The names being called for "The Hunger Games" continues to grow by the day. Earlier this week it was announced that newcomers Amandla Stenberg and Dayo Okeniyi signed on to play District 11 members Rue and Thresh and that Elizabeth Banks was being circled to take on the role of chaperon Effie Trinket.
Now, as our friends over at Hollywood Crush reported, two more have joined in for the "Games" and much like Stenberg and Okeniyi, they are relative unknowns. Jack Quaid (son of Dennis Quaid and Meg Ryan) and TV actress Leven Rambin ("Grey's Anatomy") will star as the privileged District 1 tributes, Marvel and Glimmer. While this casting gets fans one step closer to a better idea of how the film will look, there are still nine more district slots that need to be filled, as well as major characters such as Haymitch and Prim.
Check out the rest of Wednesday's biggest casting news in the movie business, including Ben Affleck saying no to "The Great Gatsby" and John Krasinski getting in line for "Nobody Walks"!
Affleck Is No Go For "Gatsby"
Due to scheduling conflicts (or perhaps he just found out that it was going to be in 3-D) Ben Affleck has turned down the role of Tom Buchanan for Baz Luhrmann's treatment of "The Great Gatsby." According to Deadline, Affleck will be busy filming another project called "Argo" when the "Gatsby" cast -- which includes Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan, Tobey Maguire, and possibly Isla Fisher -- shoots in Australia.
"Nobody Walks," Everybody Awesome Joins The Cast
The Wrap reports that John Krasinski, Rosemarie DeWitt and Olivia Thirlby are all in talks to star in an upcoming indie called "Nobody Walks." The movie centers on an artist who interrupts the lives of a Los Angeles family after they invite him in to his home. The film is slated for a December 23 release date.
James Marsden and Claire Danes Are "As Cool As I Am"
No, really. The Wrap confirms that James Marsden and Claire Danes will star in a project called "As Cool As I Am." The actors will play the self-centered parents of a young girl named Lucy Diamond (a part that has not yet been cast.) Max Mayer will direct the film, which begins shooting in New Mexico next month.
Patrick Warburton Gets Cast As Himself...Sort Of
Patrick Warburton will officially be joining the cast of "Ted," the Seth MacFarlane comedy that features Mark Wahlberg, Joel McHale and Mila Kunis. But, it seems his part was pretty much written for him. As Deadline explains, Warburton's part of the "sexually confused co-worker" of Wahlberg's character (who just so happens to be willing a teddy bear to life) was described in the script as "a burly Patrick Warburton type."
