Sutherland Set To Play “Hunger Games”

Lionsgate and the filmmakers behind the upcoming “The Hunger Games” have announced that Donald Sutherland has been cast in the role of President Snow in the much anticipated film adaptation of Suzanne Collins’ best-selling novel.

In the books, President Snow has been the autocratic ruler of Panem and its contained districts for some 25 years at the outset of the story.

With a snake-like appearance, he is cruel and ruthless in his intimidation and control tactics. Sutherland will likely have signed for three films as he’s the main antagonist of the trilogy.
