Jena Malone, Kevin Nash and Lil Romeo in Talks for 'Catching Fire' Roles

In what is essentially becoming an almost daily event, there are new names being attached to roles in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.

We mentioned yesterday that former wrestler-turned-actor Kevin Nash had mentioned that he was up for a role in the sequel, but didn't specify which character. Many fans speculate that Nash would be portraying Brutus, the buff 40-something District 2 champion who volunteers for the third Quarter Quell.

Late last night, Jena Malone's name was added to the revolving door that is the Johanna Mason character sweepstakes. Mia Wasikowska, who was previously mentioned for the role is now out of the mix, though there's no word about model/actress Zoe Aggeliki.

Mason, who hails from District 7, becomes a strong ally to Katniss and Peeta during the third Quarter Quell. As previously mentioned, director Francis Lawrence is keen on finding the right actress for the role and is considering both established actors as well as lesser known talents.

This morning brings word that Romeo Miller (formerly known as Lil' Romeo) had a meeting with Lionsgate, though for what role was not revealed.

"I actually just met with Lionsgate about that, so you may be seeing me in one of The Hunger Games. That's all I'm saying," Miller said. He added, "[Its] not for a particular role, we just had a meeting, seeing if it was something I was interested in. I can't really talk too much, or they'll kill me. You know how The Hunger Games is."

This of course, leaves the door open to who Romeo could be playing in the sequels. Interestingly (and there may be nothing to this) Romeo makes no specification about whether the meeting was for Catching Fire or the two-part conclusion, Mockingjay.

We'll open it up to Hunger Games fans now. Who do you think Romeo should play, does Kevin Nash fit the role of Brutus and would Jena Malone make a perfect Johanna Mason? So many questions and we didn't even mention Finnick Odair…
