According to The Wrap, Katniss will be played by up-and-coming actress Jennifer Lawrence, who recently starred in Winter's Bone and was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actress.  Here she is in the role of Ree Dolly from Winter's Bone:

She doesn't look anything like the image of Katniss I had in my head while reading (Katniss is described as having a dark, olive complexion with dark hair and gray eyes), but she did do an excellent job in a gritty role as Ree, so I'm willing to give her the benefit of the doubt. What do you guys think? Does Lawrence work for you, or is there someone else you wanted to see get the role? How about the other characters – who do you see as Peeta, Gale, Haymitch, Cinna, Rue, etc.?
