Jena Malone Offered Up As Tribute Johanna Mason!

Attention, Jennifer Lawrence.

Do yourself a favor and go rent Sucker Punch. Then maybe you'll have a better idea of what you're up against come August!

The HUGE news today for all you Hunger Games fans out there is that Lionsgate has perhaps finally come to a decision about who will play the pivotal role of Johanna Mason — and we think you're going to like their choice!

According to reliable sources, Jenna Malone has been officially offered the coveted part of the spunky and snide tribute from District 7 for both the upcoming sequel, Catching Fire and the series finale, Mockingjay.

Jenna remains in early negotiations for the part, but being the smart girl that she is, we have no doubt she will sign on the dotted line very soon.

You know, we always thought she would have made a really good Bella Swan … but this part is WAY better! Jenna would've had to wait five movies to get really kick*ss. Now, she can jump right into the action!

    she's waaay too told to play Katniss! plus not as pretty

    Can I be the rude person who says she isn't sexy enough? In my head Johanna's part action-bad-ass, part sex-bomb with all the stripping and making Katniss uncomfortable… Although I haven't seen this actress since Stepmom, if she can act, good choice overall.

    I think this would be a fine choice. Cut her hair and make it spikey and leave it dark. As far as being a badass, I think Jena is a good enough actress to pull it off. People had their doubts about Jennifer and I think she was a good Katniss.

    Re: mswilde – I thought the same thing- this is nothing how I pictured Johanna. I'm bummed. Malone is ok an actress, but not for Johanna Mason! gahhh! why can't I cast this effing movie!!!

    I DO NOT APPROVE !!!!!!!

    I am upset by this casting choice. Am I the only one that felt like Johanna was Latina??? I was really picturing Naya Rivera for this role. Johanna needs to be sexy, she takes her clothes off for God's sake, and Jena is not sexy



  9. 9

    The character is supposed to be attractive. Yuck.



  10. 10

    While Jena is a pretty decent actress, when it come to quirky roles, she is totally not right for the role of Johanna. I really hope they don't cast her in the role.

    Jena Malone is perfect. have any of you watched sucker punch. Jena Malone as Rocket in sucker punch was exactly how i pictured Johanna Mason. she was sexy and bitchy and totally badass. i didnt think jen was a good casting choice for katniss at first but i grew to love her. and to all those complaining that shes too white just get over yourselves. first thresh and rue were too black now johanna is too white. skin color doesn't matter as long as they can play the part right and judging by Jenas performance in SP she sure can.

    Re: ew – wait…really?? this post is about jena playing JOHANNA.

    they would have never casted any of the more mainstream actors that people wanted for this role like naya rivera or kristen bell, because they already have the type of role that they play, and they wouldn't fit into the hunger games world. look at the people they've already cast… not as well-known actors, for main roles at least. she'll kick ass if she's anything like the primary cast for the first movie.

    I believe Naya Rivera would have been perfect! She has everything, sexy, badass and funny. :/ I wihs they would consider her.



  15. 15

    Jena is perfect!!!!!!!!! EXACTLY how i pictured Johanna..im so happy

  16. MRSMOMOA says – reply to this

    NO NO NO! Man the eff this one up too. Johanna is supposed to be ethnic light skinned black or Hispanic. I believe in one part of the book it indicates Johanna was in her mid 30's…she is supposed to be sexy, bad-ass, and confident. This girl might be able to act but she is not right for this role. She looks like a Kristen Stewart type…she could have played Bella. This is so wrong and very disappointing, I'm not excited for this movie any longer. Seriously this girl could play crazy Annie but not Johanna. I scared to death who they are going to pick for Finnick. If they effed that one up I'm affraid they might lose me in seeing this movie.

    Re: ew – she's playing Johanna not Katniss.Can't you read?

    Re: MRSMOMOA – The book never mentions her being black or hispanic. It jusy says she has dark brown eyes and dark spiky hair and is physically fit. And it never says she is in her mid-30s. It says she is in her early 20s, and Jena Malone is in her 20s, has brown eyes, dark hair, and is fit. As far as being a badass, it's called acting, she did it in Suckerpunch so she can do it here.

    I have nothing against Jena Malone, But honestly I don't think she should play this role…Naya Rivera has a some-what similar Character, She's proved to be a great actress. - Not saying that Jena Malone isn't because i do like her. - I Believe that Naya could make a Great Johanna!

    Just when i read the book i could Picture Naya Rivera. Not Jena Malone, She's not right for this role. Would i like to see her in the movie sure! but not for Johanna Mason.I just hope there not choosing her because of the racist crap -Which was REDICULOUS, and people need to grow up.- that may happen if they choose Naya.All in all thats my opinion, I hope they know what they're doing and the choice was right. I still <3 you Jena! Naya<3 Too!

    Naya Rivera for Johanna Mason!

    Re: Jenna – Agreed. It'll be nice to see Jena Malone in the movie but not as Johanna. Naya Rivera is the one whos perfect for Johanna. I still love you Jena!

    Re: MRSMOMOA – johanna was describes as dark eyes and hair. no where does it mention that she had dark skin. thats just how you pictured her. personally i think she will be perfect for the role. Also johanna was said as being in her early 20s which jena is so mate you got all of that way wrong. Jena is pretty much exactly how johanna was described in the book.

    JENA is perfect for this role. I know she'll be able to handle the mulitple complex sides to the character. We know she's a wonderful actress from previous roles, can kick ass, is the right age range. She can be sexy, bitchy and sweet. I am behind this 100%



  24. 24

    So far, all the casting choices have been perfect and I'm sure Jena Malone will be perfect, too. I trust the filmmakers to do the right thing and don't complain before anything's been filmed

    Hmmm, Johanna is a tan, brown-eyed, spikey brown hair, and a muscular frame. Jena has green eyes (easily fixed with contacts), has brown hair that she'd have to be willing to cut or wear a wig, is a STICK so she'd have to bulk up as much as possible, and is pasty pale. More so than me. She could literally be a corpse with that skin tone. But if she can do all those things, and actually pulls it off, I'll give her credit but I'm never going to be okay with her as my fave HG character. Like a lot of people have said already, she's just not sexy enough. Not even remotely attractive to pull off the sexiness that is Johanna
