Zoe Aggeliki Totally In Talks To Play JOHANNA MASON In ‘CATCHING FIRE’.
Zoe Aggeliki may be an unknown quantity to people like me, but if this casting goes through she is about to go boom. That’s the sound of her blowing up. Yeah, groan, I know.
One of the big new characters in the Hunger Games sequel Catching Fire is Johanna Mason, and for the past few weeks we’ve seen quite a list of actresses who have been considered for the role. Huge Hunger Games fan Kristen Bell wanted the gig, but actresses like Mia Wasikowska, Jena Malone, and model/actress Zoe Aggeliki were the ones who seemed to have the best chance of getting the job.
And now Aggeliki is in talks for the role.
Deadline says that, as we knew, the choice was coming down to a decision between Malone and Aggeliki, and that the latter is in “the most serious talks” after both women auditioned for Catching Fire director Francis Lawrence. This would mark the second big role that Lawrence has cast, as he also smartly chose Philip Seymour Hoffman to play Plutarch Heavensbee.
And while Aggeliki may seem new to some audiences, she has already shot a role in R.I.P.D., which features Ryan Reynolds and Jeff Bridges as dead/supernatural law enforcers, and she is also set for a part in Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters.
