‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ Sets Sights on Newcomer Zoe Aggeliki

Time to pack it in, Jena Malone. It looks like newcomer Zoe Aggeliki is giving Malone a run for her money for the role of Johanna Mason in ‘The Hunger Games‘ sequel. But who is this Zoe Aggeliki anyway?

According to Deadline, it looks like Zoe Aggeliki has edged out Jena Malone for the coveted role of Johanna Mason in ‘Catching Fire.’ Mason is an ax-wielding, ass-kicking victor of one of the previous Hunger Games, and described as “ruthless” and “deceptive.” Mason will undoubtedly be a crucial part of the next film, making this a major career step for the relatively unknown Aggeliki.

Aggeliki is a model-turned-actress who can be seen alongside Ryan Reynolds in next year’s undead comedy ‘R.I.P.D.,’ a film about a cop who dies and is tasked with upholding the law in the land of the dead. Deadline also reports that Aggeliki is also in the upcoming ‘Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters.’

‘Catching Fire’ is the highly anticipated sequel to this year’s hit ‘The Hunger Games,’ based on the novel trilogy by Suzanne Collins. The first film, directed by Gary Ross, starred Jennifer Lawrence as heroine Katniss Everdeen, a young woman in a dystopian future who volunteers to take her sister’s place in an annual teenage fight to the death, grimly broadcast on television for the entertainment of the elite. The sequel, from director Francis Lawrence, will follow Katniss in yet another gruesome competition called the “Quarter Quell.”
