38. Have you read the books?

When books get a fan base, (which is usually the first step in deciding to adapt a book to a movie) that fan base becomes important especially in a multi-book series. Because that fan base is usually the ones who buys tickets. Which means, you don't want to turn off the fan base early on. So, that's what Katniss Everdeen has to do with Lawrence. A casting director attempts to pick actors that come close to the characters described in the books to protect ticket sales. Lawrence's hair was dyed to fit the role, for example, but there is no question that her acting abilities took precedent over the physical characteristics which would have made her a better match for the character described in the books.

Alice Cullen has nothing to do with Greene. The filming of that franchise is over. Green is free to be whoever she wants to be. Which is why this decision is surprising, unless she's preparing for a role we don't know about.
