Check This Out: Interactive Photo of 'The Hunger Games' Entire Cast
While the cast composing the many districts of The Hunger Games features some known talent like Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen, Josh Hutcherson as Peeta Mellark and Liam Hemsworth as Gale Hawthorne, there's also a whole slew of fresh faces bringing Suzanne Collins' best-selling young adult novel to life. With just a few months left until the film's March release next year, Vanity Fair (via ComingSoon) has posted a pretty cool interactive photo of some of the major contenders from several of the districts in The Hunger Games with info on their previous roles, thoughts on landing this big role, and more.
Here's the cast of The Hunger Games (click for the interactive features and a couple more photos):
Jennifer Lawrence stars as Katniss, a 16-year-old living in the post-apocalyptic country of Panem. Every year, one boy and one girl are chosen from each of Panem's 12 districts to fight each other to their death.
The Hunger Games is both written and directed by Oscar nominated filmmaker Gary Ross, director of Seabiscuit and Pleasantville previously, but also writer of Big, Mr. Baseball, Dave, Lassie, Pleasantville and Seabiscuit. It's adapted from Suzanne Collins' popular series of novels, first published in 2008. Lionsgate is bringing The Hunger Games to theaters everywhere starting March 23rd, 2012 next spring. Excited yet?

As a warning to those who haven't read the books, that Vanity Fair interactive photo is filled with spoilers.

Nothing like an apocalypse to get rid of all the ugly people, apparently.

Just in the younger members of this cast you have an oscar nom (Jennifer, Winters Bone) a star of an oscar nom film (Josh, Kids are Alright), a great signer/songwriter (Jacqueline, Peter Pan), an mlk speaker (Amandla)... The cast seem a little more rounded

Whatever. This marketing campaign is so annyoing at this point I hope they fail just so I don't have to hear about it anymore. Picture is generic at best.

it's a cast photo, what do you want? they weren't aiming for anything groundbreaking or conceptual.

This will probably not get the award for best Photoshop use of the year.

Isn't the first one the girl in "The Orphan"?

Lucky for me I read the books, otherwise, I'd be really pissed off with all the spoilers
