The Hunger Games Movie Actor
Actress Jennifer Lawrence has been cast to play this lead role in the film adaptation to be released in 2012. Jennifer’s pivotal role came in last year’s film Winter’s Bone in which she was nominated for an Oscar. As a relative newcomer, despite her immediate success, Jennifer will be heavily scrutinized by her portrayal of this fan favorite character, Katniss Everdeen.
