The Hunger Games Casting ‘Underfed’ Girl

hailees


Debra Zane, who’s in charge of casting The Hunger Games, posted [Via E!] the filmmakers’ broad criteria for Katniss: She should be Caucasian, between ages 15 and 20, who could portray someone ‘underfed but strong & naturally pretty underneath her tomboyishness.’

In the books Katniss is described as having dark hair, olive skin, with gray eyes. Hailee Steinfeld is in talks to play Katniss. Who do YOU think would be best for the role?

    YES!! Hailee is the perfect Katniss. And we know she can act. I hope they don’t go too old. It would ruin the movie if someone was in there 20’s.

    KAYA SCODELARIO is perfect!!! She looks underfed but strong. And she’s really naturally pretty. Have you seen her without make up? She goes on skins all the time having the no makeup look.
