Close to a Katniss?

Sources today are saying that we're very close to casting Katniss for The Hunger Games movie. Various sources have been reporting that we could have the casting offer today. And who is everyone saying the role goes to?

Jennifer Lawrence is looking like the winner, but nothing is official yet, so we're still waiting to hear exactly what happens.

In other Hunger Games news, Josh Hutcherson is vying for a role. Articles I've read have him as Peeta, which maybe he could pull off, but I want Peeta blonde, so he has some hair dyeing to do!!

  2. I actually always pictured Peeta as a blond Josh Hutcherson for some reason. So that casting would be cool with me!

  5. In my mind... well, Katniss does not look like Jennifer Lawrence. :/

  6. I'm kind of sad that it seems like they're aging the characters. I get why they would but I think part of the power of the story is having young kids doing these attrocious things. Not that 18-20 year olds doing it is acceptable by any mean but it just loses something by going that route.

  8. I think the reason they're going with an older casting (and why they do it in general) is to handle the labor laws surrounding casting someone who is ACTUALLY 16. Whereas with an 18 year old, a full adult, they don't need to be concerned with limiting hours and arranging tutors, etc etc etc. So I certainly won't be shocked in the least if they go with someone who is 18+.

  9. I am not familiar with her. I haven't really paid attention to anything Lawrence was in. But, it is very exciting. I imagine Peeta as a blonde also. Thanks for the info. - Parajunkee
