Those parts sound very Panem to us, but as Lionsgate has yet to confirm that filming will be taking place in Atlanta, we’re still going to label this one a rumor. You can get more information on how to audition for these roles from the Catrett Locke Casting facebook page or check out the specific casting requests here and here.
One additional note, we highly recommend you read this note from the casting agency in regards to what is to be expected of those who wish to become extras, from photos to on set behavior.
