As part of the effort to cast the nearly 2 million characters in the Hunger Games, Donald Sutherland has generously offered his efforts to the project. And he's not just playing some rube, either - he's none other than President Snow. Here's a brief description of the character:
"Snow is the autocratic ruler of Panem who uses the violent Hunger Games as a way to maintain control"

[post-album postid="205261" item="1"] Well, you know, whatever it takes to maintain control, right? I don't really blame him for pitting teenagers against each other in fights to the death. President Sutherland is joining Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Toby Jones, Lenny Kravitz, Woody Harrelson, Stanley Tucci, Wes Bentley and Elizabeth Banks in the cast. Hey, don't blame me, I voted for James Garner. (Deadline)
