We've been musing about the casting for "The Hunger Games" seemingly since even before "The Hunger Games" was written. Now, some of the actual contenders for the cast of "The Hunger Games" are sharing their thoughts, too.

MTV News recently interviewed Hailee Steinfeld, the amazing young actress who managed to steal "True Grit" from even the Coen Brothers themselves. The topic of her being rumored for the much sought-after role of Katniss Everdeen in "The Hunger Games" came up, and she was all smiles.

"That would definitely be an honor," she said, with more than a hint of excitement in her eyes at the prospect of being involved in the director Gary Ross' adaptation of Suzanne Collins' sci-fi novel.

But has she actually read the books, and if so, what did she think of them? Watch the entire interview segment over at MTV News.
