Donald Sutherland has lavished praise on the Hunger Games's "perfect" script.
The veteran actor plays sinister President Snow in the highly-anticipated movie adaptation of Suzanne Collins' hit novel.
And he said working with the film's writer and director Gary Ross was a "wonderful" experience.
"Now that I know Gary Ross, I would fight tooth and nail to work with him," he said.
"He's brilliant, he's absolutely exquisite, his script was perfect and his directing was wonderful."
The Hunger Games, which is scheduled for release on March 23, stars Jennifer Lawrence as feisty heroine Katniss Everdeen.
It also features Josh Hutcherson, Woody Harrelson and Elizabeth Banks.
