    Hailee Steinfeld better get the part. I loved her in True Grit, and I’m positive she would do just as phenomenally as Katniss.

      Agreed! Of the actresses named, Hailee Steinfeld looks the part and has the acting chops needed. My only gripe is that she looks a little too young. It would be awkward seeing her play Katniss alongside a Peeta who will no doubt be someone age 18 .

        Yes, she still has a little baby face. While I’d love for her to be Katniss in a few years, that’s not possible, so I’d rather someone a bit older. :/
