Saw this in the hob an hour ago…not to be a wise a** but…ya.
I thought it was great!
I really like this casting. I love the stylists.
She looks great! Venia is gonna be awesome!
ooohhhhmmmmgg she s perfect
Throughout every book I always kind of pictured Venia as asian-looking. She looks almost exactly like she did in my head, so it’s pretty awesome!
I really am waiting for Madge right now. I know she’s barely seen, but she technically is a big part because she GAVE Katniss the Mockingjay pin. So she technically started that for the books.
wow! shes great! love her!
Almost exactly how I imagined her, She just needs the make up and she’s done
Some people have been saying they cut madge out, but don’t take my word for it! I really hope they have madge! D:
Wow!! I love her!!! this is soo great! When she has all her capitol like make-up and stuff on, she will look awesome!!
i know!!! WE NEED A MADGE!!!!!
what would the movie be without her???
You guys… There isn’t going to be a Madge. They took her out of the story.
@Alex they said she MIGHT not be in THG they never said she isnt just saying
i hope there is a madge, but if there isn’t i bet they just wanted to make Katniss getting the pin even more dramatic. The mayor’s daughter giving it to her isn’t that exciting… but somewhere i heard they might have Katniss’ dad give it her! That sounds great and i would be fine with it that way.
I saw it at the hob too and they didn’t have a pic. Amazing I LOVE YOU GARY ROSS! SMOOCHES!!! YOU ROCK AND DUDE- YOU’RE MY IDOL. I WANT TO BE A DIRECTOR SO BAD… ROCK ON, MAN!
Yea well Madge is pretty important cuz she gave Katniss the pin and in the book it says she’s a friend to katniss.
It would be pretty easy to cut her. They could have anyone giving her the Mockingjay pin like Gale perhaps or Peeta’s dad. The only importance that the Madge giving the pin is because of Madge’s Aunt dying in the hunger games that Haymitch won in. A B plot that could be dropped without losing the tone of the story.
@Kara: agreed. My only other thought is that it gives Gale an opportunity to smolder about how the Capitol ensures that there’s disparity between upper and lower class (tesserae). But they can do that in a different way easily enough.
I’m glad this movie will include such diversity! ^_^
HOW DARE THEY PICK SOMEONE WHO DOESN’T NATURALLY HAVE GOLD TATTOOS?!
*laughs* Just kidding. xD
She’ll be wonderful as Venia! She looks almost exactly how I imagined her to be. =D
I hope they don’t cut out Darius. D: He’s an awesome minor character! =D
GREAT choice!!! shes exactly how i imagined!!
@alex how dare they!>:O
@kara, they could have katnisses mum give her the pin, because she was maysilees friend
One word…. PERFECT!
I don’t think we need a Madge because she has about 5 lines and I hope they put Madge in, but it’s very unlikely. Really anyone could have given her the Mockingjay pin and I really don’t get how everyone’s saying she’s a BIG part of the books. I think her dad should have given her the pin.
Yeah actually that could work and would have more of an emotional connection for the viewer. You know shes wearing the last thing she would ever get from her mother. Especially if she said ‘This once was your fathers’
Oh man! These casting ppl suck! SHE’S MEANT TO HAVE BLUE HAIR! Jeez, and how hard is it to find a green person?
*Just giving u a taste of how annoying it is to hear haters hate on Jlaw* JLAW? OMG! This is like, turning into twilight!!! I mean, KStew, Rpattz? U CAN SEE, WE’RE ALL TURNING INTO TWIFANS!!!!
*btw i know it’s octavia that’s green – srry if it sounds like i have no knowledge!
Shes perfect. One of the best castings there is. <3
um..okaay..i can lived with it…
honestly i never really pictured venia in my mind…
OH AND I REALLY, REALLY DO THINK THAT THE MOVIE HAS TO HAVE A MADGE. I MEAN FOR ME IT IS IMPORTANT. cuz she is like a friend to katniss and well it really is special when she gives katniss the pin..
and come on.. dont you all remember the part when katniss and peeta are watching haymitch’s scenes in the hunger games and they see madge’s aunt or something…so it is kind of important… just sayin
and i agree that it would be easier to just cut out the parts..but it would be more intresting for the movie to have a madge..and more HAPPY fans..
oh, me me likes her Think she’ll do a great job.
Yay she’s Japanese too! She looks great for the part
@ilovepeeta, made is a really minor character and easily cut out. Even the sub plot you mentioned in Catching Fire with Haymitch could easily be axed without any real harm to the story. It’s inevitable that some things will change, but I really think Gary Ross will still find the right tone and feeling for the story.
She has really nice eyes. And I really like how they’re using many races here, not just one.
it doesnt really mattter what they look like, cause they are going to be wearing so much makeup it wont matter. we wont even see what their faces look like cause they will be wearing the capital style
She looks like a stylists for the hunger games i see how it works
This is awesome! I can just see her now with her aqua hair all spiked up! This is perfect!
