Details about the first Hunger Games movie – due out in March 2012 – are still scarce, but we’ve got an exclusive sneak peek at the face behind one of the story’s most beloved characters. Thirteen-year-old Amandla Stenberg will be playing Rue, the clever, birdlike character who joins forces with main character Katniss Everdeen. Stenberg is a relative unknown: aside from spots on McDonald’s commercials, her biggest gig to date has been playing the younger version of Zoë Saldana’s character in Colombiana. We think she’s a perfect fit for the sweet, small-but-mighty Rue – we can’t wait to see her in action. -Allison Friedman
