Donald Sutherland Cast in The Hunger Games

Golden Globe-winner Donald Sutherland (pictured, via) has been cast as President Coriolanus Snow in The Hunger Games film adaptation.

Sutherland has acted in literary adaptations including Pride & Prejudice and The Eagle. He has also played roles in the television adaptations of Ken Follet‘s Pillars of the Earth and Robert Louis Stevenson‘s Treasure Island.

Here’s more about the character from the release: “President Snow has been the autocratic ruler of Panem and its contained districts for some 25 years at the outset of the story. He is cruel and ruthless in his intimidation and control tactics.”

In the past half hour, Hunger Games fans have mostly reacted positively to the news on Facebook. Some have even deemed this decision as “perfect.” What do you think of this casting choice?

Other actors who have recently signed onto the project include Nelson Ascencio as Flavius and Kimiko Gelman as Venia (members of Katniss Everdeen‘s prep team). Amber Chaney will be playing the redheaded Avox girl who acts as a servant for Katniss and Peeta during their pre-Games training period.
