katniss is cast.

March 18, 2011

We’ve been waiting for this.


They cast Katniss for The Hunger Games movie!!

I was hoping they would cast Kaya Scoledario:


I mean she’s PERFECT.

But they cast Jennifer Lawrence.


There are a few things that concern me about Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss:

1.) she’s 20

2.) she’s blonde

3.) too mature looking for Katniss

The good thing is she’s an “unknown”, I don’t know how good of an actor she is, though.

I know they can (and probably will) dye her hair dark for the movie and that’s nice. But I really was hoping they’d pick someone closer to Katniss’ age, you know?

What I do know is that I hope they get Alex Pettyfer for Peeta.


At first I thought he was a little too old, mature looking to play Peeta. But now that Katniss is 20, I think he’s just fine for the part!

Q. What are your thoughts? Are you happy with the casting for Katniss?

    I admit that I was voting for Kaya Scoledario myself, but hopefully they saw just cause for making that choice. Maybe there is something to making her a little older that we just don’t see? Maybe that way it is more realistic to have Alex Pettyfer as Peeta. We shall have to wait and see! All I know is I will be there for opening night and I am so hoping to not be terribly disappointed!

    TOTALLY agree with you. the first girl is PERFECT and she… has curves. Katniss in my head does not.
    kind of disappointing but then again I would love anyone in the role as long as they make a movie.
    Alex pettifer. yesss!

    Hi there,
    Thanks so much for your comment on my blog 🙂 I agree I think Jenifer is a tad old but I think she’ll do well as katniss.. her role in winters bone was a tuff one and she did remarkable in that so i think she’ll do well 🙂

    Oh and i’m SO SOS SOSOSOSOSO hopeing Alex gets to play Peeta! Id die! he just seems so perfect of the part! 😀
