Yeah, Jennifer Lawrence is playing Katniss, Josh Hutcherson is playing Peeta, and Liam Hemsworth is playing Gale. There are some other characters of course, like Cinna whose being played by Lenny Kravitz (I'm pretty confused about that one) and it's being directed by Gary Ross. I'm literally counting the days until I can watch the movie in theaters.

drew Well, it's 9 months and a few days. But, on the bright side-it's less than a year!


Esma Asalıoğlu i'm looking to forward see it. the book was awesome i have just finished it 1 day ago and i will start to read the 2nd of it.

Yoly De Sedas I'm really really excited for this movie to come out. The books were simply amazing, but I'm a little concerned about the Liam Hemsworth as Gale choice. He just doesn't look like the Gale the book depicts :(


Becca I hope the movie will be as good as the book. But since Suzanne Collins is working together with the film studio, there is (hopefully) nothing to worry.
And I actually think that Jennifer Lawrence is no Katniss and there are a few other characters which actors simply don't fit the image I had of them. Let's see how it is going to be :)

Yumi i thought that hugh laury would've been great for haymitch but they picked another guy :( and i just looked up lenny kravitz and i'm seriously angry that they picked him for cinna. not a good fit. but if you look up liam hemsworth as gale there are people that have photoshopped him to look like gale and he's actually a pretty good fit.

Yoly De Sedas I also cannot belive AT all that Cinna will be played by Lenny Kravitz... that is just not right


Steve Chaput Certainly not how I imagine Cinna, but I'll be willing to see how Kravitz is in the role. To be honest, Donald Sutherland is about as far from the discription of President Snow as you get.


Grace ONE OF MY MOM'S FRIENDS SAYS THEY ARE GOING TO GET AN ACTOR THAT GETS ARRESTED FOR POSSESSION TO PLAY HAYMITCH! SORRY IT'S ON CAPS LOCK

thank you ! am i one of the only ones that noticed that?!?!?!??!?!?!?!?!?!?!?


Vickie I think that the movie will probably be good. I think that it is better to pick actors for more than if they look like the character.

I agree with everything except I think the actor who will play Haymitch is perfect for the role, I have seen him in other movies and he is great.


Elisabeth Oh! This is exciting! I enjoyed the book; I think it's great material for a movie :]

Yeah, check out Woody Harrelson in Natural Born Killers, Zombieland or other films. The guy can easily pull off Haymitch, although I had imagined him a bit older.


Mattie I found out that the movie wont come out for a while. I I'm so siked I really can't wait cus I want to see it so bad!!!!!!!


Mattie I am a big fan of the book and the casting for katniss is perfect when the actor wears makeup of course without she looks nothing like her!!!!!! but thats the magic of makeup but her eyes are the wrong color!!!!!!!!!!!! >:(


~*Elizabeth*~ Woody Harrelson is going to be Haymitch? Now I want to see this even more! He is an amazing actor!


BubblesTheMonkey Yay!!!!!!!!! :)

Madeline me 4 :)


Maxine i think the person who is playing katniss looks to old but exactly how i imagined her


Maigan I really hope they don't screw it up. I will cry if they do. They already have actors that don't seem to look like the characters, based on how Suzanne Collins described them...oh well I don't have control over everything, as much as I would like to...;)


Lincoln So the entire book takes place in Katniss's head...how are they going to change the perspective of the film so that her emotions are expressed in film. I think they will treat the theater audience like the audience watching from the capital...Otherwise I believe a lot of the film will be akin to Cast Away...An individual trying to survive in the arena with bursts of terror when she comes upon a tribute.

-May the odds be ever in your favor


Mattie There not going to dye petta's hair in the movie!!!!! its going to be brown!!!!!!!!! ugh...! :'(


Madeline noooooooooo!


Abigail Tong yeah, the pictures of josh's "blonde" hair is actually just brown. LET DOWN.


Ashlyn Can't wait for the movie!!!!!!!!!!!


Dillan i hop the move in not chessey


Mattie Abigail wrote: "yeah, the pictures of josh's "blonde" hair is actually just brown. LET DOWN."

i am soo... angry there making keeping his hair brown!!!!!


MizziQ I'm sad about it


Mattie yeah that too


MizziQ Haha! I thought it looked okay. I mean it didn't look NATURAL, but it did look intresting. I would have liked them to have the same hair color if they could.


Mattie yeah


Claudia okay jennifer laurence is a good actress but katniss has olive skin and is a brunet it's just wrong


Claudia why dose it have to come out in 2012???


KatieBookQueen I'm annoyed about Josh's hair too :(


Dristi Can't wait to see it in the theater!!


Madeline me too!!!


Mattie jennifer laurence is all makeup affied so she looks pretty close to the real thing


message 49: by Acey (new) - rated it 4 stars

Acey i thought jennifer lawrence is a tad bit too old to play katniss, but she's ok.

other than JL, who would've you guys wanted to play as katniss?


Mattie well I think that the lady who played jack blacks new "girlfriend" would have been perfect if she was like 15 years younger.... other than that they would haft to find younger actors to play that part but they couldn't cus it would have been to terrifying to see children die...
