    Tributes from all his co workers, specially the people he has worked with on ‘Hunger Games’ are flooding in.

    Gary Ross, director of the first ‘Hunger Games‘ film, told THR in a statement of Sutherland: “Donald. He was just so wonderful. Kind, gracious, and thoughtful–and so well read. He had Prufrock memorized, and he’d give me sections of it, out loud, like a book on tape. More than anything there was this loving enthusiasm for the work. It wasn’t enough to do just do the job–he had to feel the job and he wanted you to feel it all with him in every second.”

    Nina Jacobson, producer of ‘Hunger Games’ said, “Snow has fallen and we couldn’t be more heartbroken. Donald Sutherland was a gentleman, a thinker and a master of his craft. We have lost one of the true reigning greats of our industry. Our hearts go out to his family and his legion of fans around the world.”

    Sutherland’s memoir, ‘Made Up, But Still True’ is set to come out this November.
