Jessup Diggs is the male tribute from District 12. At first, he and Lucy stay together. Of course, the Hunger Games is a free-for-all, and their contest must come down to a single victor. Despite this, Lucy attempts to help him early in the games. Nick Benson played Jessup in the film, and he looks like the character described in the book, save for the nature of his hair.
In the book, Jessup has “a fringe of black hair,” which doesn’t describe Benson’s look in the film, which has him sporting a short afro. Jessup works in the mines, and despite the general scarcity of good food, he builds up an impressive physique. This does apply to Benson, who has an impressive physique and stands 6′ 1″ tall, according to his IMDb page.
As described in the book: “A boy with a fringe of black hair plastered down on his prominent forehead. As District 12 tributes went, he was a fine specimen, bigger than average and strong-looking.”
Gamemakers’ accuracy score: 8/10 – Benson’s portrayal of Jessup is close to his character’s description in the book, but he loses points for his different hairstyle.
