Does Donald Sutherland Have Curly Hair?

Topic: Yidaho

No doubt I've blogged about my crush on Donald Sutherland before.

But Don't Look Now is on telly, I've eaten too many boiled gooseberries in sugar, and it occurs to me to wonder if his hair is really curly, and straightened now, or if he felt the need for a demi-wave for both this film and Invasion of the Body Snatchers. To be right for the theatrical demands of the part, you understand.

So I looked for a split screen comparison - fat old grey beard Donald with the straightening irons clamped to his silver barnet, versus permanent waved virile frizzheaded emu-faced Donald of the sixties. And found a startling reality behind the hair.

So startling, I can't even pin it down. But there's something going on - something very very wrong - with Donald Sutherland's hair.

Can these all be the same man?

Kenneth, I hope you go bald, slowly, in an awkward, non-pattern baldness kind of way. And I hope your girlfriend makes partner in her law firm and leaves your skinny ass for a younger, more attractive gentleman with a smokin' bod. And that they have lots of gorgeous children, while you grow old all alone and have to move in with your mother and start wearing shorts with black dress socks that offset your pale, skinny, hairy legs. And I hope Kenneth Smith isn't your real name, because eventually your girlfriend will google you and find this public declaration of love."

I love Jack Bauer's dad :)

Seriously - there's SUCH a resemblance between Kiefer and him though. The family likeness is pretty blatant, even down to the cheekbone structure!

Sutherland has really nice, thick wavy, not curly hair. Love the 'do from the 70's shown in your "Oh no, he's turned into a pod person!" moment from "Body Snatchers."
It seems everyone-- both men and women, were wearing that type of unset perm style then--it's pretty awful.
He looks really nice as older gentleman with a sorta mid-length mane and facial hair, I think.

Don't know if you've seen it or not, but wor' Don is currently starring in the new Barclays advert. With Gary Oldman. Best fucking thirty seconds of my life, that was.

Yeah, if you do an image search, there's tons where he looks the spit of Kiefer - usually if you can only see the top half of his face, or if he's podged up. Surprised me, I've never seen a resemblance before.

But then I'd never noticed the obvious placcy surgery before, either. To go from the face in the final picture to the elegantly dishevelled fiftysomething at the oscars last year cost somebody a lot of expensive staples, nuh?

I've been blo'ted! That made my day. :D

Everytime I see this comment, I can't stop giggling! :o)

Mmm, and especially so since I try whenever possible NOT to blo'te my favourite sites, either, so it takes more oomph/chutzpah for a fave to make it than an unknown.

Your post was way better written than Mr Smith's letter. And it made me go read The Vagina Monologues. (I'm not sure that's entirely a good thing, but Gloria Steinem always spices up the sex life somewhat.)

Well it's an honor to be among the Blo'ted. I'm inspired to start a web ring now.

(Realized that looks a little facetious. It's not meant that way.)

Good idea to link Kenneth Smith's name directly to the letter- for Google purposes I assume? I would do the same on my site but I've banned the Googlebot so I don't think it would do any good.

Of course!

Only just realised that I got blo'ted a few weeks ago! Trawling through my stats, and it popped up from there! Thanks! :)

Sigh. My best attempts at publicity, wasted. :o)

He certainly is a man of a million faces. And hairdos. He reminds me of someone (other than himself or Keifer) in the black and white with the beard pic.

Maybe the beard is Sean Connery-ish, a little.

Yeah, the horrors of excessive facial surgery, eh? He looks as wrinkly as a pre-lifted Pacino in one of those.
