Rounding out the motley crew of 24 kids sent to fight to the death in the sadist government-run games, the movie versions of Cato and Clove have been found in—surprise, surprise—two young but experienced actors:
Isabelle Fuhrman and Alexander Ludwig.
What these two teens lack in stunt experience (unlike the majority of the tributes previously cast,) they make up for in acting background.
The fourteen-year-old actress also played Gretchen Dennis opposite Jennifer Love Hewitt on Ghost Whisperer, which garnered her a Young Artist Award nomination and will appear as a lead in the upcoming Salvation Boulevard alongside Pierce Brosnan, Jennifer Connelly, Marisa Tomei and Ed Harris.
Ludwig, 19, who will be playing District 2's Cato, is currently enrolled as a theater major at the University of Southern California. But you may recognize this Canadian cutie as Seth from 2009's Race to Witch Mountain—or Will from The Seeker: The Dark is Rising.
In the Suzanne Collins novel, Ludwig and Fuhrman's characters are a part of a group known as the Careers, ambitious and well trained teen killers who frequently volunteer to participate in the Hunger Games.
Cato and Clove are well-fed kids from a district that specializes in the profitable production of nuclear weapons after the war and their characters play, let's say, pivotal roles during the 74th Hunger Games.
What a fun summer vacation for all these youngins to film together in North Carolina!
Now the real question is, which tribute teams will be swapping mates and making real-life love connections?
You know it's bound to happen. Hello, robsten?
