MTV’s Hollywood Crush gives their input as to whether or not Elizabeth Banks would be great as Effie Trinket in the Hunger Games. As we previously reported Elizabeth Banks has been reported to be in the running for the role.
I know everyone is so gung-ho on Kristin Chenoweth, who, you know I think is wonderful and would do an amazing job, but I think Elizabeth could be as equally amazing,” said The Hob‘s Megan Scott.Theresa Morgan from Down With the Capitol had to agree. “As a reader, you either roll your eyes at [Effie] or laugh at her,” she explained. “I think that [Elizabeth] is a really good fit for the role because she’s had such experience in both comedy and drama.”
Did we also mention that Elizabeth is a huge fan of the series? The actress recently tweeted, “MOCKINGJAY!!! Clearing three days of my life to devour this book. 3rd in Hunger Games trilogy. Read these!”
It’s hard not to root for an actress who’s so passionate about the project, right?
Being an already HUGE fan of Elizabeth Banks, you might call me biased! But I truly do think she would be GREAT as Effie! The fans would not be disappointed!
