CASTING FIRE: Jena Malone Offered Johanna Mason!!

Is this fate, or what? According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jena Malone has been offered the role of Johanna Mason, and what do you know they share the same initials!

While many in Hollywood are cutting out early for the holidays, it’s reaping day for Jena Malone.

Malone has the offer and is in early negotiations for the part, according to sources.  The move nixes premature reports that pegged newbie actress-model Zoe Aggeliki as the frontrunner to play the ax-wielding former Hunger Games winner from District 7, who aligns with Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson) in their return to the arena for an all-stars death match.The Sucker Punch actress is in talks to play snide tribute Johanna Mason in The Hunger Games sequel Catching Fire, a key role that will be reprised in the trilogy’s third installment, Mockingjay.

We are super excited about her being cast, I mean have you SEEN her IMDB page? Not only is she close to Johanna's age, but she has acting credits up the wazoo. Let's hope she accepts!
