Elizabeth Banks lands 'Hunger Games' role: Effie Trinket
The Effie role, about which Miss Banks so excitedly screams in all caps, is described as an "insufferable" escort for participants in the novel's sport, which is a hunt for food in a cold and scary futuristic North America.
On "30 Rock," Banks has a recurring role as the wife of Alec Baldwin's Jack Donaghy. She'll also be seen in this year's "My Idiot Brother" opposite Paul Rudd.
