First Impressions Friday (11)

First Impressions is a meme hosted here at Within Pages where we take a look at all things, mostly booky, and reflect on our initial thoughts. Non-bloggers, non-book bloggers, and everyone alike can participate on any topic you'd like. Feel free to drop your links or thoughts in the comments!

The Hunger Games Casting

The Hunger Games cast is not exactly similar to the way that I imagined it. Josh Hutcherson has been cast as Peeta; Liam Hemsworth as Gale, Lenny Kravitz as Cinna, and more.

While I believe that Josh Hutcherson is a great addition to the movie, in my imagination he is more fit for Gale. Something about Liam doesn't give the sharpness and athleticism I always saw Gale possessing. I also thought that Alex Pettyfer would be a fantastic Peeta. 

While every character was unique in my mind, the portrayals (unlike in the Harry Potter movies) aren't as accurate for me. I mean, I never imagined Cinna remotely like Lenny Kravtiz...never.

What about you? What are your thoughts?
