More Hunger Games News

More Hunger Games movie news! According to Variety, Elizabeth Banks is in talks to play Effie Trinket in The Hunger Games movie. I'd heard her name tossed around for Effie before and I think she could work. I also approve of her because she's a Hunger Games fan-yay! Check out her tweet about Mockingjay:
@ElizabethBanks "MOCKINGJAY!!! Clearing three days of my life to devour this book. 3rd in Hunger Games trilogy. Read these!"-Thanks MTV News for sharing celebrity tweets!

What do you think?


  1. I can't remember how old Effie Trinket is supposed to be but when I read the books I couldn't help but picture Miranda Richardson as Rita Skeeter when I thought of how Effie looked. I'm sure Elizabeth Banks will do a good job with the role if she gets the part though.

  2. She looks adorable! I've seen Kristen Chenoweth's name tossed around by fans and I admit I think she would be brilliant for the role, but then again, I don't know Elizabeth Banks. All the casting seems good so far, so I'm sure this actress would be no exception.

    The movie is coming out in less than a year... they'd better hurry up and cast it already, no??

  3. I think her playing that role would be awesome! She fits the look for sure.

  4. I can see this too, she has the ability to do quirky and stuffy at the same time. I'm pleased with this one.

  5. Christina-I pictured her the same way! I think Elizabeth Banks will do a great job though if she gets it!:)

    Allison-I know her from Scrubs and 30 Rock, so I recognized her name when I saw a couple people mention it. I'm hoping the rest of the cast comes together soon!:)

    Jana-Me too-I love that she's a fan of the books!

    Eleni-I think she'd look great with pink hair!

    Michelle-So true-she can be quirky and I think she'd be great.
