by at . Comments

One of the final big castings for The Hunger Games has finally been revealed.  Donald Sutherland will play the role of the evil President Snow -- the man in charge who sanctions and organizes the 'Hunger Games' every year. 

Snow becomes a huge threat to Katniss when he takes a disliking to her in the trilogy.  He is the autocratic ruler of Panem and its 12 districts for 25 years when the story begins.  He is ruthless in his intimidation tactics and has the appearance of a snake -- especially around his eyes.

Sutherland is an iconic Hollywood actor who can be seen this summer in Horrible Bosses and recently starred in The Mechanic opposite Jason Statham and Ben Foster.
