“Coriolanus Snow is many things — a survivor, a loyal friend, a cutthroat, a kid quick to fall in love, and a young man ambitious to his core,” director Francis Lawrence said. “Tom‘s take on the character showed us all the complex ambiguities of this young man as he transforms into the tyrant he would become.”

In The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes, we will see Coriolanus Snow (originally played by Donald Sutherland in The Hunger Games) at age 18, years before he would become the tyrannical President of Panem. Young Coriolanus is handsome and charming, and though the Snow family has fallen on hard times, he sees a chance for a change in his fortunes when he is chosen to be a mentor for the Tenth Hunger Games… only to have his elation dashed when he is assigned to mentor the girl tribute from impoverished District 12.

Tom is best known for playing William H. Bonney/Billy The Kid in the Epix series Billy The Kid. He’s also appeared on The Gilded Age, in Benediction, Scott and Sid and he’ll be in the upcoming film Discussion Materials.
