Mia Wasikowska & Zoe Aggeliki Up For Important Role In The Hunger Games: Catching Fire
Real Or Not Real?
Not too long ago, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire producer Nina Jacobson told us we should probably relax about all these casting rumors we’ve been hearing (mainly the men up for the role of Finnick). Sorry lady, we’re fans. We don’t relax. The latest news is that Mia Wasikowska and Zoe Aggeliki are up for the same role. Find out who it is after the jump!
The Playlist cites anonymous sources claiming Wasikowska and Aggeliki are up for the role of Johanna Mason. Wasikowska you probably member from her work in The Kids Are All Right and Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland but Mason is fairly new. She’s done modeling in the past but has just wrapped a role in the Ryan Reynold-starring R.I.P.D.
“Both actresses have been in discussions for the part, and we hear that Aggeliki could sign in the coming days, but nothing is certain just yet,” writes The Playlist.
Johanna Mason is described in the novels as being muscular, having wide-set brown eyes, spikey brown hair, and a tan. I won’t go into detail of her role in the plot but she plays a fairly important part in the story
Jacobson has said it’s crazy to see how way ahead fans are. “We’ve not narrowed things down by any means. It’s funny to see how things can take on a life of their own,” she said. “It means something that people can see [an actor] in that light, so you know [the actor] will be accepted by a lot of people, on the one hand. On the other hand, you have to kind of ignore it. You have to just sort of act like you’re sitting in a room and you want to just pick the person who gives the best audition and looks and feels most like the part.”
But we’ve also heard recently that Philip Seymour Hoffman may be taking on the role of Plutarch Heavensbee (which I sincerely hope is true).
Could you see either of these two in the role?
