Isabelle Fuhrman and Alexander Ludwig Round Out the Tributes in THE HUNGER GAMES Cast

The basic premise behind The Hunger Games is a fight to the death between 24 kids (ages 12-18) — two “tributes” selected from each of the 12 districts of Panem, the dictatorship of the future.  Lionsgate has spent the last month steadily rolling out the young cast that will play the kids, saving two of the most important tributes for today’s final announcement.  You can gauge their relative importance by their names — known not as “Tribute Boy” and “Tribute Girl,” but rather as Cato and Clove of District 2.  Alexander Ludwig (Race to Witch Mountain) will play Cato, Isabelle Fuhrman (Orphan) will play Clove.  I can’t speak for Ludwig’s talent, but the Fuhrman casting is excellent.  She wowed us all in Orphan in 2009, but  screen credits since have been minimal (The Cleveland Show?).  Fuhrman is perfect for Clove, who is great with a knife and, um… not very nice.

Virtually all of the principal roles are filled: Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss, Josh Hutcherson as Peeta, Woody Harrelson as Haymitch, Liam Hemsworth as Gale, Wes Bentley as Seneca Crane, Elizabeth Banks as Effie Trinket, Stanley Tucci as Caesar Flickerman, Willow Shields as Primrose, and Paula Malcomson as Mrs. Everdeen.  Find a Cinna (perhaps Lenny Kravitz?) and a President Snow, and you’re pretty much set.  Director Gary Ross (Seabiscuit) ought to begin production soon to make the planned March 23, 2012 release date.  Hit the jump for the official synopsis the full tribute casting rundown.

Every year in the ruins of what was once North America, the nation of Panem forces each of its twelve districts to send a teenage boy and girl to compete in the Hunger Games.  Part twisted entertainment, part government intimidation tactic, the Hunger Games are a nationally televised event in which “Tributes” must fight with one another until one survivor remains.

Pitted against highly-trained Tributes who have prepared for these Games their entire lives, Katniss is forced to rely upon her sharp instincts as well as the mentorship of drunken former victor Haymitch Abernathy.  If she’s ever to return home to District 12, Katniss must make impossible choices in the arena that weigh survival against humanity and life against love.

    Don’t forget Cinna!

    Alexander Ludwig was up for Peeta .. sadly he lost to One Note actor “Josh Hutcherson but still he got to play cool Cato . Isabelle Fuhrman looks terrific in Orphan’s promos, havn’t seen the movie yet but who ever has seen it admires her i think their fight will be most fun to Watch!

  • O.R.

    Ludwig LOOKS more the part of Peeta than Hutcherson, but he arguably has more talent. I can’t picture Ludwig as a murdering monster anyway. Also, that boy from 9 looks so freakin’ happy, it’s sad to think he’ll get killed on screen, and more so if they keep it like it is in the book (which I doubt).

  • Wladi

    This novel is suspiciously similar to the japanese novel and film Battle Royal:

  • Kaylie

    I don’t believe either boy cast to play Gale and Peeta fit what so ever. They look like they’re 14,and not to mention,Gale has black hair,not Peeta,so why cast Peeta with black hair and Gale with blonde? At least stick to the book somewhat.

    • Leni

      guys stop complaining did u even see the tralier……. gale dyes his hair dark brown…. Peeta dyes his hair blonde and katniss dyes her hair brown everyone stop complainig because this movie will be great

  • Imani

    Ironic how Cato and Clove look more like Peeta and Katniss than the actual Peeta and Katniss do. Can’t wait for the movie!!!

  • labellota

  • A person

    Josh Hutcherson’s jaw seems too boxy for the role of Peeta. Hes a fine actor, but just doesn’t look like Peeta. The rest of the cast is fine.

  • A person who loves Hunger Games

    They make them look a lot more like thier characters in the movie… they did a good job casting.

    • Alex

      Thank you! The cast is just fine. I can’t believe everyone’s getting so worked up over it.

    The cast is not accurate. First of all Katniss has black hair not blonde and Rue looks way too young to be twelve.

    The hunger games is my favorite thing in the world I read the books 21 times:)

  • Sophia

    I think Cato and clove should have been Katniss and Peeta…that’s kinda ironic, becuase they could have cast those actors but chose not to…
    I don’t really care, the movie was amazing and the books are the best thing ever to happen on this earth :)

  • brooklyn

    certainly like your web site however you have to take a look at the spelling on several of your posts. Many of them are rife with spelling problems and I find it very troublesome to inform the reality nevertheless I’ll certainly come back again.

  • Nina

    I loved the book, can’t wait to see the film. & yes I totally agree with the comments above, Peeta should be played by the guy playing Cato. But Gale is perfect, just how I imagined him :) P>S I just bought the other two. Great Books

  • Bella

    BEST BOOK AND MOVIE EVER ALIVE!!!!!

    • Anonymous

      true

  • Jen

    The hunger games were amazing… the first book was the best. I read catching fire in one week and i thought that was the worst one of them all. I think the 3rd book was okay, i am almost done with this book. I am a Gale Fan! I believe Liam should have played Peeta and Josh as Gale!

  • Ivy

    This is the best series I have ever read!! Cant wait till Catching Fire comes out in theaters, hopefully the movie is as half as good as the book :) PEETA IS MY FAVORITE!!!

    • Just some Hunger Games Freak
