‘The Hunger Games’ director, Gary Ross stops by CBS Morning Show to talk about The Hunger Games where he mentioned Jennifer as Katniss during the audition.
He described her first audition as, “ridiculous.”
“It floored me,” Ross said. “I could see the whole movie, forgetting about casting Jen. I saw, ‘Oh, my God, not only is this going to work, but it’s going have nuance and colors that I couldn’t even imagine.’”
He added, “I think she’s once a generation.”
… ”The thing about Jennifer,” Ross said, “she has such a depth of talent and such an accomplished actor, she’s more interesting in being an actor than being famous.”
