It's about time we get some 'Hunger Games' news to report that doesn't revolve around the casting of Katniss, Peeta or Gale. When this whole casting clamor began, Chloe Moretz was at the top of the list to lead as Katniss. Clearly that didn't end up working out, but, on the bright side, Lionsgate's decision to go with Jennifer Lawrence for the part made another role accessible to Moretz: Katniss' younger sister, Prim.

In the books, it isn't Katniss that's selected to be thrown into the brutal Hunger Games, but rather her little sister, 12-year-old Primrose, or Prim for short. Thanks to the Capitol's volunteering policy, if a girl's name is read and another girl between the ages of 12 and 18 would like to take her position, she's able to do so and, sure enough, Katniss seizes the opportunity and spares her sister. After that, Prim's role is fairly minimal, but in the third book in particular, she certainly steps into the spotlight.
