With a handful of potential Finnick Odairs meeting with “Hunger Games: Catching Fire” producer Nina Jacobson this week, it’s time to talk about another major role in the upcoming sequel: Johanna Mason.
Johanna is a former Hunger Games champion forced to reenter the arena for the Quarter Quell games, alongside Finnick, Katniss, and Peeta. As a trusted ally of Katniss, Johanna features heavily in both “Catching Fire” and the trilogy’s conclusion, “Mockingjay.”
Now, Indiewire reports that director Francis Lawrence is considering two actresses for the part. First there’s Mia Wasikowska, best known for her role as Alice in “Alice in Wonderland” and for playing Josh Hutcherson’s older sister in “The Kids Are All Right.” Lawrence is also interested in model Zoe Aggeliki, a relative unknown who will appear in “R.I.P.D.” and “Percy Jackson: Sea Of Monsters.”
