Elizabeth Banks: Her Best Hair?

Born Elizabeth Irene Mitchell on February 10, 1974, actress (and occasional CNBC anchor on 30 Rock), Elizabeth Banks is helping me through a tough time…


You see, I have Hunger Games fever right now — BAD. I stayed up way past my bedtime last night re-reading the first book, finished it, and then started on the second one, and now while I’m reading the books, I picture the characters as the actors who are playing them in the new movie (Elizabeth plays Effie Trinket).

The only one who doesn’t fit for me is Woody Harrelson as Haymitch. I don’t know… I see Haymitch as more of a Robert Downey Jr. type, especially when he looks like this, but a little bit scragglier and undoubtedly stinky.

This is kinda weird, but sometimes I get Elizabeth and Parker Posey confused. Is that just me? As a matter of fact, I only just now figured out while reading about Elizabeth that she was the actress who starred in the Spider-Man movies (worked for J. Jonah Jameson at the Daily Bugle).

This whole time I thought that was Parker. Seriously, I can’t be the only one who sees a resemblance.

I even remember telling people, “Wasn’t Parker Posey great in Spider-Man!?”

LOL! Sorry, ladies. For what it’s worth, I’m a doofus, and I think you’re both great. 🙂

Elizabeth also has what looks like a fun recurring role on 30 Rock playing Jack’s business savvy girlfriend, CNBC anchor Avery Jessup.

Man, I love that show… And oddly, so does Tabs. He’ll even come down from upstairs to sit on the floor in front of the TV when it’s on.

I’m really looking forward to seeing Elizabeth in The Hunger Games next week. I just hope, hope, hope the movie lives up to, or at least gets close, to my expectations.

Which of Elizabeth's hairstyles do you like best?

  1. Oooo I didn’t know she is the one who plays Effie Trinket! It’s kinda hard to figure that out with all the makeup she has in the movie!

    I’m keeping my fingers crossed the movie will not disappoint. After all, the books are WAY good!

    She is gorgeous anyway she wears her hair! yes?

  3. Katherine G says:

    I believe she was also the actress that played Marcella Howard in the movie Seabiscuit (I’m a total horse buff). She dyed her hair very dark or wore a dark wig for that movie though, took me a while to recognize her.

    I picked number 4.

    I’m not a big fan of Elizabeth, but I’m sure she’ll do fine as Effie.

    I think Woody is a great choice for Haymitch. I can totally hear his voice in my head. I think that’s b/c that’s who I imagine Woody to really be. He’s a bit off just like Haymitch, it seems.

    I’m disappointed in Lenny Kravitz, actually. Not a terrible choice, but I thought that, at least his look would’ve been more flamboyant. He looks too plain for Cinna. Well, we’ll see. I’m going to a midnight showing on Thursday. 😀

    So excited for the movies! I see the similarity to Parker Posey….personally I always get her mixed up with January Jones! I guess she just has a familiar face.

  6. Jeannine says:

    I wasn’t on board with The Hunger Games until I found out Lenny Kravitz was playing Cinna. Oh, you bet I was on board then!

  7. saby says:

    Robert Downey Jr is soooo hot, am I the only one who thinks that?

  8. Marilyn says:

    I love Elizabeth Banks! I’ve seen her in a lot of comedy and it seems like she’s branching out to more serious roles. I’m excited to see her as Effie!

  9. Amanda says:

    It’s not just you – I get them confused A LOT.

    cant wait to see Effie in action!
