Omy god, I totally forgot Foxface was from District 5! She was one of my favourite characters, but nobody ever understood me. I especially admired her because she is the only one that didn't kill a single tribute in the Games. Plus she was so clever and mysterious. Ok, my district 5 pride just went waaaaay up!
P.S. Really enjoying the way they announce the cast, it's kinda like the games itself, district by district.
OooH thanks for the thoughts! It’s been getting very quiet over here with the exception of the District requests. I totally agree with you, foxface was a cool character. She could have won it all if it weren’t for the nightlock. I think she definitely had the best strategy in the games.
I’m going out of town on Saturday and coming back May 8th. Since this blog is my top priority of my internet life, if I ever have Internet I will most definitely be checking messages and stuff when I can.
I don’t know if I’ll be online on May 6th to see whatever the Gamemakers have in store for us, but check TheCapitolisWatching.
I’ll still be regularly updating until I leave on Saturday…
More Hunger Games roles? Vulture is reporting that Woody Harrelson, Stanley Tucci, and Lenny Kravitz have been offered roles in the Hunger Games movie, although it is still unclear what Stanley Tucci and Lenny Kravitz roles would entail:
The paranoia and secrecy surrounding
The Hunger Games at Lionsgate Films have reached a level befitting the totalitarian state of Panem: We’re told that not only are Hollywood agents being forced to sign nondisclosure agreements in order to receive offers for clients, but that even their assistants are being forced to sign NDAs, too. Nonetheless, Vulture has been able to glean that a passel of offers have gone out to talent, most notably to Woody Harrelson, Stanley Tucci and Lenny Kravitz. We’re told that Harrelson’s offer is to play the role of the Head Gamemaker, Seneca Crane, of the 74th Hunger Games.
Also said to be receiving Hunger Games offers: Stanley Tucci and Lenny Kravitz, though exactly which roles they’ve been offered is, for now, still unclear. One can imagine that after starring as the aesthetically obsessed art director Nigel in The Devil Wears Prada, Tucci would make for an excellent Cinna; then again, he’s so imperious, Tucci could be a great President Snow, too. And as to Kravitz’s involvement, we’re at a loss, but we’ll keep you posted.
What do you think? We would never think of Lenny Kravitz in the same line as the Hunger Games but apparently it can happen!
Is the hunger games movie really going to be named 'Artemis'?
This is what I said in the thing I reblogged a little bit ago:
It will most certainly NOT be called Artemis. This is the code word for the production. This is so when people drive around town they don’t see ‘Hunger Games’ on a sign. If a fan saw that they would totally go find where it was filmed. I know I would. However, the production doesn’t want any kind of interferences with the public so they give these huge films a code name. That is why when it comes to things like casting calls, they will refer to it as ‘Artemis’. The movie will still be called Hunger Games.
Fun fact: The Amazing Spiderman’s code name is ‘Fiona’s Tale’.
Artemis Casting just updated their Facebook page with more information on upcoming casting calls. It appears they are looking for very specific types of characters this time around.
More Casting Calls to be announced for next week. Seeking the following -Males-Farmers, Coal Miners, Construction Workers, Factory Workers, Every day Hard Working Guy Types 18 -75 years. Women of slender to average build. A Male with a handle bar mustache. Several Males 6’2 that wear a 42 Jacket. More details coming soon.
If you fit any of these criteria, stay tuned and we’ll update you as soon as more information is available. You can also keep checking the Artemis Movie Casting Facebook page for updates.
You can check out all the information from previous casting calls here.
I mean, RDJ is obviously my top choice… but I have faith John will do fine!
rdj is too shmexy to be haymitch. haymitch has to be a haggard drunk. once beautiful, now pathetic. this is why i like john! you are not alone.
I actually thought it was a pleasant surprise to find out he might play him. Haymitch isn’t supposed to be hot stuff or anything. He’s middle aged and paunchy. Also, John C. Reilly has a nice combination of comedic timing and serious acting which I think could bring a lot of color to the way he plays the character. I think he could be the best option now.
So I was curious, is there any way we know for sure they're already casting Finnick and Joanna? Because since neither of them have a role until the second movie, shouldn't they wait until then?
No I’m pretty sure they won’t cast those part until the second movie comes around. However, now is the perfect time for those actors who are interested in playing those parts to start preparing. You can never start character work too early.
Kalia has been in a few films, but mainly doing stunt work, which should come in very handy in the Hunger Games film. She has done stunt work in Red Dawn and Santa Clause 3 and had an uncredited role in Where the Wild Things Are. She has also done commercial work and modeling.http://www.imdb.me/kalia Congratulations to District 3, looks like you are well represented in the Hunger Games!
I'm in District 11 and my name isn't on the list yet...
yea, usually I’ll say that your name is on the list. That means I am adding you to the html code of the page in a separate offsite document. I’m continually adding people to the list, but I only update the site in chunks. If you’ve noticed in some of the questions I’ve answered in the past hour I mentioned people’s names were added, but the list wouldn’t be updated for a little bit. But strange enough, I just finished this chunk so I’ll be updating the site right now.
May I join your allies list? I'll include you in mine if you accept my request. :]
BOY WITH THE SNARES!! I remember you, you were around when I first made this blog. I can’t believe I didn’t put you in the allies page! It should be updated in a little it. I would be honored if you put me on yours!
GALE FANS: If you aren’t following this person, you should:
Hello. I love your blog!! I am listed heartwilight on your 'districts' page. I have a tumblr for HG. http://thereaping.tumblr.com/ Can you 'link' that to my name instead of my twilight tumblr. Thank You!!! Can you also list it under your allies page?
Hey thanks! I’ve linked it to your HG blog. Currently you are still listed as heartwilight, would you like me to list you as thereaping? Up to you. Also I put you in the allies page (it’s not updated yet though).
Also, if you request to have something changed, no need to tell me your district name! I can just put your user name and search the document for it, so no worries!
“The world begins to bend in alarming ways. A butterfly balloons to the size of a house then shatters into a million stars. Trees transform to blood and splash down over my boots. Ants begin to crawl out of the blisters on my hands and I can’t shake them free. They’re climbing up my arms, my neck. Someone’s screaming, a long high pitched scream that never breaks for breath. I have a vague idea it might be me. I trip and fall into a small pit lined with tiny orange bubbles that hum like the tracker jacker nest. Tucking my knees up to my chin, I wait for death.
Sick and disoriented, I’m able to form only one thought:
Peeta Mellark just saved my life.
Then the ants bore into my eyes and I black out.”— The Hunger Games, Suzanne Collins
Listening to the fireside chat now, and I’ll be shouting out on Twitter at 10:30 EST!!!
Beginning at 10:30PM EST, we begin sharing our love for our districts. This means you begin Tweeting and using AIM to let the Fireside Chat hosts exactly where you come from. Remember to always include #panemoctober. You will stop sending messages and tweets at 11PM EST. Only for thirty minutes should you do this. We do not want to disrupt communication… but we’d like to make a statement against the Capitol, who will be listening.
You can reach the Fireside chat by using either of the following:
AOL Instant Messenger (AIM): HGFiresideChat Twitter: Using the hashtag #HGFiresideChat
Here’s the plan: When the Fireside Chat starts, we all take 30 minutes to catch up and be online. Beginning at 10:30PM EST, we begin sharing our love for our districts. This means you begin Tweeting and using AIM to let the Fireside Chat hosts exactly where you come from. Remember to always include #panemoctober. You will stop sending messages and tweets at 11PM EST. Only for thirty minutes should you do this.

Naya Rivera (who plays Santana Lopez in Glee) stated on her twitter that she wants to play Johanna in the Hunger Games movie. Personally I wasn't sure at first, because her features are the opposite of what I'd imagined Johanna looks like, but than I thought she could pull off her personality and attitude.
Anyone else got any thoughts on this?
I think that’d be cool! Someone mentioned her for foxface a while ago which I couldn’t really see, but I think Johanna would be good possibility!!
Look what happened down at TheCapitolisWatching...
Q: You have a way with words.
Now, to address your outspoken anger:
Do keep in mind, this year’s Games are already planned, to the finest detail. Months of meticulous planning and timed releases are pinpointed to the last second.
The only thing we cannot plan is how you will react, and how your organization will help Panem overall. Do know: It is not our job to make things easy for you. It is not our job to pave the way. Your complaints and voices mean nothing to us in the Capitol.
If you work together, you may stand a chance. But then again - working together is against Capitol policy. Districts are to be broken apart, and we will see to it that we succeed.
Let this be a message to those “following along”: Let the Games Begin.
You hear that my dear followers? The sound of a challenge? Well, my dear Gamemakers, let it be known that we will stand together, we will unite, and we will play our lovely part in these games.
For so long the people of Panem have lost your games. Yes, we have had one victor but one victor is not enough anymore.
Watch out, Capitol, because your people are angry. We are tired but more importantly we are hungry. Our freedom will be the food in our stomachs and your defeat will be our beds we lie in.
People of Panem, I call to you to become stronger in our alliance. Let the Capitol know how united out front is. Write, show your pride in photos and art, let your voices be heard, tag your posts panemoctober, show your unity. NEVER BREAK THE UNITY THAT WE HAVE ESTABLISHED WITH EACH OTHER.
Our families have been torn apart but here is where we regain ourselves. We are each others family now.
UNITED WE STAND, DIVIDED WE FALL.
BRING IT, GAMEMAKERS. This is exactly why we have lists of everyone in their districts. To promote unity and communication between everyone in the districts. We are banding together and you can’t stop us.
Haha, amen to that. And, as you can tell by the ranting post that I just made, it is really annoying how they treat us. It's like, be serious if youre going to be serious. But if you are going to treat it as a game, then expect us to go right ahead and treat it like a game too.
Exactly. I treat anything they say as a game. But really, I have no interest in finding out who they really are through internet scouring, I just want to see how it all unfolds. I hope that they will leave some clues soon.
I got the same thing but since they asked to keep it private I didn't want to share it. I think they found out that I know who they are. Opps. But, like most people, are am mature enough to keep my mouth shut. Ugh, sometimes they frustrate me.
Well, my policy is to share as much information as possible with the other members of Panem as possible. Plus, they kinda threatened me at the end with the whole “we don’t need to remind you the power we possess”. Bring it on, bitches.
