I Might As Well: Dream Hunger Games Cast

Dear Bloggie,
     Everyone in the world (OK, not really, but whatever) seems to have an opinion on who should be cast in the highly anticipated The Hunger Games movie. For those who have been living under a rock, The Hunger Games is a dystopian novel which follows Katniss Everdeen, a seemingly tough as nails sixteen-year-old who saves her twelve-year-old sister from having to participate in the Hunger Games (a televised competition in which children between the ages of twelve and eighteen must fight to the death, the survivor gaining wealth and eternal glory) by offering to take her place. This then sets in motion a series of events that Katniss has almost no control over but is constantly trying to find her footing in. Since this is one of my favorite books, I might as well say who I think should be cast.

Katniss Everdeen ~ Jodelle Ferland or Hailee Steinfeld

Jodelle Dressed Like Katniss For Halloween.
Can you say "hint, hint"?
  Real Age: 16
  Character Age: 16

   I know, most know Jodelle  from her part as Bree Tanner in Eclipse, but I promise you that she's actully a good actress. I know her from the assortment of horror movies she has done. Silent Hill being my favorite, but I also enjoyed the miniseries Kingdom Hospital which was based off a Stephen King book. I still was to see Case 39. She's mainly done horror parts, but I really think she can pull of Katniss.

Hailee Steinfeld

Real Age: 14
Character Age: 16

   Hailee is a relatively new actress, but her performance in True Grit is gaining A LOT of buzz. Still, even though she's become a bit on the famous side for it, it's not a defining role that would make everyone see her as it when she does another role. Katniss is. Not sure if that would be good or bad, but I still think she would make a great Katniss. The only question I have is about her age. Fourteen is a little young (I should know, I'm fourteen) to be portraying such emotions that Katniss goes through with all the war. Plus, the actors that many want to play Peeta and Gale are all over eighteen. That would be awkward if you ask me.

P.S: I also think Alexandra Daddario would do a good job. I liked her in Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief.

Peeta Mellark ~ Hunter Parrish

Oh, What Blue Eyes You Have...
Real Age: 23
Character Age: 16

Convinced You Have I?
I Knew I Would! ;)
 OK, you have to admit, he looks EXACTLY how Peeta is described. EXACTLY. OK, now his acting credits. I've never seen him on Weeds, but I have heard good things about it. I did see him in Freedom Writers (I really like this movie) and in pieces of 17 Again (I didn't like the movie, but he was good). Overall, I think he'll do a good job. Plus...Well, look this.

Gale Hawthorne ~ Gaspard Ulliel

Sexy Beast

Real Age: 26
Character Age: 18

   To be perfectly honest, I have not really found the "perfect" Gale yet. Because of that, I don't really care who they cast at this point. (AS LONG AS IT"S NOT TAYLOR LAUTNER!!!!) I will probably really care is they cast him wrong, but for now I'm whatever about it. I basically only picked Gaspard Ulliel because his name has been mentioned in people who should, and because I think he's very, very, hot. Acting wise, I don't know. I've only seen him in one move (Hannibal Rising) and I wasn't paying the most attention to his acting skills...

Primrose (Prim) Everdeen ~ Elle Fanning or Chloe Moretz or Ruby Jenrins

I'm A Big Kid Now!

Real Age: 12
Character Age: 12

   Dakota Fanning's little sister has grown up! I've never seem her in any movie (well, not in a big enough part to judge her) but she looks the part the most and if her acting skills are near her sister's, then she'll do a fine job. The trailer for her movie Somewhere looks really good. Maybe I'll get my chance to judge her acting then.

You $%@&*$%  !
Real Age: 13
Character Age: 12  

I posotivly loved her performance in Kick Ass as  tough, foul mouthed, super hero Hit Girl. Plus, she's a fan of the series who wants to be a part of it. That's always a good thing. She seems like a great actress on the brink of super stardom.

I See Dead People

Real Age: 12
Character Age: 12

   Ruby seems to be a wonderful actress, even though she has a strange resemblance to Haley Joel Osment. I heard she was in Remember Me, but since I haven't seen it I'm not sure how she was in that movie. What I do know, is how she performed in a short indie film named Zoe's Day. I love it! They have the whole thing up on IMDb. Go see it. NOW!

Haymitch Abernathy ~ Robert Downey Jr. or Hugh Laurie

Mr. Bass-Ass

Age: 45
Character Age: About 40 (Middle-Aged)

  Yeah, we all know that Robert Downey Jr. would be bad-ass as drunk and cynical Haymitch. No more explanation needed.

Age: 51
Charcter Age: About 40 (Middle-Aged)

    But oh! How Hugh Laurie would be do a great job too! Decisions, decisions.  
                                               President Coriolanus Snow ~ Alan Dale

*Sniff, Sniff* What's That Smell?
 Can It Be Blood & Roses?

Real Age: 63
Character Age: Idk

   No matter who they cast as President Snow, Alan Dale will forever be my President Snow. I know him from his part as Charles Widmore on Lost, and since the beginning I have pictured him as Snow. Your welcome to your own opinions on who looks like President Snow, just know your wrong.

Rue ~ Yara Shahidi

Age: 10
Charcter Age: 12

  I don't have anyone I definitely think looks like Rue, but this girl is as close as I can get.


               Madge Undersee ~ AnnaSophia Robb

 Age: 17
 Charcter Age:  16          

    Even though Madge isn't the biggest character, I liked her and I seem to picture her as Anna Sophia so I thought I might as well put her up.

Effie Trinket ~ Kristin Chenoweth

Age: 42
Character Age: Idk

   Like with President Snow, no matter who they cast as Effie, Kristin will always be the one in my mind.

     Well, that's all for now. I know I left out some characters, but that is mainly because I haven't found any I really like for them. Like Cinna. If I do, I'll let you guys know.

   ~ XOXO,

This is such an amazing cast- I wish they'd cast them :( Unfortunately, I ran into the "official" HG cast on the internet yesterday...blech. I like these 1000000x better. *sigh*
