Donald Sutherland: Hunger Games' President Snow!

Donald Sutherland has been cast as President Snow in The Hunger Games.

The 75-year-old Canadian actor is known for his roles in M*A*S*H, Ordinary People, and Kelly’s Heroes. Donald also starred opposite Channing Tatum in The Eagle earlier in the year.

President Snow has been the autocratic ruler of Panem and its contained districts for some 25 years at the outset of the story, Lionsgate explained, adding, “He is cruel and ruthless in his intimidation and control tactics.”

The Hunger Games stars Jennifer Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth, and Josh Hutcherson and will be released on March 23, 2012.
