Post: January 26, 2011

New Brunswick native and Hollywood veteran Donald Sutherland becomes the 2430th star to take up residency on the storied Walk of Fame.

Sutherland called the honour “lovely” joking that at his age it was a better "stone" to get than a headstone in cemetery. "This marker I can actually come and visit. I could get a chair and sit here, or a bucket and a mop and clean it, and make sure that people don't step on it."

The 75 year old actor pictured here with his forthcoming Horrible Bosses co-star and friend Colin Farrell, can be seen in his latest release The Mechanic this Friday (01/28/11), in addition to The Eagle due out on February 11th.

I miss you very much" wrote Kiefer Sutherland (absent due to a NY Production) in a letter read by Farrell. 

 Today marks yet another honour for the Saint John born actor - 2 Golden Globes, an Emmy along with multiple other nominations. Sutherland received the pretigious Order of Canada back in 1978 and earned his place on the Canadian Walk of Fame in 2000.

Once again Mr. Sutherland - We salute you!!! SABS
