Here is a look at the cast of the movie and the roles they will play.
Jennifer Lawrence (Katniss Everdeen)
When her 12-year-old sister Prim is picked to fight in the Hunger Games, Katniss Everdeen demands she be sent instead. The Hunger Games is a contest in the post apocalyptic world where the government chooses two children to fight to the death to prove their power in the world. Jennifer Lawrence earned an Oscar nomination for her role in Winter’s Bone.
Josh Hutcherson (Peeta Mellark)
Peeta is the baker’s generous-hearted son, who’s called up along with Katniss to represent District 12 in the Hunger Games. When the government learns that Peeta likes Katniss and helped her when she was starving, they allow the two to work together in The Hunger Games. Josh Hutcherson co-starred in the award winning movie The Kids Are All Right.
Liam Hemsworth (Gale Hawthorne)
Gale Hawthorne is Katniss’ touchstone in District 12 for The Hunger Games, her faithful friend and hunting partner. In the beginning, he asks Katniss to run away with him so they can escape the cruel whims of the Capitol. Liam Hemsworth is the brother of Thor actor Chris Hemsworth and recently starred with Miley Cyrus in The Last Song.
Donald Sutherland (President Snow)
Although Snow mostly lurks around the outskirts of the first volume of The Hunger Games, he is unquestionably the series’ main puppet master. The ruler of Panem is a quietly malevolent figure who is shrouded in secrecy. Donald Sutherland is a veteran actor who has starred in movies such as MASH and Invasion of the Body Snatchers.
Lenny Kravitz (Cinna)
Stylist Cinna is tasked with overhauling the supposedly lowly District 12 female Hunger Games tribute Katniss Everdeen. His first act of genius is her Girl on Fire dress. Katniss comes to consider him a true friend. Lenny Kravitz is a successful musician who also appeared in the acclaimed movie Precious.
Woody Harrelson (Haymitch Abernathy)
Haymitch is the only living resident of District 12 ever to win The Hunger Games and the mentor to Katniss and Peeta. He starts off as a burned-out drunk but begins to see Katniss and Peeta as his district’s best hope for winning the games. Harrelson recently started in Zombieland.
Toby Jones (Claudius Templesmith)
He’s the legendary, and legendarily pompous, announcer of The Hunger Games. Claudius is known for his disingenuous catchphrase — ”And may the odds be ever in your favor!” Toby Jones co-starred in Captain America as one of The Red Skulls evil henchmen.
Stanley Tucci (Caesar Flickerman)
Caesar Flickerman is the smooth-talking interviewer at the annual Hunger Games. It is Flickerman and his questions that introduces Katniss and the other tributes to the audience. Stanley Tucci recently starred as the scientist in Captain America who developed the Super Soldier serum.
