Rumor Has It ...
Back in May we learned that auditions for the forthcoming sequel film The Hunger Games: Catching Fire had begun and at the time 3 high profile actors were said to be in the running for the highly coveted role of Finnick Odair. It is now mid-July and, according to reports, none of those actors have secured the role … but we are hearing that a different actor has been offered the role.

Well, a new report out today is claiming that Idol producers are going after Adam Lambert — a former Idol contestant who LOST his season of competition — to become the new judge. HMMM. Does it really make sense to have a former AI loser help determine the next AI winner? More »
Mia Is Out, Jena Is IN
A couple of weeks ago, we learned that the brilliant young actress Mia Wasikowska was “in the mix” for the part of Johanna Mason in the forthcoming sequel film The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. At the time, other actresses were also rumored to be “in the mix” for the part but because I was really hoping for Mia to get the role, I didn’t really focus on those other actress.

While I don’t have any necessarily negative feelings on Jena‘s casting, I guess I am bummed that Mia didn’t win the role of Johanna. Blah. More »
