Jennifer Lawrence is close to getting a new onscreen partner, as there appears to be a new frontrunner for the role of ruthless Johanna in Catching Fire! Zoe Aggelki is apparently in the lead over Jena Malone for the juicy role in the Hunger Games sequel. It looks like the odds are in Zoe's favor.

Zoe is an 18-year-old actress-turned-model who has been booking a number of roles lately, including another sequel, Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters. Also in contention for the part is Sucker Punch's Jena Malone, but sources say that the producers are leaning towards Zoe.

It sounds like we should know very soon who will have an ax to grind (so to speak).
