Rebel Wilson Might Join 'Mockingjay'

rebel-wilson-220The hilarious Rebel Wilson is getting a lot of play right now thanks to her ability to deadpan lines like "put your American sausage in my English McMuffin" and to pull off mermaid dancing, horizontal running and the like. In fact, she might just be up for a role in "The Hunger Games" franchise.

Our girl Wilson chatted it up with Buzzfeed this week about her upcoming turn as the 2013 MTV Movie Awards host and spilled the beans on her potential "Mockingjay" snare.

Branching off of the subject of a recent encounter with the indomitable Jennifer Lawrence, whom Wilson found to be "super duper nice" and surprisingly tall, she answered a question as to whether she'd like to star in the hit series with "I have had a meeting about being in 'The Hunger Games.' Yes."

Wisely, the interviewer pressed for more details, so Wilson added, "It was one of the people in the capitol. That's all I'll say ... 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.'"

Sounds like she's up for the wacky role of Tigress to us; any other guesses?

It's worth nothing that Rebel Wilson has worked with "Hunger Games" star Elizabeth Banks on both "What to Expect When You're Expecting" and "Pitch Perfect," so she's probably got a strong endorsement from the inside going for her. Not to mention, she's already got that "affected accent" the Capitol types boast.

Take that, "twig b**ches"! Juuuuuust kidding.
