15. The Dirty Dozen
The Dirty Dozen set the stage for Sutherland’s international stardom. The all-time classic World War II film was centered on military prisoners serving life or long-term prison sentences. The mission: survive a dangerous D-Day eve mission to have their sentences suspended. Sgt. Pinkley (Sutherland) did a heck of a job and nearly died doing it. Word is Sutherland was not the original cast for the commando role. He got the part after first choice, Clint Walker’s character found the role a little too difficult.
