Donald Sutherland was as happy as a kid in a candy store when he received his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame two weeks ago ? right next to his "24" star son Kiefer's marker. The day after the event, the 75-year-old veteran of such films as Robert Altman's 1970 "MASH," Nicolas Roeg's 1973 "Don't Look Now," Bernardo Bertolucci's 1976 epic "1900," Federico Fellini's 1976 "Casanova" and, let us not forget, 1978's "Animal House," is still glowing. "When you get to be my age ? just think about it," says Sutherland, relaxing in his publicist's West Hollywood office.

DONALD Sutherland is intimidating. Perhaps it is his stature -- he's 6 feet 4 -- or the shock of white hair or the piercing blue eyes. Maybe it's that voice, filled with gravitas. "What are we talking about?" he asks in a businesslike manner at the outset of a recent interview. A little bit of everything. Sutherland, a fit, handsome 70, is everywhere these days.

It's part of an actor's job, and pleasure, to keep us guessing--to make sure we can't always be sure when it comes to a character's motives, relative trustworthiness or enigmatic reasoning. Donald Sutherland has been playing enigma variations his entire career, across a wide range of sympathetic and despicable assignments.
