The reaping for The Hunger Games movie is over. The final tributes have been cast with Lionsgate announcing today the actors who will be playing Cato and Clove, the tributes from District 2.
Alexander Ludwig, once considered a potential actor for the role of Peeta, will be playing Cato. Isabelle Fuhrman will be playing Clove.
Ludwig is perhaps best known for his roles in The Seeker: The Dark is Rising and The Race to Witch Mountain, but also has experience in smaller roles for film and TV.
Furhman’s credits include Orphan, Hounddog (with Dakota Fanning), and a number of TV appearances, including The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, The Cleveland Show, Ghost Whisperer and Justice.
Cato and Clove are two of the most significant tributes in the 74th Hunger Games. Both Cato and Clove are known as “Career” tributes
District 2 is the place where the peacekeepers are trained and where the weapons are manufactured. It’s also where the stone quaries are and, like District 13, is known for graphite mining.
Clove was an expert at knife throwing while Cato was described in the book as a huge male tribute, and definitely not one you wanted to mess with. He was mean and unrelenting and used brute strength for almost everything and fought hard to win the Games.
So what do you think of Cato and Clove?
