Jennifer Lawrence runs and more Catching Fire auditions
Jennifer Lawrence was photographed yesterday working out. At one point it looked like she was sprinting. You know what I hate about sprints the way Hayley makes me do them? First of all it’s never just once. With her it’s usually five times. And it has to be faster each time. Like it’s not bad enough that she’s making you giv’er down the field, you’re expected to be better the more tired you are. And when you complain she makes you do it all over again up a flight of stairs. God I hate exercise.
Anyway, Jen, as you can see, is keeping her fitness level up in advance of shooting Catching Fire in the fall. There’s still much to be done until then. I mentioned the other day - click here for a refresher - that they’re still trying to get the script in shape. And it also sounds like they’re seeing everyone they can to fill the remaining roles.
As reported yesterday, Philip Seymour Hoffman has been offered the role of Plutarch. Interesting choice. He was, way back, my pick to play Haymitch. I’m also told that while Garrett Hedlund’s audition went very well for Finnick, Sam Claflin also read for it. So again, they’re trying to look at as many options as possible. And with some imagination too. I hear exclusively that Catalina Sandino Moreno was asked to audition for Johanna Mason. But this is inspired, non? I am excited about her. Please note however that nothing has been decided. These details are just meant to give you an idea of how wide their searches have been although my sources tell me they are seriously considering Cicely Tyson for Mags.
