Donald Sutherland Elected President of ‘The Hunger Games’

All of this Hunger Games casting seems tricky because there are apparently four-thousand characters, and announcements are made weekly no matter how newsworthy. Fortunately, instead of Someone You Don’t Know being cast as A Character You Don’t Know – this week delivers a bona fide screen legend into the world of children fighting to the death.

According to a press release, Donald Sutherland will be joining the cast as President Snow – a figure who is described as “snake-like” and “ruthless.” That should be child’s play for Sutherland.

There’s not much more to say than that. With an Academy Award nominee leading the pack and a supporting cast that includes strong young talent mixed in with storied veterans, the pieces are coming together for truly great potential. Sutherland is just the latest (and maybe greatest) piece.
