The latest castings for “The Hunger Games” basically promises its studio, Lionsgate, is ensuring that the film’s action kicks butt.
Though the characters go unnamed in the book, Hollywood stunt doubles Kara Petersen and Ashton Moio will play the District 6 tributes.
Petersen, who specializes in gymnastics, has played the stunt double in “Bring It On: In It to Win it,” “Tsunami Beach Club,” and the upcoming summer film, “Super 8.”
Moio, a black belt in tae kwon do, has been seen in several films including “Charlie Wilson’s War,” “Hop,” “Red Riding Hood,” and “The Ring Two.”
In the young adult novel, not much is known about District 6. It’s believed their primary industry is medicine. Both its tributes die at the Cornucopia where the games begin, but we expect the two actors to put up a good fight!
