'The Hunger Games': Chloe Moretz and Abigail Breslin want in
Now two other young actors have expressed their interest in the film adaption of Suzanne Collin's young adult series: Abigail Breslin and Chloe Moretz.
In an interview with the LA Times, "Let Me In" star Moretz says, "Yeah, I read all of the books. I'd die to play Katniss. It's such a cool role." Breslin (best known for "Little Miss Sunshine") tells MTV, "I think it's an amazing book. I'm a huge fan of the books. It's amazing, obviously it would be great [to be in the film]." When asked who her favorite character was, Breslin said, "Obviously Katniss."
While both actresses are obviously talented, they both might be too young to take on the role of 16-year-old Katniss, a contestant in The Hunger Games, a televised fight-to-the-death; Moretz is 13 while Breslin is 14 . We definitely want the actress to look believable as a 16-year-old as it makes all the violence more harrowing, but Moretz and Breslin look almost too young.
