Jena Malone Offered Johanna Mason in 'Catching Fire'?

Jena Malone has reportedly been offered the role of Johanna Mason in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, according to THR!

The 27-year-old Sucker Punch actress was one of a few actresses whose names have been thrown around for the part, including Mia Wasikowska and newcomer Zoe Aggeliki.

Johanna Mason is the “ax-wielding former Hunger Games winner from District 7, who aligns with Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson) in their return to the arena for an all-star death match.”

    What no no. Naya Rivera would be perfect for this role!

  • Cassie C

    not really what i imagined but i really love jena, so i don’t know.

  • sara

    I approve!

  • Sam

    I think she is great. Great actress, looks the part. She is better than most suggestions.
    I would of loved Mila Kunis or someone similar but I doubt she would do it. not too into ‘attention’.
    I hope she takes the part.

  • stefan

    well i loved her in Sucker Punch, great movie btw, so im sure she will do good.

  • jessy_girl

    kids, I think she is great for the role, I mean the suggestion like mia were great but jena already has the training thanks to sucker punch.

  • chels

    kristen bell got robbed! she would’ve been perfect.

  • fleh

    nononononono NOOOOOOOOOO!!!

  • Creed

    No im sorry. I like Jena but just.. no. I know this is a wierd reason not to want someone for a part, but she is too White. (I am white btw) I didnt imagine Johanna to be Caucasian, i assumed she was of Mixed ethnicity. After looking at pictures of Zoe Aggeliki I think she physically looks like Johanna. However, we have no clue whether or not she can in fact act.

  • Em

    I have been rooting for her for more than a year now to get the role… She will be perfect!

  • SandersGordon

    just as Mark said I can’t believe that a single mom can make $4942 in four weeks on the internet. have you seen this site link(Click on menu Home more information)

  • testing

    I’ve always liked Jenna, but I don’t like her for that part. I was hoping for somebody tough like Eliza Dushku or Michelle Rodriguez

  • Mari

    she is ugly

  • boo!

    This is may be able to believe.

  • lisa

    no way. please say no jena!! she’s ok of an actress, but she is NO Johanna. no no no no no no no no!

  • Cristina

    YES PLEASE :D She is perfect. GO JENA!

  • Nicole

    I’m suprised that there are quite a few comments about how she doesn’t match. I don’t know a lot about her but from looking at the picture she looks pretty much the i imagined her from the book! plus beeing in a movie like suckerpunch probably gave her the training in playing somebody raw and the fight-training. i’m sure she would be very good in this role!

  • Jess

    don’t like her… sorry i can see her as johanna

  • c.

    of all the people rumoured for the role, i like her the best. she’s basically exactly how i imagined johanna anyway so a+

  • shannon

    I never though of her but she would be great. I think she’ll be able to capture Johanna’s toughness. Johanna was pretty damaged and Jena plays a lot of those kinds of roles.

  • S

    I think that’s pretty good casting actually…

  • nika

    exactly how I pictured Johanna and if she’s cast then i wanna see how she deals with the the fact that Johanna walks around naked a lot, ha!

  • Arg


    Me too! I envisioned Johanna as …tan…and athletic…..

  • lmo930

    She looks like Kristen Stewart

  • Che

    Who gives a care? You still going to pay to see it.

  • Tracy

    @Creed: Totally agree. I thought she was enthic as well. I liked Zoe or Michelle R. I also could have sworn that I read she was in her 30′s and strong. This girl is to pale and skinny. NOT HAPPY at all about this.

  • Athena

    I pictured Johanna as a woman of colour to be honest.

  • year


    nope the book never state Johanna as a woman of color. It just say brown eyes and brown hair. So I don’t know why people think she’s latina or something

  • Sasha

    please no, i even don’t wanna watch it now

  • Tiffany

    I like it! :D
