I know I’m the last person on the internet to talk about the casting of Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen, but I was in Amish country.


Jennifer Lawrence will be Katniss in the upcoming Hunger Games movie! And it has a release date: March 23, 2012. Just a year to wait. A year from this Wednesday. I can do that.

I think she’s a killer choice, so excited. Katniss is described as darker skinned and dark haired, more Mediterranean I thought. But they’ll work it out for her. I started watching Winter’s Bone on a flight recently, but we landed before I could finish. She was mind-blowing, I can absolutely see her as Katniss.  The first book is far and away my favorite of the 3. And that reminds me, I never posted about reading the other two. I’ll have to get on that soon. And finish Winter’s Bone.
