Jena Malone Gets Johanna Mason Role in Catching Fire

Written by Alexander Tucker   // 07/03/2012

Jena MaloneThe Search for Johanna Mason in The Hunger Games Sequel, “Catching Fire”, is now over! No, it won’t be Mia Wasikowska or model/actress Zoe Aggeliki, the coveted role has gone to Sucker Punch actress Jena Malone. Happy 4th of July, Jena Malone, you will now become a teen and pre-teen house hold name.


The role of Jena Mallone is key and will be reprised in the trilogy’s third installment, Mockingjay. If you haven’t read the books, here is some info on Miss Mason. She is the female victor of an unidentified Games from District 7. She also gets reaped for the third Quarter Quell. She was one of the youngest tributes in the Quarter Quell. She is the last living female victor of District 7, whose principal industry is lumber. In her original Hunger Games, Johanna pretended to be a weakling, feigning hunger and fatigue, when in reality she was sly and cunning, described by Katniss as having a “wicked ability to murder”. Johanna is proficient with axes, as she comes from District 7, where the main industry is lumber as stated above. It is hinted in Catching Fire that all of Johanna’s loved ones were killed by President Snow and the Capitol after her Games, as she tells Katniss that there is “no one left [she] loves.” – That from The Hunger Games Wiki page.

This news however, comes from THR. They report, Jena Malone has the offer and is in early negotiations for the part, according to sources.  So, don’t get made at me if everything changes again. I doubt that will happen though and this deal sounds as good as done. The Hollywood Reporter is a fine Hollywood News outlet.
