Meta Golding

These Catching Fire casting announcements are popping up every day now, aren’t they? Obviously with filming beginning soon they need to have their cast in place, and today we’ve got a another face to add to this odd Facebook cast book thingie. Really, it’s weird, click the link to see what I’m talking about.

What is this? Pokemon collecting?

Anyway, the newest cast member added to The Hunger Games‘ sequel will be Meta Golding as Enobaria, a returning champion from District 2 who’s well known for the particularly brutal way she won her games.

I’m not really familiar with Golding’s work so I really have no clue how shell fit in the role. Guess it’s a wait and see kind of thing. What do you think of her being cast as Enobaria?

Press release:

Santa Monica, CA, August 7, 2012- Lionsgate® and the filmmakers of THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE are pleased to announce that Meta Golding has been cast in the role of Enobaria in the much anticipated film adaptation of Suzanne Collins’ worldwide smash hit novel Catching Fire. A former career tribute from District 2, Enobaria is known for the particularly brutal, disturbing way in which she came to win The Hunger Games.
Golding is known to television audiences from series regular and guest starring roles on “CSI,” “Criminal Minds,” “House,” and “Cold Case” and will also be seen in the upcoming independent film The Chicago 8. 
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.
