Elizabeth Banks Will Play Effie Trinket In The Hunger Games

Elizabeth Banks

According to Variety Elizabeth Banks will play Effie Trinket, the woman assigned by the government to shepherd the District 12 tributes– that’d be Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta (Josh Hutcherson)– through the Games.

I’ll try to explain it more: When Katniss and Peeta are chosen to fight in the games– a pair of kids between 12 and 17 are chosen from each of the country’s 12 districts to fight each year– they are trained in combat, of course, but Effie is on board to manage their media appearances. Her role is very similar to Laura Bush, who Banks played in W.

Gary Ross prepares to start shooting, so expect many more casting news.
