Hunger Games Cast News – September 19
Past and present Hunger Games cast members have certainly been keeping busy! First up is the man with the beard, Wes Bentley, who has joined the cast of HBO’s new pilot ‘Open’ which The Hollywood Reporter describes as a “multicharacter exploration of the complex, ever evolving landscape of sexuality, monogamy and intimacy in relationships.”
In other casting news Alan Ritchson has joined the cast of ‘The Wedding Ringer’, which centers on “a charismatic guy who provides best man services for socially challenged guys who can’t get somebody to agree to stand by them on the day of their wedding.”
Woody Harrelson has also taken on quite a few projects lately, one of which is the upcoming HBO show ‘True Detective’. The show isn’t due for release until January 2014, but you can see Woody in action in this recently released trailer for the show:
“I am going to be sad, it’s going to feel like I’m watching a home movie without myself in it, but I’m really excited to see it. I’m sure the new cast is amazing. Being in The Hunger Games taught me a lot about being in the action medium and being in the combat mode and being very physical, so I was lucky to have that experience.
I have bumps and bruises everywhere, all the time. I don’t want to do those stunts but I do them. Sometimes I want to do them, sometimes I don’t. It’s made me tougher and stronger as I do it.”
