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.
