A Trio of Hunger Games: Catching Fire Casting Announcements

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (2013) Movie Title Banner

As they did with the first “Hunger Games” movie leading up to that film’s release, Lionsgate continues to keep fans of the series up to date on everything “Hunger Games”, including every little bit of casting. The last week has the studio adding three more names to the cast. I’ll leave it up to you to judge if they’re important enough to care about. Of the three, I only recall the character Mags from the second book. The other two don’t really register too much.

Lynn CohenLynn Cohen has been cast in the role of Mags.

A former mentor to Finnick Odair, Mags is an eighty year old Hunger Games victor from District 4.

Known to New York theater audiences for decades of memorable roles, Cohen has also appeared in critically acclaimed films such as Steven Spielberg’s Munich and Charlie Kaufman’s Synecdoche, NY, as well as commercial fare such as Sex and The City and its sequel. She can next be seen in They Came Together, with Paul Rudd and Amy Poehler.

Meta GoldingMeta Golding has been cast in the role of Enobaria.

A former career tribute from District 2, Enobaria is known for the particularly brutal, disturbing way in which she came to win The Hunger Games.

The daughter of an American United Nations food relief worker and a Haitian beauty queen, META GOLDING was raised in the United States, India, Haiti, France and Italy. After an injury sidelined her career as an Italian National Figure Skater, she brought her love of performance from the ice to the stage. Her ability to speak 3 languages and various other dialects made this transition come naturally. Meta started acting in Italian theatre before heading back to the United States to attend Cornell University, where she obtained degrees in Theatre Arts and International Relations. She was cast in ABC’s daytime drama “Loving” and the features “Louis and Frank,” “Kiss The Girls,” and “Surrogates.” Meta will next be seen in the independent film “The Chicago 8”. Her television credits include series regular on the ABC series “Daybreak,” recurring roles on “CSI” and “Criminal Minds,” as well as major guest starring roles on “House” and “Cold Case.”

Bruno GunnBruno Gunn has been cast in the role of Brutus.

Brutus is a former Career victor from District 2.

his first taste of Hollywood came when Woody Allen cast him in “Celebrity”. Supporting roles in “Mickey Blue Eyes” and “28 Days” quickly followed. Bruno has co-starred in a variety of critically acclaimed indies including; “Oxygen,” “Bad Penny”, “Herbie Fully Loaded”, “Battlefield America” and the recently released comedy, “Bad Teacher”. Gunn is frequently seen guest starring on the small screen as well. TV credits include: “The Office”, “Curb Your Enthusiasm”, “NCIS: Los Angeles”, “Sons Of Anarchy”, “CSI”, “Navy NCIS”, “Prison Break”, and HBO’s “Oz”.

Expect more casting to come. You can keep track of it all at the film’s official Facebook page.
