Here's some set pics of the highly anticipated movie The Hunger Games taken this week in Shelby, North Carolina. Some of the pics show the mythical District 12, the poor district (formerly Appalachia) where the main characters Katniss Everdeen (played by Jennifer Lawrence) and Petta Mellark (played by Josh Hutcherson) are from.
The Shelby Star, has some tips for those Cleveland County residents hoping to be an extra in the film:
"Two casting calls were held at Cleveland Mall and hundreds of locals showed up hoping to land an on-screen role. If you haven’t been contacted already about being in the film, site coordinator Jason King advises hopeful actors to contact the casting agent they spoke to when they signed up."
