Where Is Hollywood Going To Find A Young, White Underfed Actress For 'Hunger Games'?
However, the casting call requires candidates to be white, 15-20, underfed, and pretty (duh). That sounds like every actress in Hollywood, so better set up some more filters, guys. The role of Katniss is expected to be a starmaker for whoever gets the part, so speculation is rampant, but all unfounded, with the usual young Hollywood names bandied about. It's uncertain if candidates who read prior to the open call were subject to the same filters, but given Hollywood's casting history for young adult films, expect a white girl to get the gig.
For those who aren't young adults themselves or total weirdos, Hunger Games is a story of dystopian survival and is expected to be adapted as a trilogy. At least the anorexia here will serve a narrative purpose and not just be used for aesthetics like it is in Monique movies. (Movie Line)
