Donald Sutherland Cast in 'Hunger Games'

Donald Sutherland is the latest—and possibly the last—star to be cast in a major role in The Hunger Games. The Golden Globe-winning actor will play President Snow in the film adaptation of Suzanne Collins' popular trilogy young adult adult novels. Deadline reports:

Lionsgate has set Donald Sutherland to play the role of President Snow in The Hunger Games, the trilogy that will be directed by Gary Ross based on the Suzanne Collins novels. Snow is the autocratic ruler of Panem who uses the violent Hunger Games as a way to maintain control.

This is just the latest high-profile Hunger Games casting announcement. So far, the film's roster of stars includes Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Elizabeth Banks, Stanley Tucci, Woody Harrelson, and Lenny Kravitz. Sutherland's casting will probably mark the end of the major Hunger Games announcements, though—there just aren't that many more big characters to fill.
