HOLLYWOOD, Jan. 26 (UPI) -- Actor Donald Sutherland, who received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame Wednesday, joked that, unlike a cemetery headstone, it is a marker he can visit.

The star of "MASH," "Ordinary People" and "Klute" was honored with the 2,430th star on the Walk of Fame, the Beverly Hills Courier reported.

"This marker I can actually come and visit," he told a crowd assembled for the unveiling ceremony. `"No, I could get a chair and sit here, or a bucket and a mop and clean it, and make sure that people don't step on it.

"From the very bottom of my heart, I thank the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce for letting this happen," he said.

Sutherland, 75, has made more than 130 films including the Academy Award-winning "Ordinary People." His latest release, "The Mechanic," starring Jason Statham, is a remake of the 1972 Charles Bronson film of the same name.

Sutherland's star is set next to that of his son, actor Kiefer Sutherland.
