NEWS: Casting call for extras in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire

With the reported Catching Fire first day filming date nearly approaching, it appears that we're now getting some info about casting for extras and additional proofs that the movie will indeed be filmed in Atlanta, Georgia.

Here are some information from Atlanta based agency, Catrett Locke Casting, who is looking for extras with descriptions that have obvious resemblance to the characters needed in Catching Fire.
We are seeking men, women and children. Model, Beautiful, Upscale, Political types. This will have a lot to do with the way you carry yourself. If you are a man with a beard willing to have it shaved in a untraditional way please note that in the body of the e-mail. Please put TOP OF THE WORLD in the subject box. 
Seeking men with chiseled chest and abs. Sometimes its hard to do my job but hey some has to do it. Ok back to work. If you have chiseled arms and chiseled abs please put KEEP in the subject box. Please make sure to send a waist shot (shirtless) and a full body (shirtless).

We are seeking men and women that are extremely thin. There are a couple of different looks we are trying to achieve so please read carefully and submit where you feel you fit the best.
Type 3
Pale/Ashen Skin and blk, very drk brown hair
Type 6/Part 1
Light brown/mousey brown hair, brown eyes or blueish/green/greyish eyes
Type 6/Part 2/very specific (we know there won’t be many but…)
Extremely thin I mean thin/loose skin/yellowish skin tone
Type 8/Part 1
Brown hair, pale skin, hazel type eyes
Type 8/Part 2
Dark brown hair, darker skin, brown eyes
Type 11/Part 1
African American
Type 11/Part 2
Latin American/Hispanic types
Type 12/Part 1
Olive skin, gray eyes, black/dark brown hair
Type 12/Part 2
Pale skin, blonde, blue eyes
Please put which type/part you are submitting for in the subject box. Please have pictures that show the thin body type you have. The better the pictures the better your chances. This is where minimal make-up is wanted. These people would not have the make-up piled on. We are really trying to sell this less fortunate look. This is open to children as well but please note if they are a minor in the subject box.
Example Type 12/Part 1/Minor
The movie for this casting call is being referred to as "The Idiom." But with the resemblance of the descriptions to the characters in Catching Fire and with the fact that The Hunger Games also had a working title, "Artemis," while filming in North Carolina last year, it's very likely that this could really be it.

Another implication that this is for a Hunger Games sequel is the security warning and the need for haircuts (similar to the first film):
[W]e will not allow cell phones on set or in holding. They need to be kept in the car or we will have a check in process where you can leave your phones with us and check the periodically. Anyone caught Tweeting or facebooking anything about what happens on set, at fittings, about locations or anything else will immediately be escorted off set and not be able to return. 
This film will require very specific looks. You will all need to be pre-fitted and most likely will receive haircuts depending on the role you are cast for. If you are not comfortable please do not submit. We will not be upset but we want to save us both our time.
Make sure to follow all the instructions listed on CLC’s website and like Catrett Locke Casting' Facebook page to keep up-to-date with all the extras casting news!

Thanks to The Hob for compiling all the information.
