Jena Malone is the newest addition to be in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.
The 27-year-old – who will play Johanna Mason – recently told E! News, “I’m super excited. It’s going to be amazing.”
Asked if she has met with director Francis Lawrence yet she replied, “We’re getting there.”
Malone is prepared though since she has read all the books.
“I read the whole series over a weekend when I had a wisdom tooth out. I was in bed looking for something to read and my little sister recommended it like a year and a half ago, so she was like, ‘You have to read it! You have to read it!’ And so I’m glad I finally did and I loved it.”
Philip Seymour Hoffman and Amanda Plummer have also been added to the cast.
Josh Hutcherson also recently expressed his enthusiasm to have Jena on board. He said, “I’m super excited. I think that Jena Malone is fantastic.”
