The ink has yet to dry on the contracts, but The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that Jena Malone has been cast as tribute Johanna Mason in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.
Johanna Mason represents District 7, the lumber district and uses an axe during the 75th Annual Hunger Games. She won her first Hunger Games by pretending to be weak as a means of tricking the other tributes into underestimating her. The character is brash and snarky, with some of the best one liners in the Hunger Games series.
Most likely you’ve seen Jena Malone recently in the miniseries “Hatfields & McCoys” or in Zack Snyder’s Sucker Punch.
