@anon: Angie REALLY is a blonde. Naturally she has blonde hair.

@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

OMG! NO, NO, NO! She is NOT right for this part. What are they thinking???? What a letdown!

The girl has hooded eyes. Very Asian eyes to me.

who cares, she can die her hair and get a tan! at least shes pretty and we wont cringe looking at her, like i would with abigail..

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

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO GOD PLEASE NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!

MALESE JOW FTW.

YES YES YES I LOVE YOU JENNIFER !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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.

Katniss was supposed to be an athletic, brunet, olive-skinned girl, not a bloody with soooo many curves that is able to perform Mystique in X-men first class.
I think Saoirse Ronan would be perfect for the role.
