Ready for some casting news “Hunger Games” fans and “Mighty Ducks” enthusiasts can squawk about? Elden Henson, otherwise known as the hard-hitting “Bash Brother” Fulton Reed in Disney’s hockey film franchise, has been cast as Pollux in “Mockingjay,” according to an announcement from Lionsgate.
Fans of Suzanne Collins’ dystopian series know Pollux as the Avox who becomes heroine Katniss Everdeen’s cameraman and guide to Panem’s underground. Big and burly, Pollux works alongside his brother Castor, who was also cast today. “The Help” actor Wes Chatham will assume that role. This rounds out the District 12 tribute’s camera crew, which already included Cressida (played by Natalie Dormer) and Messalla (played by Evan Ross).
Filming on the two-part franchise finale has reportedly begun.
“The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1” is slated for a November 21, 2014 release, while “Mockingjay – Part 2” will open November 20, 2015.
