So I have been checking for news for The Hunger Games movie for awhile now and was happy to find out that Jennifer Lawrence has been cast as Katniss.
I first heard of her when she was nominated for an Oscar for Winter's Bone. And there was the rumour that she was the front runner for the role so I looked her up.
And I have to get this out. I know there have been so many haters as to how she looks (blonde and blue eyed and too 'old'). As opposed to Katniss who is supposed to have dark hair, grey eyes and olive toned skin. Plus she's meant to be small and only 16.
But, I trust Gary Ross the director and Suzanne Collins herself was at each audition and she completely praises Jennifer. She herself said she would rather someone a little older than someone too young (she has to incite a rebellion after all) I much rather have someone who doesn't quite have the looks but can carry the character instead of someone who looks like her but only a so so actress.
Plus characters and stories from book to screen is different. You can't always follow a book exactly. I haven't seen Winter's Bone yet but from the trailer she has a very Katniss attitude and the accent for it. I think she will be brilliant!
Anyway, sorry this was a ranty post and I know everyone has their own opinion so that is just mine :) I mean no offense to anyway who thinks differently.
A mock movie poster.
This was made by the same person (that's why the same pic was used). Hunter Parrish as Peeta. (I think he has a very 'Peeta' look about him)
And I just think this is great. I love that Mockingjay.
Well, let me know what you think? (If you care of course haaa) I cannot wait to hear more about the movie and seeing who else they cast.
