Paula Malcomson Cast As Katniss And Prim’s Mom In The Hunger Games

The Hunger Games casting announcements are coming fast and furious now, and it looks like they finally have one of the parentals locked into place. Today The Hollywood Reporter announced Paula Malcomson is cast in The Hunger Games as grief-stricken apothecary mother to Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss and Willow Shields as Prim. It’s Mama Everdeen’s struggles to take care of her children after the death of their coal-mining father that leads to Katniss’s first meeting with Peeta (Josh Hutcherson). Given her recent work on the sci-fi miniseries Caprica, Malcomson seems like a great choice to pad the population of futuristic Panem. Paula, gets ready to mourn your way to stardom!
