Are you ready to see a different side of Dayo? Hunger Games fans might be surprised the next time they see Dayo Okeniyi on the big screen. And this time, he won't be on the movie screen but the television screen.

Recently, Dayo told us that he just wrapped up working on ABC's upcoming pilot called Prairie Dogs.

His character on the show is total opposite of his Hunger Games character Thresh. Thresh is tough, strong and basically "the reason Katniss makes it to Catching Fire" as Dayo's Twitter says. His character on the new gig...isn't like that at all.

"Fans of the Hunger Games are going to see a different side of Dayo," he said. "You'll get to see the goofball Dayo."

We totally can't wait to see that! You know it's going to be hilarious because it also stars Harold and Kumar star Kal Penn too and was created by the people behind That '70s Show.
