Ashlee Simpson has a reason to congratulate her boyfriend Evan Ross today—he was just cast in the third Hunger Games film.
The sequel, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, is still three months away from a wide release date (November 22), but production on the third installment is already well underway.
Evan, who you may also know as Diana Ross’s son, will have a small role in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay; his character Messalla is a resident of the Capital who works for a TV crew that produces the brutal “Hunger Games” tradition, which is a key part of the books.
Just like the Twilight franchise, the final film, Mockingjay, will be split up into two films. They will be making their way to audiences in 2014 and 2015.
