Lionsgate has added two more cast members to The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. Sons of Anarchy actor Patrick St. Esprit, has been cast as District 12 Peacekeeper Romulus Thread, and Meta Golding has been cast as former District 2 victor Enobaria.
The film is being directed by Francis Lawrence and they will be joing newcomers Philip Seymour Hoffman (Plutarch Heavensbee), Amanda Plummer (Wiress), Jena Malone (Johanna), Sam Claflin (Finnick), Tony Shaloub (Beetee), and Lynn Cohen (Mags). Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, and Lenny Kravitz will all reprise their roles.
Here's some infomation on Romulus Thread:
Harsh and unforgiving, Thread appears in Catching Fire, ready to enforce the law, no matter what. Being fiercely loyal to the Capitol, he is willing to do whatever it takes, going to such extremes that he injured Katniss, the victor of District 12 who had an upcoming modeling session.
Here's some information on Enobaria:
Enobaria was a tribute native to District 2, the most loyal district to the Capitol. When Enobaria had become old enough to participate in the Hunger Games, she volunteered to perform in the 62nd Hunger Games, meaning she was 17 when she won her games. During these Games, Enobaria ripped open another tribute's throat with her teeth. Eventually she won her Games and would be a mentoralongside her fellow victors that came before her, Brutus and Lyme, for the tributes who generally volunteered from District 2. It is likely that she mentored Cato and Clove. After winning the Games, she had her teeth cosmetically altered to end in sharp points, like fangs, and tipped with gold so they would be a formidable weapon as well as virtually indestructible.
Here's the Synopsis:
THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE begins as Katniss Everdeen has returned home safe after winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games along with fellow tribute Peeta Mellark. Winning means that they must turn around and leave their family and close friends, embarking on a “Victor’s Tour” of the districts. Along the way Katniss senses that a rebellion is simmering, but the Capitol is still very much in control as President Snow prepares the 75th Annual Hunger Games (The Quarter Quell) – a competition that could change Panem forever.
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire will open November 22, 2013. Do you think they've done a good job with casting the characters in the Hunger Games sequel?
