Castings news from The Hunger Games has been coming in all week. So it wouldn't feel like Friday unless we could end the week on another actor's name being added. Paula Malcomson has been cast as Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) and Primrose Everdeen's(Willow Shields) mother.
The actress is probably best known for her role as Amanda Graystone in Caprica, Syfy's Battlestar Galactica prequel.
Malcomson has also starred in The Green Mile, A.I. Artificial Intelligence and more recently in Fringe and Sons of Anarchy.
This week, we saw the casting announcements of Thresh, Rue, Primrose, Glimmer and Marvel. And there was news of Elizabeth Banks possibly joining the cast of The Hunger Games as Effie Trinket, the hair-color changing, District 12 escort who, in Suzanne Collins' dystopian novel, brings the forced contestants to the televised death-match known as the Hunger Games. Though that news hasn't been confirmed by Liongates. Much of the casting news has breaking on the movie's Facebook page.
Also starring in The Hunger Games is Josh Hutcherson as Peeta Mellark and Liam Hemsworth as Gale Hawthorne. Gary Ross is directing. Posted 04.22.11 by reelz
