It will be the question Jena Malone is most likely to face from here on in…. how does she feel about being cast as Johanna Mason in Catching Fire…and has she read the books??
Well E! did just that when they caught up with Jena at the Beverly Hills party for Dannijo & Tucker Tea.
Here’s what they have to say:
“I’m super excited,” Malone exclusively told us at last night’s Beverly Hills party for Dannijo & Tucker Tea. “It’s going to be amazing.”
But she’s not rushing things.
“We’re getting there,” she said when asked if she’s met with director Francis Lawrence.
As for preparing for her role, she said, “One step at a time.”
Johanna is a former Hunger Games winner who becomes a rival to Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence).
One thing Malone doesn’t need to do is read the Hunger Games novels—she’s already done that.
“I read the whole series over a weekend when I had a wisdom tooth out,” she said. “I was in bed looking for something to read and my little sister recommended it like a year and a half ago, so she was like, ‘You have to read it! You have to read it!’ And so I’m glad I finally did and I loved it.”
