I was listening to the most recent Hunger Games chat from Hypable the other day and one of them mentioned Cloris Leachman for Mags as their fan cast. I think she would be great as her.
Yes, the Tony Shahloub thing is just a rumour as of now. Lionsgate has not confirmed it.

Mags is officially cast. Lynn Cohen will be playing the role. It was just announced today.

Just saw the news. Good choice. Each time I think they can't cast a better choice for a role, they do. Each one I'm like "YES!"

I feel the same way. They are doing a brilliant job casting this film.

She's going to look great. Can't say I'm familiar with her acting, but looks-wise she's going to look fierce!

Re: Catching Fire (2013)

Hello, I'm new here, and this thread is so long I can't take the time to go through it all. Sorry if the answer's already there, but what I'd like to know is, have they decided yet who will play Finnick Odair? He's a fascinating character and I hope whichever actor they choose does him justice, both in looks, charm and acting.

He has not been officially announced yet, though rumour has it Sam Claflin got the role.

Re: Catching Fire (2013)

I've really not been keeping track of the casting for this, mainly because I can't remember who half the characters are, but Alan Ritchson has been cast as Gloss http://www.comingsoon.net/news/movienews.php?id=93458

I'm glad to hear that Finnick hasn't been announced yet, I thought I'd missed it.

Re: Catching Fire (2013)

So, what do you guys think will be different in the movie from the book? We already know Peeta won't have an artificial leg, but I wonder if they'll work a limp in there since it does play a part in why they separate in the arena (unless they just make it out that he's too slow/noisy to go with Katniss?)

It sounds weird to say this, but I'm really looking forward to the part where Gale is whipped and the subsequent care he receives from Katniss' mom. The other scene I'm looking forward to (aside from the entire movie, really ) is the part where Katniss comes back from the woods to find the fence electrified.

Amazing that we have to wait a year for this to come out! I'm looking forward to the trailer next summer (I'm guessing at the MTV movie awards?)

Yes, it'll be interesting to see how they handle this.

I'm not looking forward to the whipping scene, but I am to the one when Katniss comes back from the woods, finds the fence electrified, hurts herself getting in and still manages to pull wool over the PeaceKeeper's eyes as to where she's been and what she's been up to. That scene will be SO enjoyable!

I don't know a thing about his acting, but he's attractive enough for me to pull off the looks. I gotta believe that the casting people think he can embody Finnick. I really can't wait for this movie to come out, and I cannot wait for a teaser trailer or set photos ore something!

Re: Catching Fire (2013)

After a period of no casting news, Lionsgate has announced Jeffrey Wright as Beetee!

Not super familiar with Jeffrey Wright, although I did see Casino Royale. I pictured someone skinnier, smaller--more frail looking? But I'm sure he'll be great.

I saw a blog post talking about the Catching Fire casting page on Facebook and how one of the to be announced castings appears to be a 'mystery' casting. As in, it doesn't list the character's name in the shadow photo. It never occurred to me that they might change the story a bit in order to introduce a character from Mockingjay (or perhaps someone who got cut from THG but will make an appearance in CF). The top guesses have been Coin, Madge and I forget who the third one was. Totally drawing a blank here. I'll come back and edit when I remember. LOL

Anyway, who do you think it might be, and what change to CF do you think they are going to make so that this character would be added/introduced?

Part of me thinks it is Madge, because of the part where Katniss finds out about the uprisings while at the Mayor's house. But I also think that scene can be done without the character of Madge.

Re: Catching Fire (2013)

I guess filming has begun on catching fire in Atlanta. I can't wait to see Jennifer back as Katniss. The set pics look great. It looks like they are already in their wetsuit type tribute uniforms. I am still not sold in Sam as Finnick, but hopefully he can pull it off.

I was wondering if those were the training uniforms, for when they are at the Capitol? You're right though, they do look like wet suit type material so it would make sense that it could be arena wear.

I am thinking that they are the training uniforms. They are filming those scenes right now, and the arena shots will be done in Hawaii.

I like the look of them though.
