One is an Academy Award-winning actress and the other is a blue puppet, but Jennifer Lawrence and Cookie Monster have at least one thing in common – they both star in adaptations of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire this week!

While Lawrence will hit theaters strong-willed heroine Katniss Everdeen in big screen adaptation of the hit book on Friday, Sesame Street will air a segment parodying the popular book starring Cookie Monster as Cookieniss Evereat on Thursday.

In the PBS children's program version, Cookiniss must complete patterns and learn healthy eating habits to win "The Hungry Games" along side her companions Tick-Tock Lady, Finnicky, and Pita (a bread version of Josh Hutcherson's Peeta Mellark).

"We never knew what it was, a kind of social anxiety," reveals the Catching Fire star. "I went to see a shrink, nothing worked."
