Let the Kristen Bell Hunger Games campaign commence! We were ready to hand over a script as soon as we heard Bell wanted to join the Hunger Games cast; anyone who’s seen Bell’s clever, kick-ass character in Veronica Mars knows the actress could handle her bidness in whatever futuristic distopia you can throw at her.
However, it looks like Kristen is gunning for the role of Johanna Mason, former Hunger Games victor and participant in the Quarter Quells alongside Jennifer Lawrence’s Katniss. Bell’s Hunger Games note to /Films’ fans on Tuesday says it all: “Kristen Bell 4 Johanna Mason!” Kristen has referenced her love for Suzanne Collins‘ series before; Bell tweeted last summer, “I’m not just ‘a’ hunger games fan. THE hunger games fan. read both books twice.” Then again, it looks like Glee‘s Naya Rivera Hunger Games role of choice is also Johanna. You know what that means: celebrity battle to the death!
