Lionsgate has made it official: Jena Malone is Johanna Mason for "The Hunger Games" sequel "Catching Fire." Johanna is described by Lionsdate as "a female victor from a past Games still in her early twenties, and is one of the youngest, but also one of the most psychologically scarred Quarter Quell participants."

EARLIER: Malone needs a revival after Zack Snyder's misfire, "Sucker Punch." The 27-year old actress has an impressive but imperfect resume that includes "Stepmom," "Donnie Darko," "Life As A House," "Cold Mountain," "Saved!," "Pride and Prejudice," "Into the Wild" and "The Messenger." It's wise to choose an experienced actress to play in "Catching Fire" (and third installment, "Mockingjay") across from Jennifer Lawrence. Newcomer model-actress Zoe Aggeliki was rumored to be a frontrunner and could have had a tough time holding her own against Lawrence's Katniss Everdeen.
