Main principal casting for The Hunger Games film, which started shooting in North Carolina last month, has been completed. There are some big names attached to the project in the big-screen adaptation of the Suzanne Collins novel. Woody Harrelson has booked the role of Haymitch Abernathy, the drunken former tribute. John C. Reilly and Hugh Laurie were also up for the role, or so the story goes. Reilly later said the rumours were simply not true.
Lenny Kravitz is also joining the cast as Cinna and wonderful actor Toby Jones as Claudius Templesmith.
