"YOU Cast THE HUNGER GAMES"...Does E.W. Read My Blog?

It's very egotistical of me to think that, but it could happen...right? After coming across this article in Entertainment Weekly, I was pleasantly surprised to find many of the actors and actresses that we've been discussing (errrr, DEBATING! ) gracing the pages of my favorite magazine. For a chance to vote on your pick, click on the picture below. The article is VERY interesting for those of you who are as invested in this series as much as I am!
According to Entertainment Weekly, here are their top contenders for the main roles in the flilm...


~KATNISS~

WINNER!
Kaya Scodelario (39% of the vote)

Alli Shearmur from Lionsgate is listening to the fans and is quoted in the article as saying that "some of the actresses who fans have identified as the best potential Katniss are being considered." Smart move,Lionsgate! Movie makers should know how opinionated and passionate fans of a book can be when their beloved characters are going to be projected onto the big screen. Here's to hoping they make the right choice...we can't find out the official cast list soon enough!

  1. Kristen Chenoweth for Effie! She would be perfect!
    I am not sure I was picturing those two for Haymitch, but I vote Robert Downey, Jr over Hugh Laurie.

  2. Kaya is perfect for katniss and for peeta it should be Lucas Till.

  3. I Love that Hugh Laurie as Haymich, total perfection on this casting list!

  4. I kind of like Emma Watson as Katniss. She is twenty, but has a young face and a great intensity. She'd have to darken her hair and skin a bit, but I think she'd be awesome.

  5. I like this cast. I think the two Katniss's or okay and the first Peeta. I hate. I really like Alex. I think the rest of the cast is awesome

  6. yes. Kaya ftw!
    but
    Alex Pettyfer as Peeta has the more serious face for the head-over-heels-i-will-love-you-forever kinda guy
    I'm not sure about the 2 choices for Gale but I'm siding with Drew based on looks. He kinda has to look like Katniss.
    i'm expecting a lot from this movie :> loved the book

  7. Peeta Mellark Shoukd Be Played By Max Thieriot, And Gale Hawthorne Should Be Played By Aaron Johnson. Hugh Laurie Is A Good Choice For Haymitch Tho. Make Sure He Acts Drunk! xD

  9. eww. i prefer Alex Pettyfer than Hunter Parrish.. btw. the GALEs are both hot! whoo.. i'm really excited.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Gale should be played as Sean Faris, no doubt about it. As for Peeta, Hunter Parrish will do quite well. Kaya Scodelario is a great choice for Katniss.

  11. I think Johnny Depp should be Haymitch!

  12. I think Alex should have won and Drew should have won. Drew even has the eyes.

  13. I agree and like all the choices. most of them I think are spot on except for Peeta...although they are good picks I think Austin Butler would be a better fit for the part...but thats my opinion(he just seemed to come to mind when i read the books) :)

  14. Katniss should definitely be Kaya!!! Love it Peeta should be Alex- my heart melts whenever I see his pic! I love all of this!!!!! Effie better be Kristen!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  15. I really think Drew Roy should play Gale. And Alex Pettyfer as Peeta

    ReplyDelete
  16. I'd prefer nobodies, actually. I don't see any of these people fitting in with characters of my favorite series. Maybe they should gather some fresh faces?

    ReplyDelete
  17. peeta and Gale are soo hot!!!! i love it, cant wait to see the movie
    eep :D

    ReplyDelete
  18. I dont really agree with Kaya.. I think she looks too old personally. I like Seychelle Gabriel or a complete unknown - so the fans can feel like the actors their own, like the twilight actors

    ReplyDelete
  19. Eh, neither of the choices for Katniss impress me. They're too tough looking. Katniss is tough but she also has a softness and a beauty to her that even she doesn't realise is there.

    Lucy Hale would be 100 times better.

  20. I like Alexandra Daddario as Katniss Everdeen. :) Ugh the choices for Peeta are ugly

    ReplyDelete
  21. I love these choices! But shouldn't Katniss and Gale have darker skin colors? Didn't the book describe them as olive-skinned and dark-haired?

    ReplyDelete
  22. quite frankly,
    im pleased with Peeta,Gale,&Haymitch.
    i think that Effie should've been that blonde reporter on Harry Potter 5.& that they really should've picked someone more rougher as Katniss.cant wait to see the movie though!(:

    ReplyDelete
  23. Kaya should definitely be Katniss, my favourite! :D I'm not sure the choices for Peeta are Peeta D: In fact, one of them looks more like Gale lol. Very un-Peeta.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Danielle Chuchran is my preference for Katniss :D and I think Hunter Parrish and Gaspard are perfect for the roles! Just how pictured them in the trilogy:):)
