Hunger Games Adds an Orphan and Peeta Runner-up

The Hunger Games is alllmost done filling out its extensive cast, and this week, they've added some crucial roles: In addition to Woody Harrelson, who's been confirmed to play Haymitch, the Gary Ross–directed film has cast Alexander Ludwig as Cato and Isabelle Fuhrman as Clove. The 19-year-old Ludwig was one of the finalists for the movie's male lead, Peeta (eventually claimed by Josh Hutcherson), while 14-year-old Furhman's most notable credit was as the totally freaky title character in Orphan. Since Clove is supposed to be intimidating and scary, we say: Good casting! [Hunger Games/Facebook]
