Elizabeth Banks is joining the likes of Liam Hemsworth, Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson in the highly anticipated film adaptation of the sci-fi novel The Hunger Games.

The 40-Year-Old Virgin actress, 37, broke the news on Twitter.

"I can now confirm I'm EFFIE TRINKET in The Hunger Games," Banks wrote. "So excited!"

Always on time, Effie is very strict about manners. But despite her seemingly serious demeanor, she has bright pink hair.
