katniss

dear jennifer lawrence,


so it isn't news that you have been cast as katniss in the hunger games movie. i was hesitant when i found out, you certainly didn't look the part, but as we all know, just because you look like the character, doesn't mean you can play the part right, or even act (*cough* kristen stewart)




a lot of the HG fan forums said that i would feel different after i saw you in "winter's bone". so i watched it. and while i am not a huge fan of this movie, (or your constant montone, too many flash backs of bella), but there were certain aspects of it made me realize you should be able to pull it off playing katniss.

in fact, there were A LOT of similarities between the 2 stories



a poor small town that is dreary and gray all the time? check

a mother that is so depressed she is in a comatose state? check

having to grow up too soon to care for your family? check

able to hunt, kill and clean an animal? check



the only reason difference in the 2 were the fathers of the main characters......


that and the whole televised children killing each other thing.


i guess what i am saying is, after seeing you in winters bone,

i am a little more excited for next march when Hunger Games comes out.


now i just have to get over who they cast as peeta....

I'm not as excited for these movies as I should be. The casting just seems all wrong. The guy they chose for Peeta? No. No. No.

I've yet to see Winter's Bone. Hopefully soon...

I've heard the same, so I am hoping she does the part justice.

I haven't heard about the rest of the cast.
