Pinch yourself, people, because "The Hunger Games" movie? It's actually happening. For real.
Okay, it may seem like we're stating the obvious; yesterday alone, for instance, we told you that Lionsgate had filled the roles of Thresh, Rue and Effie Trinket. But after years of feverishly praying that the wildly popular series of novels from author Suzanne Collins would be adapted for the big screen, fans can be forgiven for being in shock at the sudden deluge of news coming out of Hollywood. It's enough to make your head spin, right?
Well, don't look now, but with a new day comes even more new casting news, as Deadline is reporting that "Grey's Anatomy" actress Leven Rambin has been cast as District 1's Career Tribute Glimmer. Additionally, the official Hunger Games Facebook has declared Jack Quaid -- son of Meg Ryan and Dennis Quaid -- as District 1's male pick, Marvel.
They're casting people faster than you can tweet your friends about it!
Quick refresher course for those who went into an awesome-induced coma after reading the books: in the first film, Glimmer is part of the Career Pack, a group of contestants from the wealthier districts who were raised from birth with the sole aim of winning the games. Banding together to cull the weak, the Careers get more than they bargained for when they collide with everyone's favorite scrappy heroine, District 12's Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence).
And Rambin is no stranger to on-screen death and mayhem; in her brief career, she's already appeared on a number of TV shows, including "Grey's," "CSI: Miami" and "Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles."
So spread the word, but be quick about it: there are still more than a dozen gamers left to be cast and you never know when the next "Hunger Games" bombshell is going to drop. After all, in Hollywood, buzz never sleeps.
