Wes Bentley (aka Seneca Crane)and Alexander Ludwig (aka Cato) are in the newest edition of VMAN Magazine which hit shelves today!
JustJaredJr has an excerpt from Alexander’s interview, giving details as to what Alexander did to prepare for the filing of the Hunger Games -
“For The Hunger Games, I needed to get jacked, so I ate like a caveman and lighted heavy weights almost every day,” Alexander shared. “To gain muscle, dieting is just as important as the actual working out, if not more so. I also wanted to keep an eight-pack so I had to bike a lot and do a ridiculous amount of sit-ups.”
Alexander Ludwig, who plays Cato, tells a hilarious story of an on-set prank Amandla Stenberg (Rue) and Jackie Emerson (Foxface) played on him-
I was totally sweaty and exhausted after a day of fighting, and I walked into my trailer. I’d already taken off my costume, so I was just in my briefs, and I couldn’t find my clothes anywhere! Amandla, who plays Rue, and Jackie, who plays Foxface, had hidden them in the fridge.
The interview is in the newest issue of Teen Vogue.

Apparently a new trailer for The Hunger Games is on its way very soon!! At least according to Alexander Ludwig, Cato, as he tweeted this earlier today:
Are you jumping in your chair with anticipation?! I sure am!!
