EW.com broke the news yesterday that Thresh and Rue have been cast in the movie adaptation of Suzanne Collins’ popular book The Hunger Games (click here to find it in the Library). The roles of the two District 11 tributes were given to two relative new actors. Thresh will be played by Dayo Okeniyi and Rue will be played by Amandla Stenberg. If you remember, Thresh was the imposing male tribute from District 11 who showed mercy to Katniss because of her alliance with Rue. Rue of course was a pivotal character in The Hunger Games as she not only was a key alliance for Katniss but she also became a driving force for Katniss to survive the games. Need a refresher?
