golden Globe nominations for his roles in "M*A*S*H" and "Ordinary People."
Sutherland's career has encompassed collaborations with some of the most esteemed film directors working in the medium, on such projects as Bernardo Bertolucci's "1900"; "Don't Look Now," directed by Nicolas Roeg; "The Day of the Locust," directed by John Schlesinger; Paul Mazursky's "Alex in Wonderland"; "The Dirty Dozen," directed by Robert Aldrich; "The Eagle Has Landed," directed by John Sturges; Herbert Ross's "Max Dugan Returns"; Louis Malle's "Crackers"; "Backdraft," directed by Ron Howard; Oliver Stone's "JFK"; "Six Degrees of Separation," directed by Fred Schepisi; "Without Limits," directed by Robert Towne, for which Sutherland earned another Golden Globe nomination; Clint Eastwood's "Space Cowboys"; Anthony Minghella's "Cold Mountain"; and "Pride and Prejudice," directed by Joe Wright.
His more recent credits include "Reign Over Me," with Don Cheadle and Adam Sandler; "Ask the Dust," written and directed by Robert Towne; "Land of the Blind," with Ralph Fiennes; "An American Haunting," opposite Sissy Spacek; "American Gun," with Marcia Gay Harden and Forest Whitaker; and "Fierce People," directed by Griffin Dunne.
Also honored for his work on television, Sutherland was nominated for a Golden Globe for his role as Manhattan patriarch Tripp Darling in the new hit ABC series "Dirty Sexy Money," in which he stars opposite Peter Krause and Jill Clayburgh. He previously won both Golden Globe and Emmy Awards for his performance in the HBO movie "Citizen X." Sutherland won another Golden Globe for his portrayal of Clark Clifford, advisor to President Lyndon B. Johnson, in director John Frankenheimer's historical HBO drama "Path to War." In 2006, he earned dual Golden Globe nominations: one for his starring role as ambitious Speaker of the House Nathan Templeton on the series "Commander in Chief" and a second for his performance in the acclaimed Lifetime movie "Human Trafficking," for which he was also Emmy nominated.
On stage, Sutherland was nominated for an Outer Critics Circle Award as Best Actor for his role in the critically acclaimed, sold-out Lincoln Center engagement of Jon Robin Baitz's "Ten Unknowns." He also starred in the London, Los Angeles and Toronto productions of "Enigmatic Variations," an English-language translation (by his son Roeg Sutherland) of Eric-Emmanual Schmitt's renowned French play.
