As part of Vanity Fair‘s special on The Hunger Games they interviewed Gary Ross, the director, about the the cast and characters in the film. Gary tells Vanity Fair how he originally got into The Hunger Games, how he came to choose Jennifer Lawrence for the role of Kaniss Everdeen, his opinion on Josh Hutcherson as an actor, and living up to Suzanne Collins’ expectations.
Krista Smith (Vanity Fair): Tell me—how did you get into The Hunger Games?
Gary Ross: I read the book. My kids turned me on to it, and I went nuts. I guess, about a year ago. I literally read it and said, “I have to make the movie.”
KS: And what’s been the best part so far?
GR: You rarely get a tentpole that has this much emotional depth, this much character to dive into. The character of Katniss is . . . incredible. Suzanne [Collins, the author of the books,] did such an amazing job, and painted such a vivid character that I think for me and Jen. . . . It was just exciting every day. Not just from a pure filmmaking perspective, but also just in terms of the depth of the acting and exploring the character.
KS: How did you get Jennifer to play Katniss?
GR: I was just a fan. When you do what I do, any time you see an actor like this emerge—I think everybody’s head sort of snapped, you know? Both from Winter’s Bone and other work that she’s done, I was just always very aware of her. And then I had a meeting with her, and I was just as impressed, and then she came in and read for us and she sort of blew me away. But I wasn’t totally surprised, because I think that an actor like this comes along, you know, once a generation.
KS: I’m reading the book now—I’m told once you start, you’re not able to stop.
GR: Totally true. And also, [Katniss is] just such a compelling character, and her struggle and her evolution is so beautiful, and that’s what I’m saying. You see the character emerge and grow and have so much strength—she’s a very important character for kids, because she starts off purely in a fight for survival, and by the end of the story, she learns there’s so much more. There [are] things more important than merely surviving—like, what does it mean to actually live?

Total Film has compiled a list of the 30 Hottest New Hollywood Actresses and our very own Jennifer Lawrence (Katniss) landed the #2 spot right behind Emma Stone as #1! Here is what they had to say about Jennifer:
The Actress: Oscar-nominated for her turn in indie favourite Winter’s Bone, Lawrence has since wowed the multiplex crowd with her eye-catching performance as Mystique in X-Men: First Class. First rule of showbusiness: wearing nothing but blue paint is a sure-fire way of getting yourself known…
Why So Hot? The Hunger Games series might just be the next Harry Potter (or at least that’s what Lionsgate will be hoping), or at the very least, the next Twilight. Starring as the saga’s feisty heroine Katniss Everdeen, and with a reappearance in the next X-Men movie also likely, Lawrence is set to take her place at the very top of the A-list.
