Did Hailee Steinfeld Snatch Hunger Games Role From Lyndsy Fonseca?
Lyndsy Fonseca (Alex) may have the beauty, strength, and acting chops to play Hunger Games star Katniss Everdeen, but it may take more than that. Like, say, an Oscar nomination. And a birthday in the late '90s.
True Grit star Hailee Steinfeld said at the Oscars that she’s up for the role of Katniss, and it sounds like she’s pretty much got it in the bag. "I met with [the film's director] Gary Ross," she said. "And yeah, it's definitely something we're taking one day at a time and making sure that everything is in place and everything's ready."
That’s a bummer for Lyndsy if she’s out of the running, but look on the bright side: She’ll have more time to devote to Nikita.
