The father of Kiefer Sutherland will portray the ruthless leader of Panem who will be the chief villain in the forthcoming movie.

Lionsgate Films has added an actor to "The Hunger Games" to take the role of a pivotal character. The studio has made it official that Donald Sutherland will star as President Coriolanus Snow, the main antagonist in the upcoming film.

President Snow is the leader of Panem, a place where the titular competition takes place. An elder man with a snake-like appearance, he is also the head of the Capitol, which holds the competition to show off its power over the citizens. To cap it all, he is also described as being "cruel and ruthless in his intimidation and control tactics".

Sutherland's filmography has expanded over 50 years, and includes some notable films. He starred in "M*A*S*H", "Ordinary People", and "Klute and Kelly's Heroes". He recently portrayed Aquila in "The Eagle" opposite Channing Tatum. The father of Kiefer Sutherland will next be seen in "Horrible Bosses".

An adaptation of Suzanne Collins' best-selling trilogy, "The Hunger Games" follows 16-year-old Katniss Everdeen who lives with her mother and younger sister in the poorest district of Panem, in the apocalyptic America. When her sister is chosen by lottery to participate in a fight-to-the-death annual event called the Hunger Games, she steps up to go in her place.

The cast ensemble for the thriller film includes Jennifer Lawrence who stars as the main character. Liam Hemsworth, Josh Hutcherson, and Stanley Tucci serve as the supporting actors. Lionsgate Films aims to release it in theater Stateside on March 23, 2012.
