The hardest person for casting is Katniss. It's so hard when the girls now have to act stupid and girly to get parts, so you can't see them like you would Katniss. And, she's such a vital part (obviously) it's not like casting Glimmer or Foxface.
I agree that Katniss will be hard to cast because there aren't many girl roles for Katniss' age range that aren't "stupid and girly" like you said. I'd rather have someone known for small roles and maybe not as known in the movie field than have someone famous and well known. I don't anyone off the top of my head that fits Katniss' look or has the chops for the role.
I think Michelle Trachtenberg, being 24, would be too old to play Katniss. Even though she was on Gossip Girl, I don't think she really looks like she is in her mid-teens. But for years movies and tv shows have been trying to get us to think that 15 - 18 year olds look like 20-25 years old, so maybe she'd work.
