District 1 has its tributes: Jack Quaid (son of Dennis Quaid and Meg Ryan) and Leven Rambin (Sloan’s daughter Sloan on Grey’s Anatomy) will play Marvel and Glimmer in The Hunger Games. In the series, District 1 is one of the richer districts because it manufactures luxury goods for the Capitol. In keeping with the lush lifestyle, the children receive strange names. But don’t think they’re softies: Katniss nicknames the District 1 tributes “Careers” because of how they band together during training. Of course, there can be only one champion.
Quaid doesn’t seem to have much acting experience, though of course he comes from an impressive pedigree. Rambin got her start on All My Children and has made recurring appearances on CSI: Miami, One Tree Hill, and Grey’s. Rumor has it that Elizabeth Banks will be joining the cast as the effusive Effie Trinket, Katniss and Peeta’s handler, but we’ll report separately on that if it’s confirmed.
