Jennifer Lawrence talks “Hunger Games” and Josh!

Jennifer Lawrence has debuted her new dark hair, dyed for her role as Katniss Everdeen, in her recent press tour for her movie “X-Men: First Class”; she has also started speaking out about her preparations for the role and her growing relationship with co-stars Josh Hutcherson (Peeta) and Liam Hemsworth (Gale).

“Josh and I are both crazy and so it’s good when we have other people that are not crazy to calm us down a little bit, but when Josh and I are together, we’re so bad for each other. Josh and I were in his room watching some show about crocodiles, and then we went screaming about Avatar and how upsetting it was that we couldn’t live on Pandora, and we couldn’t be Avatars no matter how hard we tried and we were screaming at the top of our lungs, and before I realized it, Liam ran in and was like, “ARE YOU GUYS ALRIGHT?” and we’re both totally upset, covering our faces all “RUUAHHH AVATAR!!!” See more at the source.

“Hunger Games” Tributes thrown into boot camp

According to E!Online the “Hunger Game” actors have been thrown into a training boot camp to get themselves ready for the stunt-intensive film. According to an inside source the cast are getting along very well and film production is set to start sometime this summer.

Leven Rambin, who is playing District 1’s Tribute, Glimmer, has also spoken about her excitement at working on the project and with her actor buddy, Josh Hutcherson!

With just a month left before The Hunger Games begins shooting, an inside Hunger source tells us the entire cast is currently enrolled in physically demanding stunt training!

“The cast mates are all really happy with each other and get along great so far,” our source tells us, regarding the actors who have varying degrees of fame.

And while most of the tributes cast already have serious experience as stunt doubles, everyone is still required to attend training a few days a week, we’re told.

They have to learn archery, sword fighting, martial arts and the like,” the knowledgeable insider insists. Filming starts in June in North Carolina, do they don’t have too much longer to snap to!

“They want the actors to genuinely know what they are doing,” adds our source, who also says the film will have a “very cool and futuristic feel.”

When we ran into District 1 tribute Glimmer, played by Leven Rambin, at the IWC Schaffhausen presents Peter Lindbergh’s Portofino last week, the actress told us she had to stay mum on the film. But she did say, “I’m so excited to work with Josh Hutcherson, I’ve been friends with him for years.

Good thing the Tributes are all getting along so far, because our Hunger mole tells us they will most likely be filming all summer long. More at the source.

More “Hunger Games” casting – Effie and Districts 3 and 4 Tributes

The Hunger Games has picked up five new actors in light of rumours of filming starting very soon. Joining Josh, Jennifer and Liam in the Arena will be: Ian Nelson and Kalia Prescott from District 3 and Ethan Jamieson and Tara Macken from District 4; the role of Effie Trinket, insufferably perky pink-haired escort, has gone to Elizabeth Banks. As well as the previous confirmed castings, the role of Haymitch has reportedly been offered to John C. Reilly (he and Josh previously acted alongside each other in The Vampire’s Assistant).

First, the oldish (but now newish!) news regarding Elizabeth Banks. She’s officially in as District 12 escort Effie Trinket! After a Twitter tease earlier in the day, in which she quoted one of Effie’s lines from Suzanne Collins’ novel, Lionsgate and Elizabeth (via Twitter, natch) confirmed the news. “Yes! And I can now confirm I’m EFFIE TRINKET in @TheHungerGames. So excited!,” she wrote.

In other Panem news, fishing-focused District 4 has found its (unnamed) tributes: Meet Ethan Jamieson and Tara Macken. Ethan’s credits thus far include an appearance on “One Tree Hill” as Kid #2 (surely you remember him?) and the TV movie “The Rusty Bucket Kids: Lincoln, Journey to 16.” Tara’s resume is quite a bit more robust and resembles that of co-star Kalie Prescott—they’re both stunt women. Tara’s also made appearances as an actress on “Sons of Anarchy,” “Victorious” and “Hawaii Five-0.” More at the source.

They may go unnamed in Suzanne Collins’ dystopian thriller, but now you can put faces (and names!) to the actors portraying District 3’s tributes: Meet Ian Nelson and Kalia Prescott! The duo will represent Panem’s electronics-producing region (a background that comes in handy for the male tribute during the Games). As you can guess, since neither tribute is named, these two don’t play a huge part in the frenzied fight, but as I’ve alluded, you’ll want to keep your eye on Ian’s character, for sure.

Who plays a paunchy, pathetic drunk better than John C. Reilly? Actually, that’s a bit of a trick, because the answer, of course, is no one. And for that reason, we’re told it will be the Oscar-nominated Reilly who’ll be soon be getting the offer to play Haymitch Abernathy in the forthcoming adaptation of Suzanne Collins’s The Hunger Games at Lionsgate Films.

“Hunger Games” Updates: Tributes from Districts 1 and 11 Added

Two more sets of Tributes have been released through Lionsgate and EW.! Along with Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson as Katniss and Peeta, The Hunger Games can now add Rue and Thresh from District 11 and Marvel and Glimmer from District 1 into the tournament. Thresh and Rue will be played by newcomers Dayo Okeniyi and Amandla Stenberg; Marvel and Glimmer will be played by Jack Quaid and Leven Rambin.

The official Hunger Games Facebook Page is updating these cast announcements in a movement eerily similar to the presentation of Tributes in the Capitol.

Now, Lionsgate has set its sights on District 11: EW has confirmed exclusively that the studio has cast Hollywood newcomers Dayo Okeniyi and Amandla Stenberg as Thresh and Rue in the adaptation of the Suzanne Collins trilogy, directed by Gary Ross. Okeniyi, playing the intimidatingly strong tribute, has appeared in a short called Eyes to See and an upcoming horror film, Slew Hampshire. Stenberg, who is on board as Katniss’ arena ally Rue, has roles in the September’s Colombiana and the telefilm Taste of Romance. More at the source.

Jack Quaid, son of Meg Ryan and Dennis Quaid, and Leven Rambin (Grey’s Anatomy, All My Children) have been cast as two of the Career Tributes in the movie adaptation of The Hunger Games. Making his acting debut, Quaid will play Marvel, the brutal male tribute from District 1. Ramblin will play his female counterpart Glimmer, the emerald-eyed vixen who nabs the bow and arrow set at the Cornucopia. More at the source.
