Confirmed: Elizabeth Banks Joins The Hunger Games

by at . Comments

It's official. Elizabeth Banks is joining the film adaptation of The Hunger Games along with the likes of Liam Hemsworth, Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson.

The 40-Year-Old Virgin actress, 37, broke the news on Twitter. Banks writes:

"I can now confirm I'm EFFIE TRINKET in The Hunger Games. So excited!"

The rumor of Elizabeth's casting surfaced earlier in April, but was not confirmed until now. The film, based on the best-selling novel, is getting huge buzz.

As for Banks' character?

Always on time, Effie is very strict about manners. But despite a seemingly serious demeanor, she has bright pink hair. Think Banks is a good pick for the role?
