Rebel Wilson Says She’s Been In Talks For A ‘Hunger Games’ Role

You guys. YOU GUYS. Is this really happening? MTV Movie Awards star Rebel Wilson is maybe possibly in talks for a role in “The Hunger Games” franchise? Are all the most wonderful pop cultural things in the world colliding at once?! OH MY GOD WHAT IS AIR.

Okay, backtracking a bit: Basically, Rebel had a long chat with BuzzFeed—which is fabulous, you should read the whole thing, and not just because she spends all kinds of time talking about her upcoming gig at the MTV Movie Awards. (Did you know that she’s besties with the Zefron and he’s got amazing rap skills?) But the part that made us go “Whaaaaaat?!” comes about halfway through, where Rebel mentions having met Jennifer Lawrence and loving “The Hunger Games,” and BuzzFeed is all, “Hey, would we ever see you in ’The Hunger Games’?”

Rebel’s reply:

“Um, seriously, I have had a meeting about being in ’The Hunger Games.’ Yes… It was one of the people in the Capitol. That’s all I’ll say.”

That’s all? Dude. That’s enough. We’re flipping out. And mentally making our way through every Capitol moment in “Mockingjay” to try and figure out where Rebel might fit in. Is there any role that could use her comic talents? Could she be a co-anchor alongside Caesar Flickerman? Let’s talk about this for the rest of the day.

Will Jennifer Lawrence get her silver lining in the form of a Golden Popcorn? Which beefcake will sizzle in our brand-new Best Shirtless Performance category?
