Willow Shields Cast as Prim in The Hunger Games

The Hunger Games Casts Katniss's Sister Prim

Ready for more Hunger Games casting news? Newcomer Willow Shields will play Prim Everdeen, Katniss's little sister. Prim, also known as Primrose, has a significant role in the stories, since she's the original person selected to compete in the Hunger Games, but is saved from entering when her sister Katniss takes her place.

I like that the casting of the movie is keeping me guessing — while there are some well-known actors like Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss and Elizabeth Banks as Effie, plenty of unknowns like Shields are being added too. To boot, more tributes have also been cast — Leven Rambin and Jack Quaid will play Glimmer and Marvel.

I really had my heart set on Elle Fanning, but I have faith in this girl's big eyes. Wish they would just announce Haymitch already!
