In a week that's been full of Hunger Games casting news, the highly anticipated announcement of the District 2 Tributes, Cato and Clove, has finally arrived. Cato will be played by Alexander Ludwig, and Isabelle Fuhrman will be taking on the role of Clove. Like the previous Tributes, these casting decisions were released on The Hunger Games Facebook page.
These two new cast members aren't as new to Hollywood as some of the other Tributes. Ludwig has appeared in Race To Witch Mountain, and The Seeker: The Dark Is Rising, while Fuhrman worked on Hounddog but is probably best known as the creepy little girl/woman in Orphan.
Earlier this week, Lionsgate announced that Woody Harrelson has the role of Haymitch Abernathy, while Stanley Tucci will be playing Caesar Flickerman. How about a casting recap? >> Posted 05.11.11 by Mandy
For a few lucky young actors, plans for Saturday include testing for one of two male lead roles for the highly anticipated movie adaption of Hunger Games.
The Hollywood Report writes that five actors are testing today for the role of Peeta, the love interest of Katniss Everdeen, who will be played by Jennifer Lawrence — Josh Hutcherson (pictured), 18, (The Kids Are All Right), Alexander Ludwig, 19, (Escape to Witch Mountain), Hunter Parrish, 23, (Weeds), Lucas Till, 20, (X-Men: First Class), and Evan Peters, 24, (Kick-Ass).
Four hopefuls are also auditioning for the role of Gale — Liam Hemsworth (The Last Song), David Henrie (Wizards of Waverly Place), Robbie Amell (True Jackson, VP), and Drew Roy (Hannah Montana).
THR reports that the actors are testing in front of director Gary Ross. Lawrence is set to already co-star with one of the hopefuls — Till in this summer's X-Men: First Class.
Two of these actors will soon be on the cusp of fame. What did you do this weekend? Who are your picks for Gala and Peeta? Posted 03.26.11 by reelz
