"The Hunger Games" is adding a few more players.
According to The Wrap, actress Elizabeth Banks ("W," "30 Rock") is close to signing a deal to join the big-screen adaptation of Suzanne Collins' futuristic trilogy. Banks is being eyed for the role of flaky, pink-haired executive Effie Trinket, who works on the fight-to-the-death, gladiator-like games in which heroine Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) participates.
Meanwhile, newcomers Amandla Stenberg and Dayo Okeniyi have both signed on to the film, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Stenberg will play Rue, a 12-year-old who becomes Katniss' ally, while Okeniyi will portray the physically strong and intimidating Thresh.
The duo join Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth, who have already been cast as Katniss' fellow competitor/love interest Peeta and childhood friend Gale.
"The Hunger Games" is slated to arrive in theaters March 23, 2012.
Peeta: Mitch Hewer
I want to play with her starfish and give her a pearl necklace.
Just finished reading these books recently and thought they were terrific. Really looking foward to seeing the movie.
Did she start with Warner Communications?
She should be getting better movie roles.
she is beautiful and can act.
i woud love it if you would hold me down and drill me good.
She is too fatt anyways. I dont care if she is hungry. It would be good for her to loose some weight.
It would be great for you to learn how to spell the word "lose" and learn some proper grammar.
