New Brunswick-born acting legend Donald Sutherland has died at age 88. His son Kiefer Sutherland announced the news in a social media post.

The elder Sutherland's career spanned more than 50 years and ranged from the snarky surgeon Hawkeye Pierce in the film version of "M.A.S.H.'' to the fascist dictator President Snow in "The Hunger Games'' franchise.

Sutherland also starred in the 1978 remake of "Invasion of the Body Snatchers'' and the 2005 version of "Pride & Prejudice.'' Though he was in over 100 films, Sutherland was never nominated for an Academy Award.

He did, however, receive an honorary Oscar, two BAFTA nominations, an Emmy Award and two Golden Globes. Here is sound from a clip of "Pride & Prejudice.
