'Hunger Games': Donald Sutherland Cast as President Snow
The veteran actor joins the Lionsgate feature adaptation, led by Jennifer Lawrence and Woody Harrelson.
The pivotal role of President Snow has been cast in Lionsgate’s adaptation of Suzanne Collins’ trilogy, The Hunger Games.
Donald Sutherland will star alongside Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Woody Harrelson, Lionsgate announced Tuesday.
In Collins’ novel, President Snow is described as “cruel and ruthless in his intimidation and control tactics,” ruling over Panem and its contained districts for 25-plus years. He and District 12 tribute Katniss (Lawrence) have a contentious relationship throughout the series.
Also starring in Hunger Games, slated for a March 23, 2012 release, is Liam Hemsworth, Elizabeth Banks, Stanley Tucci, Lenny Kravitz, Paula Malcolmson and Wes Bentley.
Sutherland, repped by CAA and Special Artists Agency, can be seen in the upcoming films Sofia and Horrible Bosses, as well as the Treasure Island TV adaptation.
