Donald Sutherland Joins HBO Miniseries 'The Undoing' Starring Nicole Kidman
HBO never seems to lack for talent.
The premium network's upcoming miniseries "The Undoing" has added another big name. Donald Sutherland is the latest actor to snatch a role, Variety reports. He joins Nicole Kidman and Hugh Grant, who were already on board.
Based on Jean Hanff Korelitz's book "You Should Have Known," the upcoming limited series follows Grace Sachs (Kidman), a therapist whose perfect world is turned upside down when her husband (Grant) goes missing and other crises occur. Sutherland is set to play Franklin Renner, Grace's father, who tries to protect her and her daughter as all these disasters put them in the public eye.
Sutherland has a long list of both TV and film credits. Some of his big roles include 1967's "The Dirty Dozen," 1978's "Invasion of the Body Snatchers," and the Hunger Games series. He received an Academy Honorary Award in 2017.
The six-episode run of "The Undoing" will be directed by Susanne Bier. She is also executive producing alongside Kidman, Per Saari, Bruna Papandrea, and creator and showrunner David E. Kelley, all of whom also work on the hit HBO series "Big Little Lies."
The premiere date of "The Undoing" has not yet been announced.
