Actor Donald Sutherland, who worked in a number of films like "M*A*S*H," "Klute," "Animal House," "Hunger Games," and others, has away. He was eighty-eight. At the age of 91, Sutherland passed away in Miami on Thursday.

Kiefer, his son, confirmed his father's death in a statement.

"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," he said. "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 Donald Sutherland, who was born in Canada, became well-known in the late 1960s and early 1970s after appearing in the movies "The Dirty Dozen" and "M*A*S*H." But because of the several memorable projects that he worked on over his career, he became well-known to a number of generations.

His body of work spans a wide range of genres, from comedies like "Fool's Gold," the 2008 romantic comedy starring Kate Hudson and Matthew McConaughey, to dark thrillers like "JFK" and "Backdraft". In 1978, he also notably displayed a cheekier side in the classic "Animal House."

In recent years, he appeared on television on shows including "Trust," "Crossing Lines," and "Commander in Chief."
