As many here will know, Meg’s 19 year old son Jack plays the role of Marvel in the upcoming movie The Hunger Games, to be released late March this year. Jack is a talented student at NYU Tisch School of the Arts. The latest issue of Interview Magazine has a short interview with him plus a photo:

““I do something horrible to someone very small and cute, and then I have my ass handed to me immediately after,” says 19-year-old Jack Quaid of his feature film debut in the much-anticipated post-apocalyptic fantasy The Hunger Games, which is due out in March. “When I got cast, I was told that people would be spitting on me in the streets,” he says. (…). Quaid plays Marvel, a spear-throwing competitor in a state-sponsored, televised outdoor-arena battle to the death. (Spoiler alert: He receives an A-list slaying at the hands of Academy Award–nominee Jennifer Lawrence, who plays the teenage heroine Katniss.). The project (…) also serves as a high-profile career kick-off for the son of Meg Ryan and Dennis Quaid, whose previous on-screen experience was mostly limited to comedic shorts done with friends—a highlight of which is The Invasion of the Douchebags, in which a Phil Collins song triggers a virus that turns residents of Martha’s Vineyard into, well, douchebags.” (…) READ MORE HERE

    I like Jack’s description of his role!
    Apart from it being Quaid Jr’s acting debut, do you think The Hunger Games will be worth watching?
    Bearing in mind that I haven’t read the books.

    I read the book (long before Jack got this role) and I liked it. If it is done well, the movie can be worth watching. It’s pretty graphic here and there though (with young people getting killed in the arena).
