Welcome to The Hunger Games, Ethan Jamieson and Tara Macken.
Keeping in line with its tribute casting choices thus far, Lionsgate has brought two more relative unknowns to the big screen adaptation of Suzanne Collins’ dystopian novels. The studio announced today via its official Hunger Games Facebook page that Jamieson and Macken will play the unnamed tributes of District 4, one of the more affluent areas of Panem known primarily for its fishing industry.
Jamieson will make his transition to the big screen from television (he enjoyed a bit role on an episode of One Tree Hill). Macken, meanwhile, whose previous work includes both acting and stunts (something that should definitely come in handy in the arena), could get a fair amount of screen time, as her Hunger Games character forms an alliance with the careers, the District 3 boy (Ian Nelson), and of course, Peeta (Josh Hutcherson.) Jamieson and Macken join a cast that includes Jennifer Lawrence, Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Paula Malcolmson, Willow Shields, and Elizabeth Banks, who confirmed just today that she will play Effie Trinket in the film.
