Jennifer Lawrence may be nabbing a killer paycheck for the sequel to The Hunger Games, but she's going to work for every penny of it, because Catching Fire just locked down one heck of a sexy villain.
Meta Golding has been cast as Enobaria, a District 2 career tribute whom Lawrence's Katniss encounters when [SPOILER ALERT] she's forced back into the arena for the 75th annual Hunger Games. And Enobaria is ready to sink her teeth into the competition...literally.
Those who have read the book surely remember the wicked Enobaria as [EVEN MORE SPOILERS] the tribute who won her Games by ripping out another tribute's throat with her teeth. She later had her teeth made sharp and pointy, so expect to see one grisly grill on the big screen.
And maybe it's because we were so focused on those jaws straight out of, well, Jaws, but we didn't quite expect Enobaria to be so drop-dead gorgeous! But as long as Ms. Golding brings Enobaria's scare-you-straight ferocity to the role, then we're on board!
Golding is best known for her work on the small screen, with recurring roles on shows such as Criminal Minds, CSI and Day Break, but also had a smaller part in Bruce Willis' 2009 sci-fi flick Surrogates.
Meta joins Philip Seymour Hoffman (as Plutarch Heavensbee), Jena Malone (as Johanna Mason), Amanda Plummer (as Wiress) and Lynn Cohen (as Mags) in the hotly anticipated sequel, set to hit theaters Nov. 22, 2013.
Now if only Lionsgate would tell us who's playing the likes of Brutus and Beetee already, ya know, so we can get a little closer to (finally!) finding out who will take on our beloved Finnick!
