‘Catching Fire’ Catches Bruno Gunn for Brutus

Bruno Gunn for 'Catching Fire'
Brian & Barrett Pictures

Lionsgate is quickly filling the holes still left in ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire‘ cast, the most recent additions being ‘Criminal Minds’ actress Meta Golding as a District 2 tribute member, ‘Sons of Anarchy’s’ Patrick St. Esprit as a Peacekeeper and former ‘Sex and the City’ nanny Lynn Cohen as Mags. The next actor to be pulled into the folds of the franchise is Bruno Gunn as the former Career victor from District 2, Brutus.

Gunn, who was previously featured in the HBO series ‘Oz,’ is coming off his work for ‘The Office‘ for the screen adaptation of Suzanne Collins’ novel. In the book, Brutus was known, rightly so, for his brutality in the arena. But he’s not to be underestimated.

Fans of the book will remember Haymitch, our favorite trainer who likes to abuse the bottle a bit, was shocked to learn that Brutus was seemingly smart enough to want to team up with Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) in the Quarter Quell. Oh yeah, he’s also the brother (or should we say, used to be the brother) of Cato, whom we all know from ‘The Hunger Games’ when he nearly took Peeta with him to be eaten by the mutated wolves.

Quite a few more spots still need to be decided on in the coming weeks to join up with standout stars Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth. More minor spots are still left open for the tributes of Districts 5, 6, 9 and 10, but fans are getting more pumped for who will possibly be decided on for Finnick.

Which actors do you think would be great additions to the franchise? Sound off in the comments below.
