Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen

On her hair: "I think I just have to stay tan. Or I'll look like the girl from The Ring."

What about training? The Oscar nominee has become adept at archery, track work, stunt drills, and yoga. She was also told to became lean, not "gaunt," in order to begin shooting this week in North Carolina.

On her Hunger Games outfit: "I want to make sure I can run and jump and climb. I've been driving [the costume designers] crazy with the boots: You have to fix this here, you have to make it lighter here, you have to open it up here.' The dresses I don't care about. Just put them on me. It's like Oscar season again."

I like the characters i imagined them kinda maybe a little bit different but i really can't describe how they look like in my head it was good they got older characters because i couldn't imagine them younger because they are mature. I couldn't imagine like a 17 16 year old bay face like justin beiber being gale or peeta especially katniss

Hey #1 Hunger Games Fan, they choose older actors/actresses for a reason. And Josh Hutcherson is not that much older than Peeta should be. Also Liam and Jennifer are not that much older than Gale and Katniss. Also would you mind learning to spell ridiculous?
PS: I absolutely love the cast. All great actors/actresses and I expect this to be a great movie

I pictured her with dark dark hair and olive skin, but i'm totally fine with the actress they chose to portray her..Its the content that matters

I like the cast. Katniss looks like I imagined her. I always imagined her older because her personality in the books were so mature. Looks good can't wait for the movies! Don't forget about the thing called artistic License. Sometimes it's good when the movies aren't word for word taken from the book. :)
