Jennifer Lawrence 'Hunger Games' Character Unveiled, Makes Fans Ravenous

Hunger Games

Adults young and old(er) are salivating for the movie version of The Hunger Games, which isn't set to release until March 2012. But to tide them over, today fans got a little taste of what the trilogy will look like on screen as Entertainment Weekly revealed pictures of Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen.

Check her out after the jump:

Jennifer LawrenceWhat do you think? Is she how you imagined? I'm still having a bit of trouble meshing the two, but overall she's pretty close to what I imagined I guess. (And I love her as a brunette by the way!) I'm sure that like Kristen Stewart and Bella Swan, it won't be long before the two become one and the same.

Overall -- while I know many disagree -- I'm thrilled Lawrence is in the role. Lawrence, however, admitted she had reservations about doing it. She told the magazine:

I knew that as soon as I said yes, my life would change. And I walked around an entire day thinking "It’s not too late, I could still go back and do indies, I haven’t said yes yet, it’s not too late."

But now it is -- phew for us. It sounds like she's pleased with her decision too. “I love this story, and if I had said no, I would regret it every day.”

With recent (and awesome!) news that Woody Harrelson will play Haymitch Abernathy, the hunger for these flicks shows no signs of dissipating any time soon. Let the games begin!

What do you think of Jennifer Lawrence's look as Katniss Everdeen? Are you counting the days until The Hunger Games movie?
