The Hunger Games Casting Item: #48 of 182.

Alan Ritchson, star of Spike TV’s Blue Mountain State, has been cast in the role of Gloss in the upcoming The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. Gloss is a member of the pack of career tributes with whom Katniss ends up doing battle. We expect him to snarl and posture menacingly on screen.

Ritchson joins recently cast former victors Bruno Gunn as Brutus and Meta Golding as Enobaria.
