This past weekend's 'SNL' with Martin Short hosting and music legend Paul McCartney, certainly proved at least memorable, between the solemn cold opening paying tribute to the victims of the recent Sandy Hook tragedy, and Samuel L. Jackson accidentally cursing not once, but twice amid the sketches. So how can the series top itself again when 'SNL' returns in 2013? By recruiting 'The Hunger Games' and 'X-Men: First Class' star Jennifer Lawrence, as its next host, of course! Will she pay tribute to the 'SNL' greats?

You might want to start stocking up on canned goods and elaborate wigs, because the dystopian future of 'The Hunger Games' might be here sooner than we thought. We've just learned that The CW has greenlit a new reality survival series entitled 'The Hunt,' whose premise should seem awfully familiar to fans of the worldwide novel phenomenon. Will the odds be ever in its favor? Find out who will face 'The Hunt' inside!

It looks like we're getting a jump on that 'Hunger Games: Mockingjay' news before 'Catching Fire' has even been completed. Director Francis Lawrence, who is currently hard at work on the second entry, has just been hired to helm 'Mockingjay.'

It's sort of sad to think that no matter how much effort the Mitt Romney team puts forth in the current presidential race, there are people (a lot of people) who won't be able to look past Josh Romney's death glare. It's so chilling to look at him up close, but the more you do, the more you'll see the same lack of human emotion that turned 'The Hunger Games' gamekeeper Seneca Crane into the mastermind he was in the film.

While you guys were all worried over who would play Finnick, none of you were wondering who would play Beetee. Poor Beetee. No one cares about you. Well get ready to care because character actor Jeffrey Wright has been cast in the part for 'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.'

We've barely had time to mourn Dan Harmon's absence, but, oh... Wait a minute... What's this? 'Community' is paying tribute (get it?) to 'The Hunger Games' in the season four premiere! It may be too soon to say this, but we still have hope that the show will be awesome even without Harmon around.

A lot of directors were approached to direct 'The Hunger Games' before Lionsgate chose Gary Ross, including Kevin Tancharoen, the director of the 'Fame' remake and the 'Mortal Kombat: Legacy' television series. Yeah, that guy. Check out this video for his pitch, which would have given us a very different kind of movie.
