Jennifer Lawrence Confirmed as Katniss Everdeen

by at . Comments

The casting rumor has become an official reality for Jennifer Lawrence.

The Wrap reports that this Oscar nominee has been confirmed as Katniss Everdeen, the heroine at the center of Suzanne Collins' best-selling novel series. Lawrence will star in a planned film trilogy that will include The Hunger Games, Catching Fire and Mockingjay.

The Future Katniss

The role of Katniss caps what has been an incredible year for Lawrence. The 20-year was a relative unknown just a few months ago and then rose prominence in Winter's Bone.

She beat out such other young Hollywood stars as Chloe Moretz, Lyndsy Fonseca, Saoirse Ronan and Emma Roberts for the part.

What do you think of Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss?

she sucks! If Lionsgate have any sense left in their screwed up brains, they will realize she's a disaster. This is gonna end up like twilight, isn't it?

So, let me get this. A sexy, voluptuous , blond woman plays an ethnic, brown skinned, hungry, skinny child. Wow, is that lame or what? I would say that is racist at best. Just cast the real character. Why is Hollywood such a racist industry? This is bad. They need to do a better job.

I dont see her as Katniss at all. She's too tall, too old overall she's flawed. Great actress but she's not Katniss.
