We heard earlier this week that Oscar nominee Jennifer Lawrence was the front-runner to play Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games trilogy, leading the pack ahead of Hailee Steinfeld, Chloe Moretz, and Abigail Breslin. Now it sounds like the odds were ever in her favor, because The Wrap reports that Lawrence has nabbed the role of Katniss.
To be fair, we didn’t actually see Winter’s Bone, the film that landed Lawrence her Academy Award nomination, so we can’t pass judgment, but what do you guys think? he doesn’t look like Katniss, that’s for sure, but that’s what hair and makeup is for, right? And as for the other girls who were hoping for the part, we’re sure the roles of Prim, Johanna, and Foxface are still up for grabs.
