Parting is such sweet sorrow!
And some of the stars from The Hunger Games are now in mourning upon learning the news of director Gary Ross's resignation.
Three of the Games' tributes volunteered their feelings:
Dayo Okeniyi (Thresh): I'm heartbroken. He was the perfect person for me for the first movie, because he has this great ability to do the indie thing with the blockbuster thing and I think everybody wants that combination.
Jacqueline Emerson (Foxface): That makes me so sad. I'm sorry, I can't move on yet. I'm still in mourning. I don't know that anyone else could bring it to life the way that he did.
Alexander Ludwig (Cato): One thing about Gary is, he can do everyone's job better than you can. It's an honor working with such a talented director. He is an unbelievable guy and an actor's director, which is amazing. Nobody could really do what Gary did. I honestly believe that 100 percent.
Dayo even suggested David Fincher and Darren Aronofsky for Catching Fire… which trust us, would be totally ah-may-zing! But… we're not placing any bets on either of those ideas happening!
Hopefully the next director won't polarize audiences, and hopefully he or she will stay on board… lest we encounter another Twilight comparison!
