Ah, we didn’t see these ones coming. Two actresses and one actor will soon take on their respective roles in “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire“. It has been said that Catching Fire, the sequel to The Hunger Games, is going to rock all y’all’s socks off with plans to make it even bigger and better than ever.
Or at least that’s what we’ve heard during its pre-production stages.
Best known for her role Magda in HBO’s “Sex and the City”, Lynn is one of the first few actresses to have cinched a confirmed role in Catching Fire. And no confirmation is as legit as one that comes from the lion’s mouth aka Lionsgate. The actress will play 80-year-old Mags, a victor tribute from District 4.
But she’ll do more than fight – Mags will also act as a mentor for the younger District 4 tribute, the super hot Finnick Odair.
He was shortlisted previously and last we checked (which was just a few seconds ago), Sam Claffin is close to locking down a role in Catching Fire too. Havnig played minor roles in other big-budget movies such as the recent “Snow White and the Huntsman” as “Prince Charming”, playing the sun-kissed hottie Finnick Odair is definitely going to boost his resume by miles!
That is, if this much is true. And if it is, then Sam would’ve beaten many other rising stars to it. Bragging rights please.
Say, wasn’t this American actress one of the dancer girls who packed a punch (and more) in 2011’s action fantasy film, “Sucker Punch”? Yes! And she’s returning to the silver screen to strike more blows. As Johanna Mason.
If you haven’t read the books, well, Johanna Mason is a female victor tribute from District 7 who is as sly as she is cunning, earning her the sneaky ability to murder easily. She is also Katniss Everdeen’s (played by Jennifer Lawrence) rival. Oh, she also has pretty good, sarky lines. Of course. She’s Johanna Mason, brainless.
“The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” is slated for a 22nd November 2013 release.
