The Hunger Games Currently Seeking Crying Black Children

By Gabe Delahaye / August 9, 2012

Casting calls are almost always hilarious. Look, if you want to see an alien shove itself into a human flesh suit in Men in Black and walk around all herky-jerky for the big guffaws, then someone has to put out a casting call that says “Seeking weird looking man who might just be a suit of skin wrapped too tightly around a gross alien spider body who can walk like an absolute mess. Must own trenchcoat.” That’s how the magic is made! But the latest round of casting calls for extras on the Altanta set of the second Hunger Games movie are pretty funny. From ONTD:

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.
