We tried to keep you as up-to-date as possible while casting was announced for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, however, recent screenings of the film have revealed one controversial performer from the original film has been recast. Garry Ross’s The Hunger Games had its share of problems. Amongst them was the director’s BONKERS decision to cast Buttercup the cat as a tuxedo cat. The fan outcry was enormous and thanks to author Suzanne Collins and new director Francis Lawrence, Buttercup is now played by a yellow cat who likely has less than fifteen seconds of screen time.

This one’s for the fans, guys. (io9)
