Hutton, the same year. We saw him opposite Jane Fonda in Klute by Alan J. Pakula, he was The Casanovas by Fellini, played the leading role in the remake of The invasion of the desecrators in 1978 and made us cry in the very beautiful People like the others the Robert Redford.

He knew how to get involved in more political films like A white and dry seasonadaptation of the novel by André Brink, in 1989, or even in the JFK by Oliver Stone, in 1991. The young audience had “discovered” him in the series Hunger Games in which he played President Snow.
