Dear Producers and Casting Directors of major projects:

Get. Your. Act. Together.

First Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss in The Hunger Games?

Then Bradley Cooper in a remake of The Crow?

And now speculation that Kate Hudson has signed on to another Linda Lovelace torture porn, i mean biopic featuring torture porn?

Oh, and let’s not forget Rosie Huntington-Whitley in the next Transformers celebration of boobies and explosions  shitshow.

And I still remember the fact that one of you cast a neurotypical woman in Temple Grandin and an able-bodied man on Glee. 

I graduate in November. Care to clean up your act and make the industry a little less fucked up when it comes to gender, race, and (dis)ability?

Otherwise, I’m going to be very, very pissed off. And it’s not a good idea to piss of a ginger feminist badass with too much student loan debt and no tolerance for this bullshit.

    I’m under the impression that Katniss had brunette or black hair, not bright blonde. I hate it when they don’t correctly interpret characters!

    Why don’t you think Jennifer Lawrence should be a good Katniss? Sorry if this seems like a silly/rude question, but I honestly don’t know too much about the new movie and it’s been a VERY long time since I read the Hunger Games series, so I’m not sure… is it just hair color or is there something else?
