Donald Sutherland has been cast to play the role of President Snow in The Hunger Games, according to the Hollywood Reporter

The 75-year-old veteran actor will star alongside Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Woody Harrelson in the film based on the popular books by Suzanne Collins. 

In the book, Katniss Everdeen (Lawrence) joins a survival contest in order to save her community. The story takes place in the future, where teenagers are chosen at random to participate on the TV show Hunger Games, which forces them to compete to the death.

In Collins' novel, President Snow is described as "cruel and ruthless in his intimidation and control tactics."
