Anytime casting news comes out for a film series based on a beloved book series, nobody likes the choices. And yet now, can you imagine anyone other than Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss? In the books, the end of the very first chapter Katniss volunteers as tribute in place of her sister, who was to be slated for the brutal fight-to-the-death games in the district's capital. Katniss is a survivalist, which is shown from the start when she hunts (illegally) to keep her mother and sister fed. She is a fighter, but interestingly is shown as compassionate when it comes to other contestants in the games. Her flaw is that sometimes she can overlook the present for the sake of the end result; the struggle she has with her compassion vs. her need to survive is what makes her, and the series, so compelling.
