Newcomer Actors Join the ‘Hunger Games’ Cast

Only minutes ago, the actors who will portray the District 5 tributes in The Hunger Games movie adaptation were announced on Facebook. A special “Who Are the Tributes?” page seems to have been created especially for these announcements.

Most of the people chosen for the tribute roles are newcomers to acting. In the books, a majority of the tributes do not get a lot of time in the spotlight so it’s understandable that newcomer actors can fulfill these roles. But what about the newcomers with more substantial parts to play?

For instance, Amandla Stenberg has been hired for the part of Rue; she has completed two acting jobs so far. That character has action scenes and shares poignant moments with Katniss Everdeen. Only time will tell about the quality of these performances. What do you think?
