Dayo Okeniyi, who plays Thresh in the epic trilogy "The Hunger Games," dropped by our studios to give us a little information of his role in the movie and what it was like on set.

He remembers when that incredible phone call came in to let him know he got the part, and he immediately called his family. His dad, obviously a smart man, immediately asked if he would be getting paid for this job. Dayo's impression of his dad brought many laughs in the studio.

We were also excited to hear about all the training he had to go through to play Thresh. From Parkour to swordsplay, Dayo is now a pro at everything the movie threw at him.

He was also very complimentary of the beautiful and talented Jennifer Lawrence. It seems everyone that works with her has nothing but good things to say - we can't wait to meet her!

We know we were first in line at the midnight screenings for "The Hunger Games." Have you guys gone out and seen it yet?
