Donald Sutherland, your new president ... of Panem. (Reuters/Mario Anzuoni )

Donald Sutherland has joined the cast of “The Hunger Games,” signing on to play President Snow, the cruel leader of Panem, otherwise known as what’s left of North American society in Suzanne Collins’s fictional universe.

(Hey, can Kiefer Sutherland make a cameo appearance in the movie just so he can refer to his dad as Mr. President, in his gravelly serious Jack Bauer voice? No? Too distracting? Darn.)

According to Vulture, this should bring the seemingly endless flurry of ”Hunger Games”-related casting announcements to an end. Now we can all turn our attention to what really matters: keeping track of photos of Jennifer Lawrence that get leaked from the “Hunger Games” set in Wilmington, N.C.
