Donald Sutherland has joined the HBO limited series, The Undoing, which is based on the book, You Should Have Known by Jean Hanff Korelitz. The actor will join Nicole Kidman and Hugh Grant in the upcoming production.
The Undoing centres on Grace Sachs (Kidman) who is living the only life she ever wanted for herself. She’s a successful therapist, has a devoted husband (Grant) and young son who attends an elite private school in New York City.
Overnight a chasm opens in her life: a violent death, a missing husband, and, in the place of a man Grace thought she knew, only a chain of terrible revelations. Left behind in the wake of a spreading and very public disaster, and horrified by the ways in which she has failed to heed her own advice, Grace must dismantle one life and create another for her child and herself.
Sutherland’s inclusion to The Undoing should bode well for the series. The actor has an impressive body of work ranging from motion pictures to television series. He has featured in over 150 films including classics such as The Dirty Dozen, M*A*S*H, Space Cowboys and The Hunger Games film series. Most recently, Sutherland starred as J. Paul Getty in director Danny Boyle’s FX anthology series Trust and in Sony Classics The Leisure Seeker, opposite Helen Mirren.
