Maiara Walsh: Katniss Everdeen in 'The Starving Games'!

Maiara Walsh has been cast as a version of Katniss Everdeen in The Starving Games, a parody of the mega-hit The Hunger Games.

The film, written and directed by Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer (the minds behind Date Movie, Meet the Spartans, and Vampires Suck), will also spoof The Avengers, Sherlock Holmes, and the finale of the Harry Potter franchise, according to THR.

Maiara‘s character will actually be named Kantmiss Evershot. Brant Daugherty, known for playing Noel Kahn on Pretty Little Liars, will be the parody version of Gale.

FYI: You may recognize Maiara from her roles on Desperate Housewives and Switched at Birth.

LOL! Is this the only movie role, that’s being offered to her?! Girlfriend your career….

# 3

Actually the only place I remember her from is “Cory in the House”…..

# 4

She looks like Katniss more than the chubby overrated jennifer lawrence.

# 5

I don’t know much about her but, at least she hasn’t that ugly squirrel smile as jlawrence.

# 6

LoL. IA. Jennifer has a horrible smile.

# 7

Say what you want about her career, but Maiara Walsh is definitely prettier than Jennifer, has better hair, and a nicer smile.

# 8

She looks like a better Katniss than Jennifer. Anyways, dont make fun of peoples careers just because they haven’t had the same opportunities as other actors.

She sucked in Winters Bone @ 10/23/2012 at 9:06 pm

The only reason Jennifer Lawrence is as famous as she is is because all the teenage virgins are obsessed with her and think she is hiilarious and ‘real’ lol go watch some REAL actresses instead of this ugly, overrated wannabe.

@jenfan:
Jennifer Lawrence sucks though… she is fake.

hey, the TVD girl, she was the werewolf chic right
I don’t knw much about her but she made me hate her character a lot so I guess shes good
good luck

She looks like a better Katniss than Jennifer.

My GOD…Jennifer Lawrence has an incredible figure!!. Beautiful young woman, talented as hell, too.

Oh, and it’s hilarious how a couple of the nastiest posts here have been written by one person (LOL!)…whomever you are, you seem to have A LOT of time on your hands (LOL!). Anyway, I don’t care how much this Maiara Walsh looks like Katniss, the reason Walsh could only land the role in a spoof film is because she doesn’t have the acting chops for the real thing like Jennifer Lawrence…you know, the one who received rave reviews for The Hunger Games, brought THG to a 700 million dollar BOX OFFICE WINNER, is on her way to a SECOND OSCAR NOMINATION?? and Lawrence is only 22. Now, that’s a tremendous amount of beauty, talent and sucess, good for Jennifer.

@keka: She was in the Desperate Housewives too. She played Ana Solis.

How can you say Jen Lawrence is a bad actress? She has one OSCAR nomination at just 20 years old!!! She is the second youngest actress to ever get nominated. And this year, she is again a favorite to be nominated for Silver Linings Playbook! AND SHE IS 22!
You are really dumb to consider her a bad actress, she was named by Rolling Stones the most talented young actress from America.
For this Maiara, I have nothing to say. Probably this new movie will be something like Disaster Movie, Epic Movie etc. She is probably trying to become a new Carmen Electra or something.

haha, have they not learned anything from past parodies yet?

@Sonia:

She was in TVD yes but not Jules, the werewolf!
She played the girl Tyler killed and she’s the reason he triggered the werewolf curse! ;)

WOW
Maiara is gorgeous!!

Kinda shocked at all the negative comments about JLaw here, especially considering the article isn’t even about her.

How can you say Jen has no talent? She has one Oscar nod, and buzz surrounding her again for one this year. She’s beautiful too.

jennifer lawrence is the perfect katniss. anybody seen her acting? they wouldn’t nominate her for an oscar if she “sucked”, and don’t forget that she’s number one on the oscar predictions right now. plus, she’s incredibly beautiful and has an amazing body. there is NOTHING unattractive about her. when a thin actress comes along, you criticize her for being a bad role model. when jen comes along, you criticize her for being ugly and fat. shame on you, people.

@She sucked in Winters Bone: don’t you think if she sucked in winter’s bone she wouldn’t even be looked at by the academy? if she sucked, no one would look at her. but why did they offer her a nomination? because she’s fantastic and talented.

I met Maiara at the filming of the movie. She is beautiful inside and out. She was very friendly. They all seemed to be having a great time making the film.
