Jennifer Lawrence: 'Hunger Games' Lead?

Jennifer Lawrence is close to sealing the deal to star in Hunger Games, Variety reports.

The 20-year-old Oscar-nominated actress has been tapped to play Katniss, “a young woman [who] joins a survival contest to save her community,” in the film based on Suzanne Collins‘ popular books.

Hailee Steinfeld and Abigail Breslin were also reportedly being considered for the role in the film.

Jennifer can next be seen on the big screen in X-Men: First Class, which hits theaters June 3.

    @Commenter: Your kidding me right? I’m NOT hating on this girl at all because I don’t know her but I do find her very pretty but this girl does NOT have ASian looking eyes AT ALL.

    WHat! this is not AT ALL how i pictured KAtniss. i thought she would have brown hair, olive skin. and this person looks quite old for a 16 yr old. she is too blonde, and does not remind me of a kid, AT ALL. let alone someone who would survive the hunger games. if they do pick her, i hope they do major hair work, body work, (lol) or, in a MUCH better option, pick a different person!!

    Oh, please, don’t!!!!!
    Katniss was supposed to be an atletic, brunet, olive-skinned girl, not a blondy with soooo many curves that is able to perform Mystique in X-men first class.
    I think Saoirse Ronan would be perfect for the rol

    that ***** is not even close to Katniss. I’d love to see Troian from Pretty Little Liars as Katniss

    I like her but she really is a bad choice.
    why do studios always cast weird people for book adaptions?
    at least she is a good actress… unlike some vampire girl

    No. She’s not Katniss. Haille or Abigail would be much better choice.

    Emma Watson might be a brilliant choice because of her frame. She can def play Katniss. I will reserve judgment however.
