Donald Sutherland, who plays President Snow in The Hunger Games, has been in France where he received the Commander of Arts and Letters medal.
While there he spoke to the Wall Street Journal about the more than 100 roles he’s played, including his part in The Hunger Games. Donald Sutherland has always been quite outspoken about why he loves the story created by Suzanne Collins and the message it sends young people. He explained that he feels the film shows what being a capitalist in the United States is.
“As President Snow, the role I play in the film, I’m a true totalitarian. But the character is really smart, and as a politician, he has nothing to lose. He administers fear and hope. The film also shows what being a capitalist is in the United States. It’s the oppressive oligarchy of the privileged.”
He also revealed that he’s looking forward to the SEPTEMBER shoot of Catching Fire.
So it looks like The Hunger Games will have only just been released on DVD in August, with the cast and crew backing straight up to go into a filming schedule the very next month.
We can hardly wait!
