Another day, another tribute is cast in "The Hunger Games" sequel "Catching Fire." This time Brutus, a tribute from District 2 who made it out of the game alive, has been cast. Bruno Gunn, whose films include "Bad Teacher" and "Herbie Fully Loaded," will play Brutus in the "Hunger Games" follow-up, Entertainment Weekly reports.

District 2 champions are among the scarier people to compete in the annual battle to the death, as anyone who watched the District 2 competitor in "The Hunger Games" can attest. "Catching Fire" will focus on the Quarter Quell, which is kind of like a "Dancing with the Stars" all-star season if instead of dancing the returning competitors battled to the death. Peeta and Katniss must battle for their lives yet again in the Quell, though this time they'll be warring against the strongest, fiercest competitors of varying ages.

Other roles recently cast include Enobaria, a particularly vicious victor, also from District 2, who will be played by Meta Golding, and Mags, one of the game's older competitors, who will be played by "Sex and the City" star Lynn Cohen.

"Catching Fire" will be released Nov. 22, 2013.
