It’s Official: 'Hunger Games: Catching Fire' Casts Jena Malone as Johanna Mason

Catching Fire finally has its Johanna Mason.

Lionsgate officially announced Monday that Into the Wild star Jena Malone has indeed landed the coveted role in the second installment of The Hunger Games, as Celebuzz previously reported.

Who is Johanna Mason?

Johanna Mason is a female victor from a past Games still in her early twenties, and is one of the youngest, but also one of the most psychologically scarred Quarter Quell participants.

Every twenty-five years there is a Quarter Quell edition of the Hunger Games. Since it's such a special edition of the Games, it involves a twist that makes them that much more difficult to compete in, or watch.

Jena Malone joins Jennifer Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth, and Josh Hutcherson who will reprise their roles in Catching Fire. Philip Seymour Hoffman has also joined the cast, and Snow White and the Huntsman star Sam Claflin just nabbed the role of Finnick although an official announcement has yet to be made.

Did you know Jennifer Lawrence just pulled a Katniss move in real life? Watch below:

    She's very pretty and I love that dress! I wonder if they'll do the sharp teeth in the movie.

    Unlike Twilight, Hunger Games actually has meaning and a message. This could be our society if the future if we aren't careful. Also, Katniss is sort of a role model to tweens and up. She shows confidence, strength, and courage. Its not just some stupid book series like Twilight where Bella just does nothing but let a werewolf and a vampire fight over her and let the vampire get her pregnant.

    I think they hit the nail on the head with this one. I saw Amanda Plummer play a severely schizophrenic woman on Law & Order:SVU, and I don't mean it as an insult when I say: she can play crazy REALLY well.

    Jeffrey Wright is playing Beetee, not Tony Shalhoub. Check imdb.

    WOOW!! I am simply lnovig these new Kate interviews. She is so happy, kind humorous and relaxed. I love to hear her laugh!!Moments Of Pleasure . Oh God! I actually love this version even more than the original (which I love as well ). I love her singing style in this, it feels kind of free , personal and intimate . I was first shocked to hear she has taken away the chorus, but i guess it makes sense just being alive probably doesn't hurt anymore as much as it did then and the choir instead of the chorus is actually perfect Reminds me a bit of Hello Earth Thanks again!

    I'll see if I can get an RSS feed that will work for Dreamwidth (though isn't DW able to import fenrids from LJ? I'll have to investigate if two RSS feeds are necessary). Right now I'm not even certain that the LJ RSS feed is set up correctly It appears to be ignoring any updates made in the last 24 hours. I know there's sometimes a lag, but this is suspicious. In the meantime, you can follow the site from Facebook to get the updates as they occur!

    Totally agree. It's so silly to turn The Hunger Games into Twilight.

    'sunny' is right- When we saw the castng for Katniss, everyone was like: NOOOO! Jennifer Lawrence is nothing like Katniss- she's blond ...and...and... But she was great in the movie We'll just have to wait and seee, but i'm not worried about the looks of the actors, i think we should focus more on their acting skills as Finnick and Johanna are hard roles to play ;)

    When I saw the cute one-pieces (that didn't resemble Ellen's brown p.o.s.) I was exeticd.Caprina: you and I feel exactly the same about ourselves. I went over to Target.com and found some cute suits with shirring . It's that bunchy stuff in the middle? Anyway, I think they are gonna be cute (who knows though, I may get there and do myself in in the dressing room).Anyway, before I read this article today, I always thought of a one-piece as something girls had to wear when they weren't hot anymore, or when they were too old for a bikini. As of today, I will rock the one-piece, and seriously fake it til I make it when I show myself in it.I have to go to Vegas in 5 weeks, so I need a new bathing suit fast. I don't care what little girls in bikinis I see, I will wear it like it was my FIRST CHOICE, not the alternative because I don't think I'm hot enough for a two piece (they don't need to know I'm not!)We can fake it together Get that one-piece! 0

    The Hungers Games would be, without the love triangle, an epic annual games involving 24 tributes from 12 districts to compete and murder one another to earn riches, wealth, and fame

    You guys are insane. It's not hard for an actor to bulk up and get a tan. Finnick is, arguably, the best Hunger Games character/role besides Katniss. But, who says he can't do it? Physical changes are a piece of cake!
