Portrayed by Donald Sutherland in the original franchise, Tom will star in the upcoming movie, set to be directed by Francis Lawrence.

“Coriolanus Snow is many things — a survivor, a loyal friend, a cutthroat, a kid quick to fall in love, and a young man ambitious to his core,” Francis shared in a statement. “Tom‘s take on the character showed us all the complex ambiguities of this young man as he transforms into the tyrant he would become.”

In The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes, we will see Coriolanus Snow at age 18, years before he would become the tyrannical President of Panem.

Young Coriolanus is handsome and charming, and though the Snow family has fallen on hard times, he sees a chance for a change in his fortunes when he is chosen to be a mentor for the Tenth Hunger Games…only to have his elation dashed when he is assigned to mentor Lucy Gray Baird, the girl tribute from impoverished District 12.

But, after Lucy Gray commands all of Panem’s attention by defiantly singing during the reaping ceremony, Snow thinks he might be able to turn the odds in their favor.

Uniting their instincts for showmanship and newfound political savvy, Snow and Lucy’s race against time to survive will ultimately reveal who is a songbird, and who is a snake

Just recently, Tom appeared in HBO’s The Gilded Age, and is best known for playing William H. Bonney/Billy The Kid in the Epix series Billy The Kid.
