NEWS: Elizabeth Banks shares her thoughts on Finnick, Johanna & Beetee casting

Our Effie, Elizabeth Banks shared her thoughts on the casting for Finnick, Johanna and Beetee via her own blog at this morning. Check out what she had to say about some of her new fellow cast members!
Lionsgate is wrapping up the casting for my next flick, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and I am a kitten in a tub of milk over all the news!
Sam Claflin gave me a tummy flutter in Snow White and The Huntsman so I couldn’t be happier that he’s taking on the role of Finnick Odair.
Jena Malone will play Katniss’s sarcastic frenemy Johanna Mason. She’s got grit and spunk in spades. Quote me on that.
The amazing Jeffrey Wright will play fan fave Beetee. We worked together on Oliver Stone’s W - he’s never less than perfection.

You can see a full breakdown of the Catching Fire cast so far on the official The Hunger Games Facebook page.

We’ll start shooting this fall, so stay tuned for more news from the set of Catching Fire. I’m excited to work with everyone in the cast, and you know I can’t wait to transform into Effie again - crazy nail art, wigs, and all.
