Remember that alleged yet undeniably bogus feud between Jennifer Lawrence and Kristen Stewart? That sh*t just got real. Well, not really, but The Hunger Games and Twilight stars are going for the same movie role and in an effort to make rivalries out of thin air (like magic!) a spat is being concocted.
The two ladies are going for Peyton Loftis in Lie Down In Darkness. The character is a beaut of a girl whose family contributes to her ultimate suicide. That is dark! It’s based on the book of the same name by William Styron.
Both actresses have expressed their interested in the role. “I want to play Peyton more than anything I can possibly taste or touch in my life,” Stewart said to Elle. “I want to play her so bad. They’re the most fucked-up family. There’s a script adaptation . . . and it’s good. Two people vying for the part [of the father] are Daniel Day-Lewis and Colin Firth. Daniel would be perfect.”
Then Jennifer Lawrence went and told W Magazine: ““I am obsessed with that part. I have this feeling of protectiveness over characters I want to play . . . If someone else gets the part, I’m afraid they won’t do it right.
“I’m trying to write the director . . . to convince him that I should be in his movie. I’ll chase him if I have to. I’ll sit outside his house.”
These ladies are both too laid back to get into any sort of Hollywood-style feud (thankfully) but we have to say, this must be the most difficult decision of life for the casting director. [Source]
Who do you think would fit the role?
