Career[edit]

In 2012, Quaid made his film debut as Marvel in the film The Hunger Games.[3] In an interview, Quaid explained how he auditioned for the role: "We had torrential downpours, flooding, scorching heat and then a bear would wander onto the set. But it was an amazing bonding experience. We definitely all had a great story to tell about what we did on our summer vacation." He also said that he was warned of a backlash from fans because of his character's dastardly acts: "When I got cast, I was told that people would be spitting on me in the streets."

In 2013, Quaid once again reprised his character, Marvel for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire in a cameo appearance. Quaid is asking fans to help him fund his new film, Roadies, by making donations on the crowdsourcing website Indiegogo.[4]
