Meta Golding: Latest Tribute To Join 'Catching Fire'by: Posted:
Another day passes, and another infamous former tribute joins the "Victor's Tour" of Lionsgate's "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire."
Lionsgate on Tuesday made it official that television veteran Meta Golding has joined the tentpole sequel's ever-burgeoning ensemble, Coming Soon reported. She's slated to play Enobaria, a previously victorious District 2 tribute. She plays for keeps: her blood-bathed legacy was a uniquely violent victory. Golding herself has made her name up to now with regular and guest roles on television including stints with "House," "CSI," "Criminal Minds" and "Cold Case."
She's also now appearing in the indie film "The Chicago 8."
In addition to returning breakout star Jennifer Lawrence as the more recently heroic Katniss Everdeen, Golding will be joined by "Sucker Punch" and "Donnie Darko" actress Jena Malone, announced in early July as playing young, psychologically fractured ex-victor Johanna Mason. Picking up following Katniss' performance alongside compatriot Peeta Mellark, "Catching Fire" sees her strike out from her family and friends on the Victor's Tour to all districts as The Capitol and President Snow construct the 75th Hunger Games.
Finnick Odaire, fresh off his turn in "Snow White and The Huntsman," has recently had his name bandied about as the man who could be Clafin, the sure-shot-with-a-trident former tribute with his own scar tissue to spare. Joining him as mild-mannered wire wiz Beetee could be veteran Tony Shalhoub, who'd need but to turn the dial somewhere in the vicinity of his acclaimed awkwardness of eight seasons on USA's "Monk."
"The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" hits theaters Nov. 22, 2013.
