Another hour, another batch of interesting The Hunger Games: Catching Fire casting rumors to pass along to you.
First a follow-up. A few days ago IndieWire reported that actresses Mia Wasikowska and Zoe Aggeliki were being considered for the role of Johanna. Now the former lady has denied even being considered for the part. Not only that, but she simply would not be able to due to previous work commitments. In fairness to IndieWire, their sources said that it was Aggeliki who’s close to signing a deal. Time will tell.
In other news, Romeo Miller (formerly known as Lil’ Romeo) said to MTV in a new interview that he’s met with Lionsgate for a role in The Hunger Games sequel. Said Miller, “I actually just met with Lionsgate about that, so you may be seeing me in one of the ‘Hunger Games.’ That’s all I’m saying. Not a particular role, we just had a meeting, seeing if it was something I was interested in. I can’t really talk too much, or they’ll kill me. You know how ‘The Hunger Games’ is.”
It’s interesting that Lionsgate is simply talking to various actors even if they reportedly don’t have a role in mind.
Earlier today we told you that Kevin Nash has spoken with the studio, and he appears to be in talks for a particular role.
In the most recent episode of Hunger Games Chat we fan-casted Johanna.
UPDATE: Following this story, a very reliable report about Johanna surfaced.
