‘Catching Fire’ Still One

Playing up the fans’ excitement for the upcoming sequel to The Hunger Games, the production company is currently using their excitement to have them unlock stills from the film. All that needs to be done is tweet #HungerGamesExplorer for a new still to be revealed.

The first still shows Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) and her little sister, Prim (Willow Shields) looking sad in what could be assumed to be their depressingly mundane home of District 12.

Catching Fire is set to be released on November 22nd with its first official trailer scheduled to air during the MTV Movie Awards.

Jay-Z Turns Sport Agent

Jay-Z is considered one of the biggest MCs in the game, but the fact is that his business skills trump even that. ESPN has reported that Hova will now be launching his own sports agency, Roc Nation Sports that will work in conjunction with high-powered talent agency, Creative Artists Agency(CAA). His first official client is Yankees’ All-Star second baseman, Robinson Cano.

Jay-Z swooped in at a great time because Cano had recently fired his agent, Scott Boras. “At this point in my career, I am ready to take a more active role in my endeavors both on and off the field,” Cano said in a statement. “I am confident that the pairing of Roc Nation Sports and CAA Sports will be essential in helping me accomplish my short- & long-term goals,” he continued.

ESPN  also reports that, “sources say Jay-Z himself is planning to be a certified agent, first in baseball and eventually in basketball and football. In order to represent clients in basketball, he would have to give up his small share of the Brooklyn Nets” which is kind of weird because Jay-Z is part ownership of the team.

On his blog, the mogul writes, “because of my love of sports, it was a natural progression to form a company where we can help top athletes in various sports the same way we have been helping artists in the music industry for years.”
