Personal Quote:

Frank Lloyd Wright designed the house I was living in. From what I understood, he was having an affair with the wife of the man he was designing the house for. That man was very tall. So Wright, short and vain, designs the house in such a way that a tall person couldn't live in it without severe cranial damage. I hit my head *all* the time. See more »

Trivia:

Being very tall, Sutherland has long since had a habit of slouching over so he could meet other actors eye to eye. See more »

Trademark:

Rich, mellifluous voice See more »

Star Sign:

Cancer
