The Hunger Games actress Elizabeth Banks on Tuesday night appeared on the stage of the Democratic National Convention with an unusual entrance imitating Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. She compared it to her role in the movie The Hunger Games.

The day before, Trump came onstage of the Republican National Convention amid a cloud of back-lit fog.

“Some of you know me from The Hunger Games, in which I play Effie Trinket — a cruel, out-of-touch reality TV star who wears insane wigs while delivering long-winded speeches to a violent dystopia,” she said. “So when I tuned in to Cleveland last week, I was like, ‘Hey, that’s my act.’”
