Unlike Panem’s reaping, candidates are fighting to get into the arena for the big screen adaptation of Suzanne Collins’ “Hunger Games.” In fact, it seems each week a new actress’ name is thrown into the mix to play determined heroine Katniss Everdeen.
The early fan favorite for the role was “Skins” actress Kaya Scodelario, who according to a recent report has yet to talk with Lionsgate about the part. “Kick-Ass” star Chloe Moretz was another name bounced around late last year (though many have said she’s too young for the role). We’ve weighed in with our favorites more than once: first “Vampire Diaries” star Malese Jow and “Eclipse” newbie Jodelle Ferland. More recently, up-and-comer Hailee Steinfeld caught our eye with her gripping performance in “True Grit.” And we couldn’t forget “Winter’s Bone” actress (and “Jersey Shore” fan) Jennifer Lawrence and Disney darling Alyson Stoner who recently tweeted her interest. Plus, there’s always Emily Blunt (just kidding!).
As a casting announcement inches ever closer, we want to know: Who do you hope represents District 12? Vote in our poll after the jump! And, as always, if we didn’t include your favorite, tell us in the comments section.
