Early this morning, Elizabeth Banks took to her official blog to drop some comments about the newly cast actors in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, namely, Sam Claflin, Jena Malone, and Jeffrey Wright.
Sam Claflin gave me a tummy flutter in Snow White and The Huntsman so I couldn’t be happier that he’s taking on the role of Finnick Odair.
Jena Malone will play Katniss’s sarcastic frenemy Johanna Mason. She’s got grit and spunk in spades. Quote me on that.
The amazing Jeffrey Wright will play fan fave Beetee. We worked together on Oliver Stone’s W – he’s never less than perfection.
She also mentions that she will be filming in ‘fall’, and we expect – if she doesn’t already have her scenes – it to be just before or around October as also mentioned by Stanley Tucci.
