Though I do get an annoyance with the slow trickle of casting on The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, it’s all been something of a non-issue for me, expressly since I’m someone who doesn’t bother to pay the proper attention. Here I am, however, now someone who is telling you that Lionsgate and Francis Lawrence have rounded out the main lineup with a group whose names have never crossed your eyes or ears.
Let’s get through this quick, shall we? Thanks to EW, we can read the list below:
James Logan will play District 5 Tribute Boy; Ivette Li-Sanchez is to be seen as District 5 Tribute Girl; Justin Hix has been put into the spot of District 6 Tribute Boy; coming in as District 6 Tribute Girl is Megan Hayes; look out for Bobby Jordan as Blight; John Casino barks up the place as Woof; fan-favorite Cecilia (?) is taken by Elena Sanchez; masculinity enters the prawn zone with Daniel Bernhardt as District 9 Tribute Boy, while the South Africans (wrong movie, I know) get in touch with their feminine side when Marian Greene is seen as the District 9 Tribute Girl; and District 10 get their players in the form of Jackson Spidell & Tiffany Waxler.
Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, and Liam Hemsworth return to star opposite newcomers Philip Seymour Hoffman, Amanda Plummer, Jeffrey Wright, Sam Claflin, Jena Malone, Meta Golding, Bruno Gunn, Alan Ritchson, E. Roger Mitchell, and Lynn Cohen. The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is scheduled to open on November 15th, 2013.
