“Happy-go-lucky” Jena Malone Finds Herself as the “Angry” Johanna in ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’
Jena Malone may consider herself to be a “happy-go-lucky” gal, but that certainly wasn’t the case the day she auditioned for her role as Johanna in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. While many actresses came into the audition room interpreting her as bitchy, Malone played the character as downright angry.
She revealed to Vulture why she nailed the role on a day when everything went wrong.
Malone said, “Before the audition, I was like, Fuck, I’m so not an angry person. I mean, I can do intimidating or whatever, a little bit. But I’m much more of a happy-go-lucky, make everyone feel comfortable [person]. Anger’s not something you can fake. It’s something that channels through you, out of nowhere. It’s a hard thing to control. So I was like, Fuck, this is going to be a little complicated, and I don’t wanna go in there and give him something fake and ridiculous. And so, I don’t know what happened, but the morning I woke up, everything started pissing me off. My alarm didn’t go off right; someone called me at five in the morning. I got out of bed on the wrong side of the bed. And I was like, Whoa, whoa, whoa, what’s happening?” Read more

I’m happy to say that The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is pretty darn good. It tops the first film in every category, most notably… there’s no shaky cam!
What’s shaky cam? Think back to the first film and all of the action sequences. When I was sitting in the audience, I couldn’t tell one thing that was happening during any of those sequences. It was beyond frustrating and I haven’t bothered watching it a second time because of that.
What a difference Director Francis Lawrence has made in this top notch sequel.
At the beginning of the story, the 74th Hunger Games has ended and Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson) are now home but not for long because they are forced to go on a victory tour to all of the other districts. Along the way though, things start to get out of hand with the prisoners. Uh, I mean residents of the districts. President Snow wants none of this and comes up with The Quarter Quell.
The Quarter Quell happens once every twenty-five years and the goal is to get rid of all of the previous Hunger Game winners… especially ones who are causing trouble for Mr. President. Read more
Many actors in Hollywood are just another pretty face, but for Girls star Adam Driver, he’s a unique face. As the oddly attractive boyfriend of Hannah on the HBO series, the 29-year-old actor knows he is not your typical chiseled Tinsel Town performer.
He joked about himself, “I’m like a sight gag. I have this really big face.”
In fact, one TV writer even described his looks as “worthy of the Mongolian plains.”
Driver takes it all in stride since he is atypical in a land where many leading men stand around 5-foot-10 while he towers at 6-foot-3.
He explained, “Costume people are always saying they don’t have clothes big enough for me.”
The cable star seems a bit baffled by his success with his unconventional looks. Read more
One of the most highly anticipated films of the holiday season is Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues. One of the actors returning to the fan-favorite film is David Koechner who plays Champ Kind, the sportscaster at Ron Burgundy’s San Diego news station.
The stand-up comedian recently spoke with the San Diego Reader about his career and why he chose to star in a film like Pirahana 3DD.
“The reality is, I have five kids. Sometimes, economics makes choices for you. But here’s the thing I love: I do all kinds of stuff, and I embrace it. I wasn’t stuck with four more films like Piranha 3DD,” explained Koechner. “I went and did Anchorman 2. I did three episodes of Hannah Montana. I did a voice on Phineas and Ferb. I went to Canada and shot a film with Brent Butt. I went to Vermont and did a short film that made me cry because it was about a woman who grew up in a family where her two oldest brothers had Duchenne muscular dystrophy, and they knew they were going to die. I don’t think I even got paid for that, but it was one of those things that you have to do. I did a dark thriller called Cheap Thrills that has some comedic elements.” Read more
