Elizabeth Banks: Hunger Games' Effie Trinket!

Elizabeth Banks has landed the part of Effie Trinket in the upcoming Hunger Games movie!

The 37-year-old actress, best known for her roles in 30 Rock and The 40-Year-Old Virgin, will play the perky handler assigned by the Capitol to escort and advise Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) as they prepare for the Hunger Games.

From the day Katniss volunteers to take little sister Prim’s place, Effie maintains a freakishly breezy disposition and an obsession with etiquette and punctuality that masks a growing attachment to these two young tributes.

Congrats to Elizabeth!!
