Louisiana acting connection to new movie "The Hunger Games"

Monday, March 26, 2012 - 10:33pm

The Hunger Games debuted this past weekend.  The blockbuster brought in $150 million.

There's a Louisiana connection to the blockbuster.  Judd Lormand, originally from Lafayette but now lives in Baton Rouge, has a role in the movie.

He even was a part of the premiere of the movie in Los Angeles a couple of weeks ago.

Lormand's role is a peacekeeper in the new country of Panem. The movie was shot in North Carolina.
Lormand says his speaking part got cut out of the movie, but he's still in a major scene.

"Honestly, I feel great," Lomand says.  "I couldn't be happier... just started acting when i was very young, and then (I) got away from it because when I graduated high school, you had to move to L.A. and New York, and now L.A. and New York have come here."
