'Catching Fire' casting: Jena Malone in talks to play Johanna Mason
Is the 'Sucker Punch' and 'Hatfields & McCoys' star right for the role?
One of the biggest pieces of the "Catching Fire" casting puzzle is falling into place. The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Jena Malone is in early negotiations to play champion Johanna Mason in the "Hunger Games" sequel.
Mason is a key character in "Catching Fire" whose cutting comments and aggressive personality don't always rub fellow champ Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) the right way. The role is one of the most important casting decisions new director Francis Lawrence has to make, along with Plutarch Heavensbee and Finnick Odair. (Both roles are still to be determined, though there have been reports Philip Seymour Hoffman was offered the part of Plutarch.)

If Malone doesn't fit "Hunger Games" fans ideal for Johanna, they've got a long time to get used to it. "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" isn't due for release until November 22, 2013.
