“I don’t think of him as evil,” says Sutherland of Snow. “He’s doing his job as a lifelong administrator and bureaucrat, who is trying to keep his country part of societal continuum.”
… “Gary (Ross) wanted to underscore how you maintain control, and maintain an oligarchy,” Sutherland says. “That’s why he wrote the sequence with me describing hope and fear, and he did it with such an exquisite economy.”
[Sutherland] says he “likes the fact it’s a political movie for a generation that might not know its politics…To be a part of a film that might activate a generation is really important to me.”
[On Jennifer Lawrence] “Jennifer has no tricks and no gimmicks. She’s amazing, and even she doesn’t know how she does it.”

Movies.com recently had a chance to sit down with Liam Hemsworth who talked about how he brought his character, Gale, to life on the big screen. For those of you who have seen the movie how do you think he did?
Movies.com: You have to provide a grounding influence in a world that’s often very fantastical. What if anything did you think about to include to create a juxtaposition between District 12 and the capital?
Liam Hemsworth: The world that District 12 is living in is very realistic – it’s not futuristic in any way. They’re living in depression and they’re living in basically 1900s technology. They’re hunting for food, a lot of them, and trying to get what little money they can from different jobs, but it’s a pretty grim place to live in. I remember when we shot the Reaping scenes, we had three or four hundred extras on set, and all of these young kids and young adults, and the thought I think was in every mind – if this was real, and we really all were standing here waiting for someone’s name to get called out that might be your brother or your sister or your best friend, as an actor it was already all there. It was so strong and powerful, the idea and the theme, that it was easy as an actor to convey that.
In this special episode we play a clip of each song from the Hunger Games Companion CD and then discuss where it may fit into the book and if it fits with the taste of HG fans.
What did you guys think of the movie? It was very close to the book. I thought Jenn carried the movie and really made it incredible. Hopefully all you were satisfated as well. It wasn’t perfect but was still really great!
