The Hunger Games Adds Deadwood, Caprica Vet Paula Malcomson as Katniss's Mom

paulamalcolmson300.jpgThe Hunger Games roll call continues with today's casting bit: Irish actress Paula Malcomson will play the mother of Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) and Primrose (Willow Shields) in Lionsgate's upcoming novel adaptation. TV watchers may know Malcolmson from her extensive small screen work (Trixie from Deadwood! Amanda from Caprica! The lady that Sun shot on the boat on LOST!); she's a character actress who leaves memorable marks even in small parts, which sounds perfect for the role of Mama Everdeen -- a woman left despondent and emotionally crippled after the death of her husband.

    Don't wanna sound like a broken record, but while they're adding Deadwood cast members, Ian McShane? He could play any of these characters and make it believable. I mean, just imagine how good Francis Ford Coppola's Jack would have been w/ Mr. McShane instead of Robin Williams.
