Casting Scoop – Jena Malone to Play Johanna Mason

I recently posted that the Stepmom and Sucker Punch star Jena Malone was being considered for the role of Johanna Mason in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. Well it has now been confirmed that Malone has booked this major role. Malone is also starring in NBC’s new TV series, 1600 Penn, so she will have to balance her shooting schedule between the two projects. The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is scheduled to start filming in late September and it is going to hit theaters November 22, 2013.

Are you looking forward to seeing Malone play Johanna Mason? Do you think she was the right choice for the role?

    I wouldn’t say necessarily go so far as to say she’s the right choice in my mind, but I think they could’ve done worse (and no one better comes to mind at the moment).

      Personally, I think that she is a great choice. Jena is a strong actress and I think she will be able to pull off this role very nicely! 🙂 I agree though, they could have done a lot worse with the casting. 😉 Thanks for your input and taking a look at my blog! 🙂
