Afternoon Delight: A lesbian sci-fi series called “Strange Frame,” Elizabeth Banks on her “Hunger Games” voice

 
 

Good afternoon!

A red-band clip from Charlize Theron‘s Young Adult has arrived. In the restricted video Theron says some colorful words that are NSFW so please proceed with caution.

Actress Elizabeth Banks spoke with EW about her upcoming role as Effie Trinkett in The Hunger Games. Banks described the voice she created for Trinkett as “a combination of The Philadelphia Story and Rosalind Russell in Auntie Mame. Rosalind Russell is just amazing. It’s one of my favorite performances ever. I wanted Effie to be really theatrical. I just wanted to make sure she didn’t sound too British. She needed to be a little highfalutin.” I think casting Banks as Trinkett was a brilliant idea. Is it March yet?
