More Hunger Games Casting!!

Wow, there's just a sudden burst of casting for The Hunger Games over these past few days!! I'm pretty excited about all these new editions! 

First off,we have Elizabeth Banks as Effie Trinket. Some of her more well- known movies are The Next Three Days, Definitely Maybe, Spider- Man and Spider- Man 2, as well as the T.V series Scrubs. I personally like her acting and I think she can pull off Effie's bubbly personality pretty well.  

Next, there's, Leven Rambin as Glimmer. Leven's career has been mostly centered on T.V series like One Tree Hill and Grey's Anatomy, and as I've never seen her acting before, I'm not sure how well she'll do on the big screen. Glimmer isn't a major character, though, so I trust she can do it. Plus, in my opinion, she looks very much the part!


Jack Quaid, son of Meg Ryan and Dennis Quaid, was chosen to play Marvel. Now, this is Jack's first spot in the movie industry, which is no surprise given his actor parents. He doesn't really look like I expected Marvel to look, but hopefully he has inherited some of his parents skills! Because of his lack of movie acting, this picture is the only one I could find of him (with his dad).  

And last, but definitely not least, we have Willow Shields as Prim. She's been in very few movie productions, but director Gary Ross says she ''will make an amazing Prim''. Well, the director knows best I guess-- I was really rooting for Kiernan Shipka or Elle Fanning, who have a more delicate look about them and more acting experience. But I'm going to be optimistic! Prim is a very emotionally- challenging role to play, especially in the second two books, so I'm sure Willow Shields has lots of talent to take that on.


*There you have it-- the cast of The Hunger Games so far. I absolutely loved this series and I'm hoping hoping hoping that they'll do a good job on the movie. There's so many important scenes they could leave out ( if they leave out Rue and Katniss's scene I will cry)! But, who knows until we see the final product?

**Have a great day everyone and I'll keep you posted on upcoming casting news!
