List of previously released Capitol portraits:
A photo of Donald Sutherland in costume as President Snow is floating around Tumblr. Our first look at President Snow was posted on tumblr by this user ; although the poster has no info about the picture and where it came from it does look like he is in his Panem-Winter clothing.
UPDATE: Looks like the tumblr user got their photos from ImNotObsessed.com (gallery in read more)
And this is definitely the Quarter Quell announcement as you can see a boy dressed in all white with a wooden box in the background in one of the pictures.
In an interview with Starburst Magazine, Hunger Games actor Donald Sutherland talked about his role as President Snow and how his acting career had started.
So the film more than lived up to your expectations then?
I am overwhelmed by it. It almost makes me weep. I just loved it; it’s important for this fragmented society that we live in. And it’s not just the United States but the world in general. And I do so hope Barack Obama gets re-elected.
It’s almost as if The Hunger Games could end up being the ultimate reality show, for real.
According to the Wrap, Donald Sutherland, who plays President Snow in The Hunger Games, is in final talks to join the action thriller Shoot the Breeze. The movie will be directed by Raza Mallal.
The story follows a renegade Moscow detective investigating the murder of a Chechen war reporter.
After reading the Hunger Games trilogy, Donald Sutherland wrote a letter to director Gary Ross sharing his insight about President Snow, the character he played in the movie.
Dear Gary Ross:
Power. That’s what this is about? Yes? Power and the forces that are manipulated by the powerful men and bureaucracies trying to maintain control and possession of that power?
Power perpetrates war and oppression to maintain itself until it finally topples over with the bureaucratic weight of itself and sinks into the pages of history (except in Texas), leaving lessons that need to be learned unlearned.
Power corrupts, and, in many cases, absolute power makes you really horny. Clinton, Chirac, Mao, Mitterrand.
