Kristen Bell Reveals Secret ‘Hunger Games’ Obsession: ‘It’s All I Think About’
In an interview with the Huffington Post, the Forgetting Sarah Marshall star divulged that she loves Suzanne Collins book series so much, it was the theme of her 30th birthday party. (Um, why didn’t we think of that?!)
Also, the actress, who is now starring in the Showtime series House of Lies which premieres Sunday, has expressed interest in playing a character in HG‘s 2013 sequel, Catching Fire. So, who exactly has she thought about playing, you ask?
Kristen has expressed interest in playing Johanna Mason. Without giving too much away for those who have yet to read, Johanna is a feisty (former) victor who butts heads with Katniss in the second book.
In terms of campaigning to get the role, Kristen hasn’t made too much progress (yet).
“I mean from my campaign desk here on my full-size bed in a back bedroom in my family’s house in Oregon, there are no new developments [Laughs] — other than the fact that I am trying to stay on top of it and not age too rapidly so that I can still be cast.”
Kristen also talked about her Hunger Games birthday party, and said:
“I put District numbers up around. I put District 4 for water over the pool. I put District 2 for electronics over the stereo and iPod. I had a blow-up castle bouncy house on the front lawn and I put The Capitol over the bouncy house. And over my front door, I put District 12. All my friends dressed as the characters and I dressed as Katniss. I was head-to-toe in spandex with a fire cape and carried a bow and arrow.”
