Sutherland’s final works include Mr. Harrigan’s Phone and Moonfall. He is survived by his wife, Francine Racette, and their children. Sutherland’s memoir, Made Up, But Still True, is set for posthumous release in November. His legacy is celebrated by colleagues like Helen Mirren, Jane Fonda, and directors Ron Howard and Edgar Wright.
