Hunger Games Cast Update!

Two new roles have now been cast - Thresh & Rue!

As we know Katniss will be played by Jennifer Lawrence, Peeta will be played by Josh Hutcherson and Gale will be played by Liam Hemsworth, but now we have two new kids on the blog.

Playing the District 11 pair are:

Amandla Stenberg as Rue
Dayo Okeniyias Thresh

They are both new to the acting game but I think they look great, can't wait to see them in action, especially Amandla, Rue is my favourite!

So, what do you think, good choices or not?

I'm super excited, can't wait to see who will fill out the other roles.

This sounds good so far! I'm still a little hesitant about Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth but I'm hoping!! :D :D

She looks exactly as I pictured! I haven't read the books in so long now, I can't even remember Thresh. I think it's time for a reread!

I'm actually happy with all of the cast, and I think I'm in the minority there. I just think that we can't judge until the movie is out.

Anyway, thanks for the update! :D

Yes, good characters, that is, if they couldn't sign you up, Becky. I think you'd be the perfect fit.

PS Stop over at my blog, and say hi.

I'm also hesitant about the choices for Peeta and Gale.

I heard they are considering Elizabeth Banks for Effie.

Elizabeth Banks has been confirmed as Effie!!! Not a bad choice methinks. :D

I'm holding out on the boys, they could be good if given the right make-up and direction.

Hehe, I would love to be in it, but the chance of that is like one in a billion.

Thanks for all the comments, will keep you posted.
