  • I've been completely faithful to the casting people. Trusted their judgement and have been happy with the results (the pictures we've seen).

    However, I am having such a hard time with this one. He's the President of the Capital - he should look young and beautiful but sinister. Thats the way they portrayed him in the books-no one ages that much in the capital.

    Oh well, I love Donald Sutterland as an actor so I know he will play it perfect.

    I think I didn't read the last casting thread (whoops). But jeebus it makes me literally cringe when I see 'casted'.

    He was super old. He was at the first Hunger Games so he's older than 75. He'd be at least 110 if the rule of being 35 to take presidential office still applied. So I think Donald Suthlerland looks pretty young for 110!

    Donald Sutherland is a BAMF. He channels Snow perfectly.

  • NO!  I hate it!!!!!!!

    I adore Donald Sutherland, but I want to hate President Snow.  In my head he looks evil in the creepiest way possible - there is no way they can make DS look that way so I can buy it.  And if they do I think it would make me sad.

    I adore DS too. I want him to be my grandpa. But did you ever see the show Dirty Sexy Money? He can SO pull off Snow.

    Nope.  I guess I tend to think of him in his more lovable roles... *sigh* Maybe I need to find something to watch that will ease me in to his "bad guy" persona, haha!

    Totally agree - for me he was always a perfect dirty character, and rarely did I like him as a good guy.

    Just what I was thinking! He was a great evil good guy doing all sorts of underhanded business "for the good of the family" 

    MJ SPOILERS!!!

     

     

    I hope they make MJ b/c I would LOVE to see DS in that final scene with Katniss before the execution. He would nail it for sure!

  • Picturing Donald Sutherland with big puffy lips ::shudder::

    I'm glad they chose a star. It'll be good having someone who can act rather than risk the role on someone who could be totally unconvincing and over the top.

    I know he really is old, but everyone has plastic surgery in the capital so the look perfect all through life, right? They take away all Katniss' scares/battle wounds and wanted to do plastic surgery on her to make her "perfect" after the Games. I didn't think the Capital would allow things like wrinkles. Stick out tongue

    I loved loved loved Dirty Sexy Money and DS is one of my favorites, so if they are gonna pick an old guy, I'm glad its him.

    Yes

    Love this casting!  I always pictured someone like Patrick Stewart, but I'm totally on board with Donald Sutherland.  I think Pink is the New Blog said it perfectly for me, a lot of it is in the distinctive voice he has.  And now I want to watch Dirty Sexy Money :)

  • I think he'll do a great job.

    Yes 

  • The Snow in my head always looked like Malcolm McDowell, but I think Donald Sutherland will be great.  He can definitely do sinister.
  • Yes

    I think this is an awesome choice. He will rock this!
