Casting For The Hunger Games

As like many people, I am a huge fan of The Hunger Games series. I'm sure the buzz is around the cast of who will play who for these epic films. Well as I do in my spare time, I like to look for people who would fill my imagination of the people I first loved as I read and imagined them in my books. With that being said, the casting for The Hunger Games is already done, but I still wish it was a bit different. Here is my list of people who should have been cast, due to my made up image of them.

Katniss Everdeen: Kaya Scodelario 
I imagined Katniss very pretty but naturally pretty. Kaya Scodelario would have been perfect for her role. And she's also a great actress, tall, thin, totally Katniss.

Peeta Mellark: Alex Pettyfer
I imagined Peeta, sweet, younger looking little blonde boy. This guy would have been perfect!
Gale Hawthorne: Gaspard Ulliel
This one was hard, Cause I am team Gale. One: I imagined him super hot. Two: I just loved his personality in the books. So naturally I found someone who could do both.

Haymitch Abernathy: Sean Bean
I imagined him older, and more drunk, perhaps with a slight beard. I think Sean Bean would have been a good candidate. (he also looks slightly drunk in this picture, how perfect)

Unfortunately the casting they did do isn't all that great. I'm a bit disappointed to be honest. But here is a think to the actual casting from IMDB.com.

Who do you think would make a good cast?


  1. I think I like your list better than they one they did cast--I'm not a big fan of The Hunger Games, but I still pictured the characters differently.

  2. There aren't enough words to describe how obsessed I am with The Hunger Games. Your casing is brilliant. You got Peeta and Gale dead on! I love her as Katniss.. I've never seen her before. I also thought that Lily Collins would have been a good candidate. And Im kind of excited to see Woody Harrelson play Haymitch, although I like your choice too. If only you could have come to my book club meeting this last month that we had for the Hunger Games.. It was killer!!

  3. Oh wow that sounds so fun! Yes I still haven't read Mockingjay which is sad. But I love her books!
