Is Tara Reid trying to steal Elizabeth Banks’ Hunger Games gig?

Yesterday, Reid tweeted a photo of herself wearing a blonde wig and powder makeup and dressed in a shocking pink ensemble, a look that bears resemblance to the character Effie Trinket — the role played by Banks in the big screen adaptation of the book series — in a scene from the first Hunger Games movie. Reid made no mention of Effie or The Hunger Games, captioning the photo with: “Today at work shooting my new untitled film produced by jamie kennedy its gonna be super cool!”

Perhaps Reid is ripping off Effie’s signature look for a role in a Not Another Teen Movie-style spoof?
