Everyone's got "Hunger Games" fever, and just because TV is our usual beat doesn't mean we're immune to it.
Since the games themselves revolve around a futuristic version of reality TV -- one where the contestants, a.k.a. tributes, must fight to the death to be the last one standing -- we got to thinking about which current TV characters would we stick our Mockingjay pins on and nominate as tributes for a TV-inspired "Hunger Games"?
Below are the craftiest, the most cunning, the strongest and the most sly 15 TV characters we nominate as tributes for the ultimate "Hunger Games" smackdown. Of course ,we're not saying we'd be fine seeing these characters perish in the arena (well, maybe a few), but we'd love to watch them battle it out.
Click through our gallery to find out why we think each character would make a strong tribute, what their special skills would be, as well as their possible downfalls. Then vote for your pick in our poll below. May the odds be ever in your favor!
