Jennifer Lawrence was joined by Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth at The Hunger Games hand and footprint ceremony on Saturday in Hollywood. The hand and footprint honour is much more prestigious than having a star on the Walk Of Fame. For The Hunger Games, though, the justification is all in the numbers. Full Story

Deadline just reported that Julianne Moore is being considered to play President Coin in Mockingjay which will be split into two movies because they’re all money-grabbers now. It started with Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows. I’m a Potter fan so you’re welcome to accuse me of bias but that book was so dense, with actual action, at the time it was understandable. Full Story

Jennifer Lawrence is considered one of the favourites for Best Actress on Sunday (even though more and more momentum seems to be shifting to Emmanuelle Riva). Taking advantage of her profile going into the weekend, promotional images from two separate campaigns not related to Silver Linings Playbook have been released. Full Story

Finnick...

The new cover of Entertainment Weekly -- Jennifer Lawrence and Sam Claflin as Katniss and Finnick in Catching Fire with a still from the movie on the inside. How you doing? You OK with that? The shot from the film is better, I guess, but whatever it is that’s happening on the front page really isn’t working for me. Full Story

When you show up at an awards show and you are the first on the carpet because, regardless of roles recently landed, you’re not that important and haven’t been for some time? When you scheme and campaign for a high-profile role, and everyone knows that you wanted it, and now you’ve got it and ostensibly are there as much to promote it as to support the other project you are in?  When that’s the case, maybe don’t be the most tight-lipped, smirking, “oh I just don’t like to talk about that stuff” brat on the carpet, because nobody cares yet, and they have all forgotten Saved anyway, and incessant hair-dyeing and general young-person-ness means you’re not at all a veteran just yet. Full Story

Here’s Sam Claflin on the set of Catching Fire with blonde hair as Finnick. After the main three, it was the casting of Finnick that everyone was most angsty about. And? I think the makeup is throwing me off. On screen it won’t be noticeable obviously but right now, without proper lighting, it’s just not the Finnick I imagined. Full Story

Casting rumours are just like regular rumours. Everyone reads the first headline but no one ever reads the denial and subsequent dismissal. Take Melissa Leo for example. If you were to google Melissa Leo you’d find several pages of links reporting that she’s to be Mags in Catching Fire citing Variety as a source. Full Story

The Hollywood Reporter reported exclusively the other day that Jena Malone will play Johanna Mason in Catching Fire. Or, rather, they reported that: “Malone has the offer and is in early negotiations for the part, according to sources. Full Story

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. Full Story

Is this your Finnick?

E! News reported the other day that Taylor Kitsch, Garrett Hedlund, and Armie Hammer were on the short list to play Finnick in Catching Fire, the sequel to The Hunger Games. Multiple sources tell me that Armie Hammer is far and away the first choice of director Francis Lawrence. Full Story

Is this Johanna Mason?

There’s a random rumour circulating that Glee’s Dianna Agron is a potential candidate to play Johanna Mason in Catching Fire, the sequel to The Hunger Games. Please note however that I can’t find ANY legit source to support this report. Dianna Agron? Would you buy Dianna Agron as the cunning, savvy Johanna? Maybe she’s been limited on Glee. Full Story
