The news I know a lot of people have been waiting for: CASTING INFO for the Catching Fire movie!! This is straight from the acting-auditions.org website. It will give you all the information you need to know for upcoming Catching Fire auditions.
The second film in Lionsgate’s The Hunger Games Trilogy, “Catching Fire”, is gearing up for pre-production and casting will soon be underway in Los Angeles for new co-starring and supporting roles. The day players, extras, photo doubles, and stand-ins will be hired in North Carolina as the beginning of filming approaches. The studio is fast tracking this project because Jennifer Lawrence has a contract commitment with 20th Century Fox for a sequel to “X-Men: First Class” which starts shooting in January 2013. Filming on “Catching Fire” will begin this Summer, 2012. “The Hunger Games” took 4-1/2 months to complete principal photography.
“The Hunger Games” budget has been estimated at $78 million, and the film has grossed over $619 million worldwide as of May 6, 2012. The movie was released on March 23, 2012. After two days of release, it became Lionsgate’s highest grossing film ever. “Catching Fire” will hit theaters on Friday November 22, 2013.

Remember – when looking at any casting information you should never have to pay to audition or have your resume seen by casting agents. Anything that asks you to pay is a scam. This information has not been confirmed by Lionsgate as of yet.
So be cautious, but if you plan on auditioning, good luck!
