The Hunger Games: Catching Fire: Who Will Play Johanna Mason??

| Filed under: Film FlickersHunger Games

Johanna Mason

Okay, honesty time.

We have been SO distracted by the casting of hawtie with a body Finnick Odair, we've been TOTALLY forgetting about the equally as important new character… Johanna Mason!

Now that we've realized our painful mistake: Here's an update on who will play the smelliest girl in Panem!

A The Hunger Games: Catching Fire insider tells us that:

Mia Wasikowska and model/actress Zoe Aggeliki are in the mix for Johanna Mason. Both actresses have been in discussions for the part, but we hear that Aggeliki could sign in the coming days, however nothing is certain just yet.


Mia Wasikowska, is no A-lister, but she has been in tonz of stuff including: Albert Nobbs, Alice in Wonderland and The Kids Are All Right.

Zoe, is a pretty much totally unknown who recently landed a role in Percy Jackson: Sea Of Monsters.

We vote Miz — but only cause we love her and we haven't seen Zoe in anything!

Who do U think should ally with Katniss and Peeta during the 75th Hunger Games?

    What happened to Kristen Bell? She would be great. She can do snarky aka 'Verionica Mars”. These girls look to young for Johanna.

    Mila Kunis

    Mia is too fragile and sweet to be Johanna.

    Should be Mila Kunis or Naya Rivera - girls with bite.

    The catastrophical casting on film will drag the whole franchise down.

  6. 6

    I agree with Perez - definitely Miz! I LOVED Le Miz on Broadway and I think it would be an excellent choice for this role!

    Kristen Bell. No contest.

    These girls are both too young to play that character. That Mia girl though, her features are fitting for the character, but not strong enough. I think Johanna Mason should be a more fierce actress. Someone with "bite" as mentioned.

  9. 9

    Oh!! Mila Kunis would be awesome!!

    Zoe Should play Joahnna she looks like she has an Edge. Mia is sorta busy anyway

  11. 11

    I hope it isn't either of them.

  12. 12

    Isn't Johanna supposed to be a bad ass? Neither of these girls look like they could win a hunger game.

    Naya Rivera.

    I hope neither of them play her.

    Naya Rivera should play Johanna. When i was reading Catching Fire, she was the person that i was thinking of. She is PERFECT for this role.

    Finnick should be Jared Padalecki and Johanna should be Megan Fox

    I think that Naya Rivera has exactly what it would take to play Johanna Mason. She has the snark and the sexual confidence to pull of the early Johanna who is a live wire and a bitch who knows how to play her cards right. But Naya has also proven that she has the ability to play emotional roles and can deliver a convincing performance when it comes to playing a tortured soul the way that Johanna becomes after being held captive by the Capitol. I think that Mia is a brilliant actress but she has that young and sweet look about her. I don't know if I could see her playing the part as well as I could picture Naya in it.

    Naya Rivera should play Johanna Mason…. End of.

    Mia<3 she's a good actress BUT Mila Kunis should play Johanna. She fits perfectly to Johanna's role.
    Besides, no offence, Zoe looks fake. Like a solar Barbie from the middle of nowhere (just sayin').

    PLEASE NOT MIA. anyone but her. i don't like her one bit. alice was an atrocious adaptation of the lewis carroll story. i hated it. it was so bad. and i really dont like her as an actress, nor do i think shed be fitting for johanna. on the same note i don't think naya or mila should be cast either. while i love me some mila, i think this is the chance to cast an unknown. hollywood sticks with what they know lately but if any franchise can pull off shooting someone to stardom, it's the hunger games.

    Naya Naya Naya!!!

    I can't stand Mia Wasikowska. She's cold, frigid, and always plays the same part over and over again. She never has any fun with the parts she plays. Stick to your 'young victorian repressed women' roles because that's all you can play. And have fun competing with Kiera Knightly for the same roles.

    What happened to Kristen Bell? She'd be perfect for Johanna!

  24. 24

    in my mind zoe looks more like how i picture johanna

  25. 25

    in order to never see perez's advertizement again, download the " auto block plus" add on for your firefox rowser!!!! amazing! no more adds on your computer!

    Uhm def not mia. Anyome besides her really. Shed be the worst choice. Nothing about her screams Johanna. If shes chosen ill be very upset..

  27. 27

    Would love to see Kristen Bell cast! She would be perfect plus she has been very vocal about her love of the series!

  28. Dim says – reply to this


    Mia is a fantastic actress!

  29. clarinell says – reply to this


    mila kunis

  30. 30

    Naya Rivera!

    My choice is Nathalie Paulding, hands down! Check out her video on YouTube. She looks the part and has the acting experience and accolades that the role of Johanna needs. I agree the franchise needs a strong Johanna not a celebrity and no offense but I don't think a Glee credit counts as strong consideration for a dramatic role.

    Huge fan of her works and I have confidence that she would do the part justice.

    FOR THE DOUBTERS: People need to remember that when Johanna was sent into the games, she feigned weak and innocent while a strong, ambitious tribute lived within her. And I think that resonates well with Mia. She seems like (and is) such a sweet, innocent actress but in actuality, she is wonderfully versatile.

    I say give her a chance. The casting directors must have seen something in her that they liked if they have her (supposedly) narrowed down to the bottom two.

    I disagree. The fact that Mia does look to "fragile" and "sweet" is perfect . Katniss even sayas she won her games by "convincingly portraying herself as week and helpless." Her look will make her all the more dangerous.

    I always pictured someone like Zoe Saldana or Eliza Dushku as Johanna.

  36. allana says – reply to this


    Naya rivera all the way. she is perfect. nobody else should be johanna mason. i think the catching fire people should let the fans share ideas and consider naya rivera. she even wants to be part of the movies as johanna! she's perfect.
