The strongest Catching Fire casting rumor over Johanna Mason so far is that model/actress Zoe Aggeliki has auditioned for the part. Playlist had her down as being considered along with Mia Wasikowska (who has now been completely ruled out) , but adding fuel to the fire is that Deadline is now reporting that Zoe is is not only the front-runner but is currently in talks.
Looks like we might have a Hunger Games winner. Zoe Aggeliki has the edge over Jena Malone for a role in Lionsgate‘s The Hunger Games sequel Catching Fire. Aggeliki and Malone (Sucker Punch) are up for the part of Johanna Mason, an ax-welding, deceptive and ruthless winner of a previous Hunger Games in the sequel film. However, sources say model-actress Aggeliki is the one in the most serious talks after both auditioned for director Francis Lawrence. Aggeliki has roles in the upcoming R.I.P.D. and another sequel, Percy Jackson: Sea Of Monsters.
Still no word from Lionsgate, so it’s still really just a rumor, but I can see her as Johanna.
