Is Jennifer Lawrence poised to become the next big film superstar?
20- year old Jennifer Lawrence is well on her way to becoming a huge star in film. Having paid her dues in TV series such as Medium, Cold Case, Monk and a full time gig on The Bill Engvall Show (which ran three seasons), young Jennifer had a breakout role in 2010's indie smash Winter's Bone. The film earned her a Best Actress Oscar nomination which made people take notice. The Kentucky native is turning heads with her terrific performance as the young Mystique in the retro X-Men: First Class this summer, which has earned over $100 million in North America in less than a month.
And you may have heard that she was recently cast as Katniss, the heroine of the futuristic best-seller The Hunger Games. Katniss is a girl who is forced to fight in a televised death match with other teens. The Hunger Games is the first in a planned trilogy based on author Suzanne Collins' wildly popular dystopian series. I have never read any of the books but I am eagerly awaiting the movie, which hits theaters March 23rd, 2012. And expect the young Jennifer to just explodes into the stratosphere.
