Yep, another day and another casting rumor, but the latest word is that Mia Wasikowska and Zoe Aggeliki are in Catching Fire Casting talks and have auditioned for the role of Johanna Mason.
From The Playlist:
Sources close to the project tell The Playlist that Mia Wasikowska and model/actress Zoe Aggeliki are in the mix for Johanna Mason. The character becomes a strong ally with Katniss and Peeta during the 75th Hunger Games, but has a testy relationship with Katniss who likens her to an older sister who hates you. She’s a fierce competitor, who has no family and friends left in District 7 where she hails, with her weapon of choice being an axe. Director Francis Lawrence is keen on finding the right actress to fit the part is looking at both big names and lesser known talents.
Zoe is something of a new face, but she will be seen in the new Percy Jackson film “Sea Monsters” which will also star Hunger Games actress Leven Rambin and the amazing Stanley Tucci. Mia, on the other hand has had a number of roles including Alice in Wonderland. She also played played Josh Hutcherson’s sister in The Kids Are Alright.
So what do you think? Would either of them make a good Johanna?
