Rebel Wilson — hilarious Pitch Perfect star and upcoming host of the MTV Movie Awards — talked to BuzzFeed about a bunch of topics, including Jennifer Lawrence and The Hunger Games.
"I met her at a party and she was super-duper nice," Rebel said of J.Law. "She's really quite tall. Which I found — I don't know if you get that impression when you see her in movies, but she's quite tall. Yeah, and she's just really nice and I love The Hunger Games and I can't wait for the new one to come out.
Rebel was asked if we'd ever see her in one of the Hunger Games movies. "Um, seriously, I have had a meeting about being in The Hunger Games. Yes." What district? "It was one of the people in the Capitol. That's all I'll say. ... Yeah, because there aren't a lot of roles open, because they've all already been cast, but that would be awesome. I'd love to be in The Hunger Games."
The second film, Catching Fire, is reportedly in post-production and comes out this November. So she may be too late for that one. Some fans started speculating that Rebel could be cast as Tigris for the third installment, Mockingjay. Tigris is a former major Hunger Games stylist who later became a shopkeeper in the Capitol selling fur-lined clothes. Her appearance was altered to look like a tiger.
It’s easy to see Rebel playing a role like that, so … it’s possible! We’ll have to wait and see.
