Just yesterday we told you that filming for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is moving to Atlanta, Georgia and Hawaii.

Now casting calls in Atlanta have surfaced!

Though the call sheets state these are for a film called “The Idiom,” it’s highly likely that Lionsgate is using a bogus title to prevent too much attention.

They are currently seeking:

- African American Children 12 and younger. Light-medium skin tone, very thin. Need to have the ability to cry. Want to see distress in their eyes. Would love to see their crying ability on tape.
Subject “CRYING CHILDREN”

- African American female, darker skinned, very thin, age 60-80. Needs to have a hunched back or the ability to look like that for an extended amount of time. Also needs to have the ability to cry. See the pain in their eyes. Would love to see a video of them crying.
Subject “CRYING GRANDMOTHER”

- African American female, darker skinned, tall and muscular, age 15-16. Again, the ability to cry. Would love to see them cry on video.

    • Ellie

       Probably, but it gave me a giggle.

  • Julie L

    “We need to sell starvation and poverty”
    In most contexts, this sentence just seems wrong, but for Catching Fire, this excited me greatly!

  • http://www.facebook.com/iDomi Domi Ed

    Lives in LA, all the casting is in another state.
    I don’t fit any of these descriptions anyways.

    Unless 4’11 is tall and plump is the new “skinny”…

    :(

  • http://twitter.com/Echoreyn Echoreyn of Athens

    Agh, I actually fit one of these descriptions!  I think I’m going to go for it.

  • d3erudite

    Just sent in my photos to the casting office . So excited and if I don’t get picked I’ll gladly camp out near the set. Lol

  • http://twitter.com/emilyecstasyTM Emily Bryan

    Damn, I could have fit the Type 12/part 2 had I not just dyed my hair blue & pink.

  • Jael

    I wish I lived in Georgia.  I would have applied for the waltzing application since I can dance. 

  • WillowBlood

    On the website, the “Rich, Wealthy, Upscale” isn’t up… Is this because they had enough applications? It’s the only one I fit. 

  • Elphaba Thropp

    So many thin people. Don’t they need…um…large people? For the Capital or something? No?

  • Elphaba Thropp

    I’m a little confused about the descriptions under ‘Type Three’. Are those more people that they need?

  • Crazy-Eight

    lol, this list is hilarious! I’ve never seen an extra casting call sheet before. Believe me, I was not expecting this!!!

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1683360003 Paige Barton

    I get email updates from all the extras casting for atlanta and CL Casting recently sent me an email w/ these. i had NO IDEA The Idiom was actually Catching Fire until today!!! AHH. Even though i don’t fit any of these, i’m definitely going to try to get in as an extra, anyways!

    • Fluteplayer57

      would you be able to send me the correct info for the casting and where to send head shots/bios.  I have had some friends submit photos to a casting company that turned out to be bogus.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1683360003 Paige Barton

    oh, and they also sent me a bunch of other casting call stuff like stand-ins (probably for the main actors). andrew, if you want me, to, i can email them to you. who do i send it to?

  • guest

    Wanted: extras with anorexia… 

    haha no I know what they mean but yikes, “Extremely thin, I mean thin/loose skin/yellowish skin tone” should be seeking medical help not applying to movies!

  • Erikd16

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1683360003 Paige Barton

  • ExtraHopeful?

    How do we know if it is actually for Catching Fire? What if there really is a movie called The Idiom?

  • http://twitter.com/altonium Alton de Jesus

    I’m fat and asian. I guess I have no place in this movie.

  • Anon8

    “CRYING MUSCLE”

  • Mrs_Badcrumble

    “Would love to see a video of them crying.” sounds so wrong… =P
    From the description of starvation, and then the one for “funny beards” it does look like something Catching Fire would look for.

  • http://twitter.com/CassiopeiaDrake Cassie Drake

    I wish I fit these descriptions. From my bellybutton to my boobs, I look super-thin. You can see my ribs. But then the rest of my body is healthy and curvy looking lol

    …plus I’m Asian lol

  • Rumbleroar Luna

    “If you are a man with a beard willing to have it shaved in a untraditional way, please note that in the body of the e-mail.” Why do I find this funny? It’s not like it’s anything they haven’t done.
