Jennifer Lawrence Cast as Katniss
We now interrupt our SXSW coverage to bring you the very important news that the role of Katniss (from The Hunger Games) has finally been cast. Official word has come that Jennifer Lawrence will play the butt-kicking heroine of the trilogy.
Though Lawrence was not my first choice (that honor goes to Hailee Steinfeld) I think she is a fantastic actress, and likely will do a great job. My only real concern is her age. Lawrence is 20, and if she does the whole trilogy, she will be around 26 during the third movie.
We’ve all been waiting a long time for this news. What do you think of this casting news?
