Hunger games is going to be turned into a movie, but no one yet has been cast. So I still have time to imagine who my ideal cast would be. Entertainment weekly is also playing the same game, but I don't agree with the majority of their picks.
1) Katniss - so tough, this casting. She has to be young, but tough, and intelligent and wise beyond her years. I'm thinking of Saoirse Ronan. I loved her in Atonement and I do think she has the wise beyond her years thing going.
2) Peeta- Ok, bear with me on this, but I see Cory Monteith in here. I realize this is slightly crazy, but based on the story about Glee in rolling stone, I think this kid might be able to act and he has that slightly innocent, blank faced impression that makes Katniss underestimate Peeta.
3) Gale - Armie Hammer. From the Social network.
4) Prim - Elle Fanning.
5) Haymitch - here is where I really agree with EW - who suggested Robert Downey Jr.
And Eileen, while reading Don't kill the messenger, I had pictured Emily Blunt in the role, I'd be curious to know who you would cast.
Anyone else want to cast some books?
