First off, yes, I realize that today is Saturday...I had a busy, busy day in London, England yesterday and did not get the chance to come online. I was gone from around 9:40 a.m., until 11:00 p.m. looking at things like Big Ben, The Houses of Parliament and the Tower of London. I was dead tired when I got back to my room.
Anyway, on Fridays I will blog about anything from a movie I want to see on the weekend, a recipe that I have tried (that may or may not have turned out well), or random thoughts on books that I have read. Today, I would like to combine the two. I found myself at one point trying to determine who I would cast in a movie version of The Hunger Games (this doesn't seem too far-fetched. There is bound to be a movie made from the book soon). I would like to share my thoughts with you on who I think would do well in the major roles:
Katniss Everdeen: AnnaSophia Robb (she would have to have dark hair of course- she is the girl from Bridge to Terabethia and Race to Witch Mountain)
Peeta: Jake Abel (Check him out on IMDB.com)
Gale: Rafi Gavron (see Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist or Inkheart)
Primrose Everdeen: Elle Fanning
Mrs. Everdeen: Julianna Margulies
Haymitch: Steve Buscemi
Effie Trinket: Susan Sarandon
If you have read the books, or have any idea of the characters at all, who do you think will be a good person to fill any of these major roles? OR is there a book that you have read and you automatically thought about who would play the major character (or characters) in the film? You have? Then tell me about it!
