Online reports are confirming that one of our favourite rising stars (and Best Actress Oscar Nominee) Jennifer Lawrence has been cast as the lead in the film adaptation of The Hunger Games.  Hollywood has been buzzing about who will play the novel’s butt-kicking heroine Katniss Everdeen for weeks, and it’s been reported that several actors were considered including Oscar-nominees Abigail Breslin and Hailee Steinfeld.  FYI: apparently hottie Alex Pettyfer will have a role in the movie too.–Ashley Singh
