Maria Howell

Lionsgate has announced yet another member of the cast for the upcoming Hunger Games sequel — The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. Actress and musician Maria Howell (who will also be a regular on JJ Abrams‘ new show Revolution) will play the role of Seeder, a victorious tribute from District 11 who competes in the Quarter Quell (the 75th Hunger Games). The press release did not confirm or deny this, but it is believed that the Quarter Quell will be on a tape delay, and that NBC will interrupt it with a show about a monkey.

Here is the synopsis for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. Keep checking back here for any future Hunger Games casting notices. They still have the extras, craft services, and the location scouts to announce, because if you are associated with the Hunger Games in any way, you are getting a press release.

THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE begins as Katniss Everdeen has returned home safe after winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games along with fellow tribute Peeta Mellark.   Winning means that they must turn around and leave their family and close friends, embarking on a “Victor’s Tour” of the districts.  Along the way Katniss senses that a rebellion is simmering, but the Capitol is still very much in control as President Snow prepares the 75th Annual Hunger Games (The Quarter Quell) – a competition that could change Panem forever.

THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE will be directed by Francis Lawrence, and produced by Nina Jacobson’s Color Force in tandem with producer Jon Kilik. The novel on which the film is based is the second in a trilogy that has sold more than 50 million books in print and digital in the U.S. alone.
Lionsgate will release THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE on November 22, 2013.
