Books into Movies: Hunger Games - Catching Fire (Jena Malone Offered Role)

So the speculation has (almost) ended. Who will play Johanna Mason in Catching Fire? Jena Malone has been offered the role.

Malone has the offer and is in early negotiations for the part, according to sources. 

I knew she was in the running, but Malone certainly did not come across as the top choice. Though Malone doesn't necessarily fit the picture I had of Johanna, I've seen more movies with Malone than I can count on two hands. And the girl has some serious talent. So it kind of comes down to what you would rather have. Someone who looks the part? Or someone who acts it?

What do you guys think? Are you happy with the choice? Do you think she'll take the offer? 


  1. Aww, darn. I like Jena Malone and I think she can act, but I don't think she looks the part, and I also don't think she can pull of that character. Then again, I haven't seen a whole bunch of movies with her (only 3 or 4), so I could be wrong.

    I was hoping for Kristen Bell. She LOVES the series and really wanted to play Johanna, and I could totally see her in the part. I hope that she'll play SOME role in the series before it's all over, since she loves it so much.

  2. I think Jena Malone can pull it off. I have faith in her. She's always played characters that I LOVE or HATE, and when an actor can do that, I enjoy watching them.

    1. You hit the nail right on the head, she had some roles i don't know why she took it, but her acting is always brilliant when it comes to facial expressions.
