Meg Ryan’s son debuts in “Hunger Games” film

PanARMENIAN.Net - Currently a sophomore in the Experimental Theatre Wing at the Tisch School of the Arts at New York University, the only son of Meg Ryan and Dennis Quaid, Jack Quaid is finally getting his chance to show what he can do in front of the camera, The Hollywood Reporter said.

But he knows it won't be easy to gain a following; cast as Marvel in the upcoming Hunger Games movie, Quaid's dastardly character is one of the "Career Tributes" who have been preparing since childhood to compete in the Games. “When I got cast, I was told that people would be spitting on me in the streets,” he told Interview magazine.

Quaid has previously only appeared in short films that can be seen on Funny or Die, but The Hunger Games, out March 23, is his first film with a budget more than "about 20 bucks." But he has fond memories of childhood visits to see his parents at work. “I’ve been on sets my whole life,” he says. “But this is the first time in front of the camera and not in a chair with Sour Patch Kids from the craft services truck. It was a new sensation. It was weird... I really liked it.”

The Hunger Games are set in a future where the Capitol selects a boy and girl from the twelve districts to fight to the death on live television, with Katniss Everdeen volunteering to take her younger sister's place for the latest match.
