‘Catching Fire’ Dream Cast by Movies.com!
Sementara tributes diseluruh dunia sedang menanti-nantikan siapa saja Catching Fire cast untuk tahun depan, Movies.com memilih beberapa pemain yang berpeluang besar untuk menempati peran yang masih kosong di Catching Fire. Berikut artikel dari Movies.com :
Johanna Mason: Brie Larson
I’m sure Kristen Bell would be fine in the role, but 31 just doesn’t equal late teens/early 20s and Johanna Mason has to bear a likeness to Katniss age-wise. Johanna is tough and snarky, but she’s got to have a little heart. Brie Larson plus brown hair dye? Now that could be a stellar option. Larson’s been an incredibly busy actress for quite some time, but has yet to land a role that garners the attention she deserves. That movie should have been Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, but sadly, that also didn’t get the attention it deserved. Anyway, Larson’s resume still proves she’s got a thing for playing sassy yet loveable characters and could create an electric on-screen relationship with Jennifer Lawrence.
Mags: Linda Hunt
Mags, Finnick’s co-tribute from District 4, does get some time in the spotlight, so acting chops are a must, but it’s her looks that are really going to sell the part. Finnick spends a good portion of the Games carrying Mags on his back. When thinking of actresses in their 70s or 80s, my mind automatically goes to the incredible Maggie Smith, but Maggie Smith on the back of a strong 20-something seems a little silly. Next up is Ellen Albertini Dow, but considering she’s hit 93, the physicality involved might be a bit out of her range. Linda Hunt, on the other hand, could be a good option. She’s 67, only 4’9” and, based on her work on NCIS: Los Angeles, seems incredibly capable of handling the part, both giving off a somewhat frail appearance, but still giving off the impression that she once had the ability to win the Hunger Games.
Cashmere & Gloss: Amber Heard & Alex Pettyfer
Speaking of 75th Hunger Games tributes that resemble their 74th Hunger Games counterparts, how about Amber Heard for Cashmere? Heard’s got a lengthy resume and while all the films on that list might not be the greatest, in terms of delivering as an actress, she’s got a pretty solid track record. While she may not have the physical presence of someone like Carino, Heard most certainly could pass as a physical threat.
Matching looks is more important than ever for Gloss and Cashmere not only because they’re both from District 1, but because they’re brother and sister. You wanted Alex Pettyfer? Now you’ve got him. Pettyfer is certainly no Peeta, but his particularly defined facial features give him a rather harsh look, something that’s quite appropriate for a Career. But, of course, he’s also incredibly good-looking, which seems to be the case with all District 1 residents, something that goes nicely with names like Marvel, Glimmer, Cashmere and Gloss.
Plutarch Heavensbee: John Goodman
An age is never specified for Seneca Crane’s replacement, but I always naturally pictured the new Head Gamemakers to be on the older side. President Snow must look more stately than Plutarch Heavensbee, but at the same time, I always suspected his appointment might have been due to the fact that Snow considered Crane to be too young for the gig and without enough respect for the rules of the long-standing tradition. Of course, that’s only speculation, but it’s that thought process that leads me to John Goodman for the role. Clearly, he’s not a thin guy, so that works, but Goodman is also an actor with an endless list of films to his name, many of which are quite good and feature strong performances. Ability isn’t the issue here; it’ll just come down to who Suzanne Collins and director Francis Lawrence envision Plutarch to be.
Hazelle Hawthorne: Maura Tierney
Yes, Gale’s mother, Hazelle, is pivotal in Catching Fire in a number of memorable scenes, but none of which effect the trajectory of events, suggesting she, Rory, Vick, and Posy could get cut. However, should Hazelle make it to the big screen, she must somewhat resemble her son, have a degree of warmth and also come across as a particularly strong woman. Unlike Katniss’ mother, when Hazelle’s husband perished in the mining accident, Hazelle held on strong, going to work washing people’s laundry to support her family. Having been ER-addicted for quite some time, it’s clear that Maura Tierney would have no trouble playing the woman in charge, but also highlight Hazelle’s motherly nature.
Beetee: Robin Williams
Perhaps it’s because I’ve got a little tech nerd in me, but should I live in Panem, I always imagined I’d hail from District 3. Naturally, that developed into a particular appreciation for Beetee. He’s reaped for the 75th Hunger Games and, considering he’s from a non-Career district, is older and isn’t as robust as the competition, Beetee isn’t the ideal ally – except to Katniss. I’ll admit, I had my eye on Michael Emerson for the role, but considering E! Online beat me to it, I’m going to throw another name in the ring, Robin Williams. A mere glance at his resume proves he’s capable of just about anything, and it’s that vast repertoire that suggests Williams could be a convincing inventor and also someone you can trust.
Wiress: Fairuza Balk
Brutus: John Cena
Enobaria: Gina Carano
Chaff: Nonso Anozie
Finnick Odair: Armie Hammer
