Here's my fantasy cast for 'The Hunger Games'!!!
Paul Wesley (credits: Fallen, Vampire Diaries) as Gale:
I adore Paul Wesley. He fell on my radar when he starred in the ABC Family mini-series 'Fallen'. If you haven't seen it, check it out!!! Anyway, he seems like a pretty perfect Gale. Strong, manly, and hot.
Elle Fanning (credits: Because of Winn-Dixie, Astro Boy) as Prim:
Dekota Fanning is too old to play Prim, so the role has to go to her sister, Elle. If she has even half the talent of her famous sister, she should be able to pull at our heartstrings in the role of Prim!!!
Alex Pettyfer (credits: Alex Rider, Beastly) as Peeta:
I'll be honest here... I haven't seen this kid act yet. He just really looks like Peeta and I think he'd match up pretty well to my Gale.
Robert Downey Jr. (credits: Iron Man) as Haymitch:
The actor who plays Haymitch needs to have the ability to make us love him, even with his addiction to the bottle. Robert Downey Jr. could totally do that.
James McAvoy (credits: Shameless, Penelope) as Cinna:
Oh, James McAvoy, how I love thee. Really, he's talented and pretty. Those are two things an actor playing Cinna needs to be!
And playing the title role of Katniss? In my opinion, it should go to an unknown or at least relatively unknown actress. Bring in someone we viewers won't associate with any other major roles; someone who the audience will really see as Katniss. (Not in the crazy way Twilight fanatics see Kristin and Rob as Bella and Edward, but in a less obsessive sort of way!! Sorry, Twi-hards, you have to admit, asking someone to 'bite' you or 'growl' at you at a signing is weird!)
So there you have it-- my 'Hunger Games' movie cast. Agree? Disagree? Let me know! Remember, keep comments spoiler free!!!
