The Hunger Games Movie News - More Cast Announcements!

So, I'm a little behind on the latest cast announcements for The Hunger Games movie, but I'm still very pleased!

May I present...

Wes Bentley as Seneca Crane, the Head Gamemaker.

Elizabeth Banks as Effie Trinket, Katniss and Peeta's escort.

Paula Malcomson as Mrs Everdeen, Katniss & Prim's mother.

Willow Shields as Primrose Everdeen, Katniss's little sister.

Amandla Stenberg as Rue, and Dayo Okeniyi as Thresh, District 11 Tributes.

Leven Rambin as Glimmer, and Jack Quaid as Marvel, District 1 Tributes.

Tributes from the other Districts have also been announced, and you can see them all over at The Hunger Games Movie Facebook Page. Just click on Who Are the Tributes? on the left, under their profile picture.

I'm very happy with all of these choices, and am getting more and more excited as the cast gets officially announced! I'm a fan of Wes Bentley and Elizabeth Banks and think they'll do great. I think the girls playing Rue and Willow are very cute, and I'm a little happy to see Dennis Quaid's son! I do love his father! Not that that has anything to do with anything, I'm just saying...

So how are you feeling about the cast announcements? I'm really looking forward to hearing about their pick for Haymitch and Snow! Won't be long now!

Also, just on an aside, who knew that Jennifer Lawrence (Katniss) is playing young Mystique in X-Men First Class? I saw her in the preview last week and went "Oh! Oh! Oh!" That's pretty cool!!


  1. I didn't know Dennis Quaid had a son, much less one who was an actor!

    I love Elizabeth Banks too. Looks like it's a really good cast!

  2. Me neither! Guess we'll see how he goes! :-D

    Banks is gonna be great as Effie, I think it's kind of perfect for her. Great cast so far, gonna have high expectations of the movie!
