    HOT GALLERY: Hello Angels! Find Out Where the First Cast is today!

    Now: Amanda Plummer as Wiress in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. Plummer has roles in both television and film. One of her best known roles was in Quentin Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction. She’ll be playing the District 3 tribute, Wiress, who despite her crazy behavior is an important ally for Katniss.

    Now: Lynn Cohen as Mags in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. Cohen will play Mags, District 4 tribute and mentor to Finnick. While Mags is silent, she is hugely important to Finnick and during the Quarter Quell.

    Now: Jeffery Wright as Beetee in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. He’s excited to join the franchise as Beetee because he feels the message of the films is important: “Issues around war and the consequences of war and the consequences of war on warriors and people – the human elements of that – I don’t think we can address enough. And if we can do it in a way that’s as thrilling as these movies are, more power to us.”

    Now: Jena Malone as Johanna Mason in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. Since Bastard Out of Carolina, Jena Malone has been in just about everything, including cult hits Donnie Darko and Saved! Malone, a huge fan of the books, knew that the role of Johanna was just too good to pass up.

    Now: Sam Claflin as Finnick Odair in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. Claflin has had parts in Pirates of the Caribbean and Snow White and the Huntsman . Claflin says that he received flak from The Hunger Games fans who were upset over him playing Finnick. But judging from the picture, Claflin is going to have no problem playing the sexy ally to Katniss.

    Now: Phillip Seymour Hoffman as Plutarch Heavensbee in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. Phillip Seymour Hoffman has been an independent film favorite with turns in Boogie Nights, Happiness and Magnolia. After he won the Best Actor Oscar in 2006 for Capote, Hoffman took on roles in a few big budget films but primarily stuck to his indie roots. Taking on a role in such a hot franchise isn’t a normal career move for Hoffman, but he’s not too worried about it.

    Now: Donald Sutherland as President Coriolanus Snow in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. Acting steadily for 50 years in every kind of film genre, Sutherland actually read The Hunger Games script, was hooked and pitched Gary Ross a more detailed backstory for the refined but villainous President Snow. Ross loved the material and even added a few original scenes to the finished script for the first film.

    Now: Elizabeth Banks as Effie Trinket in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. Already a friend of Gary Ross and a huge fan of The Hunger Games books, Banks said she actively campaigned for the role of outlandish Capitol District 12 representative Effie Trinket.

    Now: Stanley Tucci as Caesar Flickman in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. A character actor that manages to make every part big and memorable, Tucci was a no-brainer to play the flamboyant Capitol games host and interviewer, Caesar Flickman. Tucci even makes the character’s signature blue hair and eyebrows look cool, not Smurfy in the least.

    Now: Willow Shields as Primrose Everdeen. Two years later, the casting team on The Hunger Games auditioned Willow by tape and then brought her out to LA to meet with director Gary Ross. Shields quickly showed she had the emotional chops to be Katniss Everdeen’s empathetic little sister and won the part on the spot.

    Now: Lenny Kravitz as Cinna. In one of the most surprising casting decisions, Gary Ross hired Kravitz to play Cinna the Capitol stylist who bonds with and supports Katniss Everdeen in her preparation for the games. Kravitz told ScreenCrave: “Gary actually called to ask me to be in the film and I had to say, ‘I don’t know what it is.’ I read the book the next day. Downloaded it. Then I called him back very quickly.”

    Now: Woody Harrelson as Haymitch Abernathy. He almost passed up playing drunken District 12 victor and mentor Haymitch Abernathy until he read the books and director Gary Ross called to plead with him. Harrelson told Fandango, “Gary called me and said, “Dude, you’ve got to do this. I don’t have a second choice. You’ve got to play Haymitch.” And I was like, ‘Well, when you put it that way… let’s do this damn thing.’”

    Liam Hemsworth as Gale in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. After losing out to his brother Chris for the part of Thor, Liam quickly landed the romantic lead in the 2010 Miley Cyrus drama, The Last Song., (The two had a tumultuous real life romance.) He was then cast as Katniss’ fellow hunting buddy, Gale Hawthorne, who has inadvertently helped her train for the games and promises to feed and protect her family when she has to leave for the Capitol.

    Now: Josh Hutcherson as Peeta Mellark in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. By the time Hutcherson was cast as the baker’s son, Peeta Mellark, in The Hunger Games:Catching Fire, the actor already had seventeen films on his resume including starring roles in Zathura and Bridge to Terabithia. As Peeta, Hutcherson gets to play a lover and a fighter as Katniss’ fellow District 12 Tribute (and secret admirer).

    Now: Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. Jennifer Lawrence treated the role of 16-year-old heroine, Katniss Everdeen, very seriously. Lawrence dyed her hair brunette and learned archery skills to authentically reflect Katniss’ traits from the book. Since The Hunger Games, Lawrence has become America’s sweetheart and BFF. Oh, and she also won the Best Actress Oscar for Silver Linings Playbook last year.

    After he played for the Ducks, Aaron Schwartz did several episodes of The Adventures of Pete & Pete and had the lead role in a Disney movie about fat camp called Heavy Weights. Today, he’s slimmed down and can be seen each week on the Upper East Side as Vanya the doorman on Gossip Girl. #snakkle #celebs #hockey

    Brandon Adams starred in the first two Mighty Ducks movies and then went on to guest on shows like Boy Meets World, Moesha, and Sister, Sister. He had a leading role in the independent film MacArthur Park and has recently tried out rapping under the name B. Lee. #snakkle #celebs #hockey

    Elden Henson starred in all three Ducks movies and has worked steadily since, with roles in movies like Under the Tuscan Sun, The Butterfly Effect, Lords of Dogtown, and Deja Vu and on television series like ER, Private Practice, Psych, and Grey’s Anatomy. #snakkle #celebs #hockey

    The Mighty Ducks was Emilio Estevez’s first real post-Brat Pack success, and he went on to star in both of the sequels. These days, besides enjoying his status as the non-insane brother in his family, he seems to be more comfortable behind the camera. He wrote and directed the 2006 movie Bobby, which was nominated for Best Film at the Golden Globes, and in 2011 he directed his dad, Martin Sheen, in The Way. #snakkle #celebs #hockey

    The most well-known of the Ducks today, Joshua Jackson skated his way through all three films and went on to star as Pacey on Dawson’s Creek, which won him three Teen Choice awards. He has starred in a number of other movies, including Cruel Intentions, The Skulls, and Bobby, and he even spoofed himself with a cameo (as himself) in Ocean’s Eleven. Today he stars in Fringe, which just began its fifth and final season. #snakkle #celebs #hockey

    The Mighty Ducks aside, Joss Ackland is actually a quite accomplished English actor of stage and screen. He has appeared in more than 100 films and returned for the third Ducks movie. But his biggest regret comes from an earlier film: He says he wishes he never starred in Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey. Fair enough. #snakkle #celebs #hockey

    After The Mighty Ducks wrapped, Lane Smith went on to star in Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman for four seasons as the gruff editor-in-chief of The Daily Planet, Perry White. He passed away in 2005 at the age of 69 from Lou Gehrig’s disease. #snakkle #celebs #hockey

    Marguerite Moreau starred in all three Ducks movies but is probably better known these days for her role in Wet Hot American Summer. She has most recently been seen in recurring roles on Shameless and Parenthood. #snakkle #celebs #hockey

    Shaun Weiss starred in all three Ducks movies and has appeared in more than 30 commercials. He’s probably best known for his role as Sean on Freaks and Geeks. #snakkle #celebs #hockey
