Who does Donald Sutherland think he is, Mel Gibson? In Space Cowboys, Sutherland and his AARP-card-carrying costars James Garner, Clint Eastwood, and Tommy Lee Jones famously expose their naked backsides for all to see. ”It’s magnificent,” says the 65-year-old actor. ”There’s 250 years of ass up there on the screen.” (Actually, it’s 260 — but who’s counting?) Of course, Sutherland offered a memorable rear view in National Lampoon’s Animal House. ”That shot…wasn’t supposed to be in the movie,” Sutherland protests. ”This one I knew was coming.” But which geezer butt will most impress audiences? ”Not his,” insists Garner of Sutherland’s derriere. ”I have the best of the bunch.”
