...Lawrence, 20, who stars next in The Beaver and just nabbed a coveted role in The Hunger Games, is, however, ready for a change: "I would like to move on to do something different ... Maybe wear makeup in a movie. I mean, that'd just be crazy, right?"
Casting for the male leads on The Hunger Games isn't complete. I'm hearing that at the moment, Liam Hemsworth is frontrunner for the role of Gale Hawthorne, and that Josh Hutcherson is in the same position for the role of Peeta Mellark. In the Gary Ross-directed adaptation of the Suzanne Collins novel trilogy, Gale is the hunting partner of Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence), and Peeta Mellark is the baker's son chosen to accompany her as the district's entry into the deadly Hunger Games reality show competition. Both have been hotly contested roles among young actors, as was Katniss before Lawrence got the job. Per Lionsgate, no offers have yet been made, and nothing is definitive.

Deadline reports that Jennifer Lawrence has fallen out of the O role in Savages because of her commitment to The Hunger Games movie. Savages is the Oliver Stone-directed adaptation of the Don Winslow novel. The movie is looking at candidates like Olivia Wilde to take on the role intended for the Hunger Games lead star.
Entertainment Weekly intervjuade nyligen Jennifer.
“I couldn’t be happier about being a part of Hunger Games and to play Katniss. I have a huge responsibility to the fans of this incredible book and I don’t take it lightly. I will give everything I have to these movies and to this role to make it worthy of Suzanne Collin’s masterpiece.”
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: What scene from the three books made you the most excited to play Katniss?
"I don’t think a particular scene made me excited to play Katniss, the entire book made me want that. That being said, I’ve never shot a bow and arrow, so that’ll be cool."
“I’ve met the producers. I’d be grateful to get the opportunity. Like, really grateful. It would be amazing. ”You don’t get much better than that,” he said.
“The true fans of the book. So regardless of whether I’m a part of the film or not, I feel honored to just sort of be thought of. I read the books all last year, and I guess they’re starting filming soon.”

“If it’s Jennifer [Lawrence], man, sign me up!” the 23-year-old actor said of the Winter’s Bone starlet, 20. “I think if it ended up being Hailee Steinfeld or Saoirse [Ronan] or who’s the other one? Abigail Breslin. Then it would be weird. It would be really weird.”
