Meta Golding has been recently cast as Enobaria in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. It will be a long wait before the Hunger Games sequel hits the theaters. But you can watch her soon in her upcoming movie Chicago 8.
Here’s the official press release:
The motion-picture The Chicago 8, centered around famed political protestors Abbie Hoffman and Jerry Rubin, will premiere theatrically in North Carolina September 4, 2012, minutes away from the 2012 Democratic National Convention, at the Epi-Centre Theatre. The movie is the true story from the notorious 1968 trial that resulted when seven leaders of a Vietnam anti-war movement, including Hoffman and Rubin, and a member of the Black Panthers, were charged with conspiracy to incite devastating riots in Chicago during the 1968 DNC. Desperate to stop what they saw as an “immoral war”, this group was ready to take on the establishment, express their freedom of speech by all means necessary, while paying a price for their actions.
“With recent demonstrations on Wall Street and in the Middle East, The Chicago 8 is timely with its message of being non-apathetic and fearless when it comes to standing up for your rights,” says The Chicago 8 director Pinchas Perry. “This movie becomes even more relevant during this 2012 election year as many voices are being heard throughout the country, no doubt creating a change in the political landscape.”
“The content of the case is really interesting and unusual because of what it meant historically and the way it unfolded,” states Gary Cole (The Brady Bunch Movie), who portrays attorney William Kunstler in the The Chicago 8. “It became kind of a circus. The usual decorum and tradition of a courtroom began to unravel, for many reasons, some of it having to do with the court itself deciding to play by its own rules, putting obstacles in the defense’s way that were ruled to be illegal after the trial.”
Winner of the Audience Choice Award for Best Feature Film at the 2011 Beverly Hills Film Festival, The Chicago 8 features a star-studded soundtrack with artists such as Bob Dylan and Jefferson Airplane. The cast also includes Danny Masterson (That 70’s Show, Men at Work TBS), Mayim Bialik (The Big Bang Theory), Orlando Jones (How to Live with your Parents for the Rest of your Life), Thomas Ian Nicholas (American Reunion), Philip Baker Hall (Magnolia), Steven Culp (The West Wing) and Meta Golding (Hunger Games: Catching Fire).
