We will continue debating the merits of both Peeta and Gale until the end of time, but with the release of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 around the corner, it’s time to put the spotlight on the new players — especially with up-and-coming hunks like Wes Catham in the mix. Come Friday, you’ll see familiar faces in the Capitol: Game of Thrones star Natalie Dormer plays Cressida, the Resident Director and also among the districts, and four-time Oscar nominee Julianne Moore is stepping into the role of President Alma Coin. But are you acquainted with Broadway babe Patina Miller (who plays Commander Paylor) and House of Cards hottie Maheshala Ali (Boggs)?

Hop into the gallery above and get to know these Hunger Games newcomers before seeing the flick this Friday.
