The Hunger Games Casts Dayo Okeniyi, Amandla Stenberg

by at . Comments

Two more roles in The Hunger Games have been filled.

Lionsgate has confirmed that the parts of Rue and Thresh of District 11 have officially been cast - Dayo Okeniyi will play strong and quiet District 11 tribute Thresh, while Amandla Stenberg will play Katniss Everdeen's young ally Rue.

These two look the part(s), but as far as acting chops, they're unproven. Doesn't mean they won't pass muster, of course. Everyone starts somewhere.

The pair joins Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth, who recently won the roles of Peeta Mellark and Gale Hawthorne, respectively, in the new film.

The gorgeous, talented Jennifer Lawrence will play Katniss, of course.

Who's still left to be cast? One major part - the role of Haymitch Abernathy, the only living Hunger Games winner of District 12 - is still vacant.


Oh! She is perfect! Honestly, though I'm going to look away, I'm not sure I can watch that little girl die!


i did not picture either of the characters like this.............lets see how the movie is i cant wait! i love the books!


YES! Perfect looks. Amandla is adorable and looks exactly as I imagined her. I can't wait to see her as Rue. And Dayo looks the attitude (and physique of course) of Thresh and I'm excited to see how he performs as him. Yes yes yes! Thank you for choosing some newcomers!


I love the Hunger Games trilogy. I'm not so excited a bout the movie. I think the books are always way better. The cast so far sucks!!!! Yeah that girl nominated for the Oscar, I'm not so sure about her.
