Hunger Games Cast Round-Up
One thing most Hunger Games fans agree on is that we have a very talented cast, for both the first movie and the upcoming Catching Fire. With all these actors in high demand, here’s a look at what some of them have been up to lately in the industry.
Dayo Okeniyi, our Thresh, is part of the cast of The Spectacular Now, a comedy-drama starring Miles Teller and Shailene Woodley. The movie is now in theaters and getting rave reviews from critics, so be sure to watch it if you get the chance! Dayo was also recently in the remake of Endless Love, starring Alex Pettyfer and Gabriella Wilde.
Leven Rambin, who played Glimmer in the first movie, talked a bit to Vanity Fair about the process of auditioning for The Hunger Games. “I remember being extra nervous at the audition. I thought I was never going to get it, so I just kind of went all out—just to be able to say that I did—and somehow I got it!” she told the magazine.
She also spoke about how being from Texas made her a strong, independent girl. Surely that had to come in handy for her next role, since Leven also has a project just about to hit cinemas: the second Percy Jackson movie, Sea of Monsters. If you’re part of the PJO fandom (like me!), you’ll surely be excited to see her as Clarisse La Rue in the film. You can check out a sneak peek of one of her scenes below!
Alexander Ludwig, who played Career tribute Cato in the first Hunger Games movie, is a model as well as an actor, and he was recently featured in a photoshoot for clothing retailer Abercrombie & Fitch. Here’s one of the pictures for your viewing pleasure, but you can see more over at Starcrush.com.
Wes Bentley, also known as the fabulously-bearded Seneca Crane, has joined the cast of Interstellar, set to debut in November 2014 and directed by Dark Knight trilogy and Inception helmsman Christopher Nolan. A star-studded cast is already confirmed for the film, including Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway and Jessica Chastain. Not much is known yet about Bentley’s role in the movie, although The Hollywood Reporter says it is a “meaty supporting role” and the film “involves time travel and alternate dimensions and sees a group of explorers travel through a wormhole.” Looks like Wes is sticking to the world of sci-fi! Good for him.
And last but not least, Liam Hemsworth‘s movie, Paranoia, which you’ve surely heard mentioned on this site before, is opening in theaters in the US on Friday, August 16th. A corporate espionage thriller, it stars big names such as Harrison Ford, Gary Oldman and Amber Heard. In the clip below you can take a look at what the movie’s about from Liam and the cast themselves. Will you watch Paranoia when it opens?
