OFFICIAL: E. Roger Mitchell Cast As Chaff In “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire”

E. Roger Mitchell will play 45th Hunger Games victor Chaff from District 11 in “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire”!

Chaff is described as “six feet tall, with dark skin, and an arm that ends with a stump because he lost his hand in the 45th Hunger Games. He chose not to get a prosthetic arm.” Chaff was also guessed to be around mid to late forties.

E. Roger Mitchell, born in February 18, 1971 according to his IMDb, is 41 years old this year which is close to the age Chaff was supposed to be. In terms of height, standing at around 1.78m (5’10”) according to his resume, E. Roger Mitchell is a pretty close match to Chaff’s 1.83m (6′) height.

E. ROGER MITCHELL CAST AS CHAFF IN LIONSGATE’S THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE

 

Santa Monica, CA, August 10, 2012- Lionsgate® and the filmmakers of THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE are pleased to announce that E. Roger Mitchell has been cast in the role of Chaff in the much anticipated film adaptation of Suzanne Collins’ worldwide smash hit novel Catching Fire. A tribute from District 11, Chaff won the 45th Annual Hunger Games and will compete in the Quarter Quell.

E. Roger Mitchell is an Atlanta based actor with decades of experience on the stage.  His small and big screen roles have included “Battle: Los Angeles”, The Shield, One Tree Hill, and Tyler Perry projects including “Diary Of A Mad Black Woman”, “Daddy’s Little Girls”, and House Of Payne.

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.

District 12 Village Set Land Owner Is Selling It For US$1.4M

Here’s your chance to own the piece of land inclusive of the buildings that were used as District 12 in ‘The Hunger Games’ movie.

According to Leader-Post, Wade Shepard, the land owner is selling:

Wade Shepherd owns an abandoned village. Henry River Mill, N.C., has 72 acres, 20-some buildings, and a lot of moody atmosphere. Nobody cared – until it became the set for yokel-ville District 12 in the movie, The Hunger Games.

Now Shepherd, 83, wants to sell the whole place, for a mere $1.4 million, because he’s sick of Games enthusiasts coming around being annoying.

Duh. Four words, Wade: Hunger Games Theme Park. If he can’t make money off this place, he’s just not trying.

If you have the money, would you buy it?

The Hunger Games mentioned in Lifestyle magazine

Other than The Hunger Games showing this year, there are many other blockbusters that will be showed this year. In the Feburary issue of the Lifestyle magazine, they did a preview of the movies that is coming up.

Image of page.

Close up on The Hunger Games part!

Just in case the image does not load, the words are typed out below:

Based on the trilogy of novels by Suzanne Collins, The Hunger Games revolves around a dystopian society, in which teenagers and children are chosen to fight in a televised battle. The books have a massive, largely young adult following that rivals that of Twilight, and is poised to be the next hit franchise. Brooding romance it is not, but after glittering vampires and shirtless werewolves, a teenage tale of war and survival could be a welcome change of taste.

I don’t think that the Lifestyle magazine is sold outside, but if your parents are members of NTUC, your parents should have it! 🙂

‘The Hunger Games’ will be released in Singapore on 22 March 2012.
