So you may have heard. About the casting. You know, for The Hunger Games movie. It kind of sucks. And by kind of I mean HOLY FREAKING BANANAS GARY ROSS!!!! HAVE YOU BEEN GETTING LOOPED WITH HAYMITCH??! !
I mean, I’m sure these are perfectly nice guys and all, but all I can say is no. And also…no.
Our new Gale dated Miley Cyrus. From the Disney Channel! And he was in a film adaptation of a Nicholas Sparks novel. The Sparkster!!! (say it isn’t so).
And Peeta. Oh the horrors of Peeta. Even though I remain a firmly Team Gale kind of girl I feel bad about Peeta. Maybe blonde hair will help? They are going to dye his hair, right? Of course, that always turns out lovely. Take for instance the gem that was the Twilight movie.
Yeah, looking forward to that.
So to recap, here is the cast of the film as of today:
Jennifer Lawrence from Winter’s Bone will probably be amazing. I have no issue with this casting.
Josh Hutcherson from The Kids Are Alright. This is not our tall, blonde, delicate bakery boy, but we’ll try to keep an open mind.
Liam Hemsworth of the roadkill that is anything related to Nicholas Sparks. But hey, Ryan Gosling turned out pretty good so we’ll give him a chance. I mean, do we really have a choice?
I WILL be totally fair and keep an open mind about this though, I promise. I mean, remember when everyone hated the casting of Robert Pattinson as Edward Cullen and they like, sent him death threats and stuff (crazay)? But then the Twilight movies came out everyone went all ga ga and now Pattinson is a major panty magnet. So maybe all will be well.
Still, just as a reminder, here’s who we were hoping for. Keeping our fingers crossed on Haymitch, Effie and Cinna.
