Well, when once we toiled over whom would play the heroes of “The Hunger Games,” we’ve now progressed to who fills out the rest of the tributes competing in the winner-takes-all games.
According to Lionsgate Films, Leven Rambin has been cast as District 1 tribute, Glimmer, and Jack Quaid has been cast as her District teammate, Marvel.
Rambin, 20, has appeared in several TV shows, including “One Tree Hill” and “Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles.”
Aside from being the son of seasoned actors, Dennis Quaid and Meg Ryan, this will be 19-year-old Jack Quaid’s first big Hollywood role, though “The Hunger Games” is one hell of a coming out party.
Fans who are familiar with the books know Glimmer and Marvel as two of the “career tributes” who come from the more well to do districts. They train their entire lives for the games and volunteer to take part instead of being chosen in the lottery. Glimmer and Marvel team up with the other “careers” in hunting down Katniss (played by Jennifer Lawrence), Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) and their allies.
The two actors join Amandla Stenberg and Dayo Okeniyi who play District 11 tributes Rue and Thresh.
