Jennifer Lawrence was cast as Katniss. she was fantastic in Winter's Bone and nominated for an Oscar. She definitely pulled off pretty tough chick in that movie.

I was just going to post this article when I saw you started this thread.  My only complaint was her blondeness which they are fixing.  I'm so happy with this choice.  I'm also really really really glad she isn't Emma Roberts.

I definitely think she can pull off the role of Katniss.  A lot of people don't like this choice (from what I read in the comments), but I'm all for it!

That is all that matters.  Now you know it's going to be good.

Gale and Peeta have been cast.  I'm not sold on either of them yet.  Josh Hutcherson was good in The Kids Are All Right, but I can't see him as Peeta.  I haven't seen Liam Hemsworth in anything, but he doesn't look like I imagined Gale at all.

eta: I just went to IMDb and the main picture there looks a lot more like Gale than the one on the EW article.  Also, we have the same birthday.  I'm just a little older.

Oh WHOA. Didn't hear about the latest news! This movie is shaping up to look a lot different than what I had envisioned. I can see Liam Hemsworth as Gale. The other one still needs to grow on me, but I think they'll do a good job.

Oh he could totally work.  He looks all soft and squishy and I know from The Kids Are Alright that he can play moody too.  I really do have faith in this casting director.  I still don't want to get my hopes up too high about the movie though, because it might suck and then I'd be really upset.

Rue! Thresh!  I have no idea about acting ability, but they both look the parts.

District 1 - Marvel (Jack Quaid) and Glimmer (Leven Rambin)

I found these here on facebook which looks official.  I'm pretty sure Jack Quaid is the son of Meg Ryan and Dennis Quaid.

Here's the EW article about Marvel and Glimmer.

Prim has been cast - Willow Shields

And apparently Elizabeth Banks is in "serious talks" to be Effie Trinket.

I never pictured Elizabeth Banks as Effie, but I could see it.  It's sad they couldn't get Kristin Chenoweth though.  She's who I always pictured when I was reading the books.

There's a rumor that Stanley Tucci will be playing Caesar Flickerman which would be really awesome.  I just keep waiting to see who ends up playing Haymitch.

Yeah, Stanley Tucci has already been confirmed as Caesar Flickerman.

Woody Harrelson is Haymitch.

I'm dying to see who will be Cinna.

I'm so so so so happy about Woody Harrelson.  I don't even care what the rest of the cast is like.  I like the Katniss from what I've seen, and Haymitch is being done justice.  It should be a good movie.
