Get ready Panem, here's your Katniss!


The leading actress of the upcoming Hunger Games movie has finally been chosen! The lucky girl is Jennifer Lawrence, best known for her role in The Winter's Bone, which also got her an Oscar nomination. I haven't yet seen the film, but I believe Jennifer has got the talent to bring the strong, hardened-by-life Katniss alive on the screen. And quite honestly, I'm just really happy Effy from Skins wasn't chosen. So I'm all thumbs up for this choice! She may be 20, while Katniss is 16, but this won't be the first time an actor is older than their character. This is not a John Travolta/Grease situation, after all.

Next, I'm anxiously waiting for news about who will play the male lead, Peeta. I'm a huge Peeta fan and the casting is only a matter of life and death for me. I NEED TO LIKE HIM. Just let it not be Alex Pettyfer.

I will flip out if they will do the "Pattinson", in other words hire a pretty-boy who has absolutely NO acting skills.

Exactly! Besides, Peeta isn't supposed to be TOO pretty. He just has to be so damn lovable that everyone will fall for him. Gale is more like the pretty-boy. But anyway, it looks quite good, as they chose Lawrence as Katniss. I want to trust that they know what they're doing.
