“Catching Fire” casts Meta Golding and Patrick St. Esprit


Posted by on

As “Catching Fire” inches closer and closer to its production start date, we’re starting to receive our daily doses of casting news. The latest two characters to be cast are District 12 Head Peacekeeper Romulus Thread and District 2 career tribute Enobaria.

Lionsgate announced that Meta Golding has the role of Enobaria, a former career tribute who was trained her whole life to win The Hunger Games. When she gets called to compete in the Quarter Quell, she and Katniss Everdeen almost immediately became rivals. However, Enobaria is one of the few characters who will return again in “Mockingjay,” so recurring TV star Golding should consider herself lucky.

Meanwhile Variety is reporting that “Sons of Anarchy” star Patrick St. Esprit has been cast as Romulus Thread. He also acts as a villainous character in “Catching Fire,” and is one who frequently stands in Katniss’s way. He also has one unsavory run-in with her best friend, Gale.

The number of characters left to be cast has begun to dwindle. Several of the Quarter Quell tributes have been cast including Wiress, Mags and Johanna Mason, while Lionsgate is close to casting Beetee and Finnick. In addition, Philip Seymour Hoffman has come on board as gamemaker Plutarch Heavensbee.

That still leaves characters like Cashmere, Gloss and Twill left to be cast. “Catching Fire” should start filming in the next month or so. Lionsgate has been casting some major names in this movie to play the 22 other tributes in the Quarter Quell, so we’re really looking forward to hearing who will be joining the “Hunger Games” ensemble.

Do you think that these two are good picks for “Catching Fire”? Tell us in the comments section below or on Facebook and Twitter.

Portlandia Goes Out With A Bang

Posted by on

The end is near. In mere days Portlandia wraps up its final season, and oh what a season it’s been. Lucky for you, you can watch the entire season right now right here and on the IFC app, including this free episode courtesy of Subaru.

But now, let’s take a moment to look back at some of the new classics Fred and Carrie have so thoughtfully bestowed upon us. (We’ll be looking back through tear-blurred eyes, but you do you.)

Couples Dinner

It’s not that being single sucks, it’s that you suck if you’re single.

Cancel it!

A sketch for anyone who has cancelled more appointments than they’ve kept. Which is everyone.

Forgotten America

This one’s a “Serial” killer…everything both right and wrong about true crime podcasts.

Wedding Planners

The only bad wedding is a boring wedding.

Disaster Hut

It’s only the end of the world if your doomsday kit doesn’t include rosé.

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
