thg district 5 'The Hunger Games': Jackie Emerson, Chris Mark cast as the District 5 tributesSix districts down, six to go.

“The Hunger Games”
has found its District 5 tributes: Chris Mark and Jackie Emerson. In the novel written by Suzanne Collins, we never learn their characters’ real names, but Emerson’s is referred to as Foxface.

Foxface is described as “a girl that looks like a fox.” She’s quick, clever and goes far in the Games due to her ability to remain hidden from the other tributes. We never learn much about Mark’s character. 

Both Mark and Emerson are virtual unknowns in Hollywood. Mark has worked as a stunt actor in several projects, including “Kick-Ass,” “Jumper” and “Nikita.” He was also Michael Cera’s stunt double in “Scott Pilgrim vs. the World.”

Elizabeth Banks recently confirmed that she will be playing Effie Trinket in the film.

“The Hunger Games” stars Jennifer Lawrence (Katniss), Josh Hutcherson (Peeta) and Liam Hemsworth (Gale) and hits theaters on Mar. 23, 2012.
