    Wow, I’m really not feeling the casting for this latest movie. Except for Philip Seymour Hoffman. The rest are pretty bland.

    Okay, look- no one give a crap. Stop posting!

    I actually don’t mind the casting thus far. As long as they can act I am totally fine with the actors being employed.

    I think this is great casting. Jena is a very good actress. I am glad they are going for quality actors in this series (Jen Lawrence, PSH, Jena).

    Since when was Sam Claflin confirmed as Finnick? Still only a rumour JJ. People reporting the role as already cast can fack up the whole casting process. So don’t perpetuate rumours. We all know this was Jena Malone’s strategy.

    Good choice. I like Jena a lot. I always thought she would have made a better Bella in Twilight. But being in the Hunger Games is infinitely better.
