By now you have probably seen the Hunger Games. If you haven’t, then it’s time to come out from under your rock!
There has been a lot of talk about the actors/actresses that were chosen for the movie and how they don’t fit the characters in the book1, and to be honest, I think people have missed the biggest casting flaw!2
Donald Sutherland as President Snow!?
Look at that face. He looks so trustworthy, I’d want him to run my post-apocalyptic nation! There goes the dystopian world!
Snow is described as small, thin, and “pretty much creepy”.3 He mouth smells like roses and blood, he’s a perfectionist and a cruel tyrant. Basically, he’s scary!
Donald Sutherland can offer kids candy from the back of a truck and moms will let him. Basically, not scary!
Snow is evil. Sutherland is well like a teddy bear4. And that’s my problem with Snow.
1 Didn’t you know it was a book? How are we acquainted again?
2 To be honest, why the issue in the first place, all the actors/actresses did a great job!
3I’m certain I’m quoting directly from the book here.
4 Who did a great job portraying Snow ;)
