Hunger Games Casting: Take 1
I don't know about you, but I'm SUPER excited for the Hunger Games trilogy to be made into movies. However, I'm also SO NERVOUS about it! I mean, how many books has Hollywood really screwed up when they made them into movies? I'm sure we can all name a few. There have been so many rumors about the casting of Katniss and Peeta...
The first casting has officially taken place! It was announced today that Jennifer Lawrence will play the much-coveted role of Katniss!
I think now the bigger question turns to Peeta. They can't cast too young on this one or they'll make Jennifer's age obvious. So many rumors abound on who will win the role. I'm strongly in the "not-Alex-Pettyfer" camp (I don't think he fits).
What are your thoughts? Was Jennifer the right Katniss choice? Who is your pick for Peeta? Any thoughts on your other favorite characters?
(I'll start: A long time ago I heard a rumor that Hugh Laurie of House fame might have a stab at the part of Haymitch. Perfect, right? Now it's your turn...)
