Donald Sutherland is celebrating his 82nd birthday today. After earning his college degree, the Canadian-born Sutherland moved to England. During the sixties he began working in British film and television. He appeared in a few horror films starring Christopher Lee and on several British television programs, of which The Saint and The Avengers are likely the best known to American viewers. His film career progressed when he had a good supporting role in The Dirty Dozen, and he emerged as a star in 1970 when he appeared in two more war films: as the hippie tanker Oddball in Kelly’s Heroes, and as a Korean war Army doctor nicknamed “Hawkeye.”
It would be unwise the hassle the Hoff on his birthday. The star of Knight Rider and Baywatch turns 64 today. David Hasselhoff appeared here at Le Blog as a Razzie nominee for Worst Supporting Actor in 2012. Additionally, CMA Entertainer of the Year in 2014, Luke Bryan, has a landmark fortieth today.
