A feast of Hunger Games casting news

Hunger Games? Feast? Get it?

Three more important roles in Hunger Games have been officially cast. Effie Trinket, the effervescent Games coordinator for District 12, will be played by Elizabeth Banks. Imagining her huffing over tardiness in a pink wig is very fitting, so she seems like a good choice. The roles of the two Tributes from District 11 have both been given to unknowns. Thresh, the massive, threatening male Tribute, will be played by Dayo Okeniyi, who I can only hope is very tall and imposing. The twelve-year-old female Tribute, Rue, will be played by Amanda Stenberg. As Rue is one of the most important characters in Hunger Games, Stenberg must be one heck of an actress.

While I could eventually see the choices for Katniss, Peeta, and Gale, these are the first casting choices that seem perfect on looks alone. Only one more year until we see if their performances can match!
