  1. Wow! This is great,Philip Seymour Hoffman is a good actor. Glad they are choosing better actors.

  2. Now the next big two will be Johanna and Finnick. I don’t think they confirmed Jena Malone as Johanna yet, but I don’t know how she will be. I think Johanna needs to have a little more of a BA quality
