'Hunger Games' finds its Foxface

Chris Mark  Jackie Emerson

Another day, another Hunger Games casting notice: Just one day after Elizabeth Banks tweeted that she will indeed play Effie Trinket in the adaptation of Suzanne Collins’ dystopian novel, Lionsgate has revealed the identity of the actors playing the Hunger Games’ District 5 tributes. Jacqueline Emerson is set for Foxface, the sly and clever tribute who never speaks a single word in the book. Like the other tributes cast in the film – with the exception of Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) and Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) – Emerson is an unknown actress for most audiences, having only voiced a role in 2004’s Father of the Pride TV series.

Chris Mark – an actor with a stunt work background who has also had roles in projects like The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emporer and Unnatural History – has been cast as Foxface’s fellow District 5 tribute, who goes unnamed in the book. Emerson and Mark joins Lawrence, Hutcherson, Banks, Liam Hemsworth, Paula Malcomson, and Willow Shields in the film, directed by Gary Ross.
