Hunger Games Casting Update!
Effie Trinket will be played by......
Elizabeth Banks! This 30 Rock actress has been in a lot of comedies over the years and the minute I saw her cast in this part I thought, "she's perfect! why didn't I think of her before?"
Primrose Everdeen will be played by:
Willow Shields! Who is a new face! Really not much else I can say here....
To play Glimmer we have:
Leven Rambin! Not to be confused with popular book character Leven Thumps! (sorry, couldn't resist)
And for Rue:
Amandla Stenberg, another new face!
and finally for today Thresh was cast :
Dayo Okeniyi, who rounds out our new faces!
The cast is shaping up... Stay tuned for more updates and let me know what YOU think so far!
