Paula Malcomson Joins ‘The Hunger Games’

Lionsgate’s cast of The Hunger Games has been multiplying like rabbits these past few weeks, and so far includes Jennifer Lawrence (Winter’s Bone), Josh Hutcherson, possibly Elizabeth Banks, and a few others.

Today the studio announced the addition of Paula Malcomson (Deadwood, Caprica) as Katriss and Prim Everdeen’s mother.

Taking place in post-apocalyptic America, The Hunger Games introduces 16-year-old heroine Katniss Everdeen, who must participate in a fight-to-the-death annual event called the Hunger Games. The battles are televised, and pit youths from each of the Capitol’s 12 Districts against each other.
