Hunger Games movie

Racist casting call for a movie based on the Hunger Games novels, which star characters canonically described as "olive-skinned with black hair and grey eyes". Casting call? CAUCASIAN. Side note rage: casting call includes "naturally pretty underneath her tomboyishness". Because, you know, being a "tomboy" means you aren't pretty, and being pretty is all that matters.

To go one further, fuck the word/concept of "tomboy."

I'm just crossing my fingers that Hailee Steinfeld or Malese Jow (who would have made fantastic Azulas) are going to be cast. Girls are BAMF.

I will be deeply upset if they mess up Rue though.

I really want Hailee Steinfeld to get it, she would be PERFECT. Vanya and I were talking last night about how the dress she wore at the Oscars was basically the kind of thing Cinna dresses Katniss in for the victory tour, lol.

Also WTF at "underfed." Like Hollywood girls need any more encouragement to appear starved.
