The newest issue of Entertainment Weekly had a great article about the cast of the Hunger Games movie. There was a lot of controversy when Jennifer Lawrence was picked to play Katniss Everdeen. Some people thought she was too blond, too old or too attractive to play Katniss. But it seems that the contoversy has somewhat died down, especially after author Suzanne Collins said she was happy with the pick of Lawrence. Some of the other big names that will appear in the movie are Woody Harrelson as Haymitch Abernathy, Elizabeth Banks as Effie Trinket, and Josh Hutcherson as Peeta Mellark.
What do you think of the casting for the movie? Have you read the Hunger Games series? Are you looking for something to fill the void til the movie comes out? You might want to try reading another book with a strong female protaganist or maybe something for reluctant readers who loved the Hunger Games. Either one will help you while you anticipate the movie’s release next year!
