Jena Malone To Fill Johanna Mason’s Shoes In ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’

Jena Malone, one of my favorite indie actresses, has a confirmed place in the sequel to Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson’s The Hunger Games, which made over $152 million dollars in its opening weekend.

She is set to play the complicated former victor Johanna Mason who, with Katniss, Peeta and the still not-cast Finnick Odair, is thrust into the 75th Hunger Games where former winners are chosen to fight for their lives again.

Many websites would have you believe that Malone is best known for her “work” in Zack Snyder’s disastrous Sucker Punch… 

She is in fact a very skilled actress who played small but memorable roles in Into The Wild, The Ballad Of Jack And Rose, Cold Mountain, and The Messenger plus larger ones in Saved!Donnie Darko and The Ruins.

Philip Seymour Hoffman has been offered the part of gamekeeper Plutarch Heavensbee but has not taken it yet. No word on Beetee, Mags or Wiress.
