It’s official: Elizabeth Banks has landed a major role in “The Hunger Games.”
The star tweeted the news on Thursday afternoon, writing, “Yes! And I can now confirm I’m EFFIE TRINKET in @TheHungerGames. So excited!”
Banks was first linked to the role over a week ago. Trinket is the adult escort and sometimes protector of the story’s heroes — Katniss, Peeta and Gale — teenage warriors battling in a nationally broadcast fighting tournament on a post-Apocalyptic vision of Earth.
