It’s Official – Jena Malone Is Johanna Mason In Catching Fire
May the Odds Be Ever in Your Favor
Wonder no longer, Lionsgate has made their decision on who will play District 7 tribute Johanna Mason in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. It’s Jena Malone! Hit the jump for details including how Josh Hutcherson might have spilled the beans!
We heard rumblings around town at the beginning of the month that Malone would likely be cast in the role but now it’s official.
The actress recently starred in in the History Channel’s Emmy mini-series Hatfields & McCoys but you probably also know her work from Sucker Punch, Donnie Darko, or my personal favorite, Contact. She’ll play Johanna, the tribute from lumber-intensive District 7. She’s one of the youngest to be entered into the Quarter Quell and isn’t very shy when it comes to nudity.
Malone joins two other confirmed cast members, Philip Seymour Hoffman as Plutarch Heavensbee and Amanda Plummer as Wiress. Peeta, aka Hutcherson, spoke about recent casting news at the Teen Choice Awards last night, before the Mason role was announced by the studio.
“I’m super excited,” said Hutcherson. “I think Jena Malone is fantastic. Amanda Plummer is fantastic. I think also Philip Seymour Hoffman is one of my favorite actors ever.”
You’ll be able to see Malone in spikey-haired action in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire on November 22, 2013.
