The District 5 Tributes have now been cast. Lionsgate has today announced that Chris Mark will play the un-named boy tribute while Jackie Emerson is Foxface.
Both are newcomers to acting, however Chris Mark is another teenager with a lot of stunt work experience. He’s worked on several films including Kick Ass, Scott Pilgrim vs The World, and Nikita. He also teaches Extreme Martial Arts to young people.
A fair few fans have been waiting to see who will be cast as Foxface – the nickname Katniss gives to the female tribute from District 5 after seeing her on the TV. Foxface is the second to last tribute to die. She is one of the most clever tributes as she uses a number of strategies, such as hiding in the Cornucopia at the feast and stealing food from the Careers, to survive. She dies after taking and eating poisonous berries that Peeta had gathered which he thought were OK and had meant to eat himself. Although she never says a word in the book, she can be heard to laugh when Katniss destroys the food the Careers had been protecting.
So what do you think of these latest casting choices?
