MORE SUPPORTING CAST
The evening didn’t stop there. More of the actors showed up, people I’ve seen in other things and really. The evening was really starting to kick in and the revelation that we were actually there became more of a reality.
Jack Quaid, who plays Marvel, the tribute boy from District 1, got a chuckle out of my friend, Flo, after she called out to him, “Jack! You look Marvelous!” That got his attention, and we got this photo.

Amandla Stenberg, who plays Rue, the tribute girl from District 11, came out in a very cute sequined green/white dress. Her performance in the movie was moving.

Dayo Okeniyi who plays Thresh, the tribute boy from District 11, sports the Mockingjay pin on the black carpet. When one of the photographers on the press side told him to turn around and take a picture with the fans, he happily obliged both media and fans.

Leven Rambin, who plays Glimmer, the tribute girl from District 1, came out in a flaming red form fitting dress with an extremely low cut in the front. I actually thought the design of the dress was very cool with different shades of red looking like flames.

Willow Shields, who plays Katniss’ sister Prim, came out in a cute light blue sheer age appropriate two-piece top and skirt. Poor girl looked like she really didn’t know what she was supposed to do, but she just went with it.

Isabelle Fuhrman plays Clove, the tribute girl from District 2, and boy is she vicious! Don’t be fooled by her small frame, there is reason to fear her character in the movie, especially when she has her hands on a throwing knife. Despite playing a not-so-nice character in the film, Isabelle was all sorts of lovely on the carpet.

Alexander Ludwig plays Cato, the tribute boy from District 2, who’s Katniss’ main antagonist in this movie, was all smiles and joy, livin’ it up on the black carpet, meeting and greeting the fans. The Facebook Mayor for District 2, Aldrin Gamos, got to take a picture with both him and Isabelle.

Jacqueline Emerson, who plays Foxface, the tribute girl from District 5, was stunning in an emerald green strapless dress.

Toby Jones plays the announcer for the Games, Claudius Templesmith. He seemed genuinely surprised when the fans screamed out his name.

Wes Bentley got to flesh out a character that isn’t even mentioned by name in the book (first book), and he did such a fine job playing Head Gamemaker Seneca Crane. I think he realizes that Seneca Crane’s beard also helped him out a bit.

Donald Sutherland cannot be dismissed as he, too, was able to have more of a presence in this film than his character had in the first book. Although he plays the contemptible President Snow, he was appreciative to the fans by signing posters and taking pictures, even at one point giving the three-fingered salute to us.
