Actress Elizabeth Banks (Hunger Games/ People Like Us) is Our Guest DJ

It’s funny how you feel like you know people just because you’ve seen them in a bunch of movies and perhaps read about them in some celebrity magazines  (not that I would look at those. Ok, only in the doctor’s office).

But when I booked Elizabeth Banks to come on the Guest DJ Project, I assumed she would be super cool, smart and funny. Low and behold, she was actually all those things. And, on top of that, she made KCRW DJ and Music Librarian Eric J Lawrence blush!

The actress, who stars in “People Like Us” with Chris Pine and got a total makeover for her role in the “Hunger Games”, takes us through songs that mark her move to Hollywood and shares some acting secrets – including the track that helps her cry on cue.

Then we see her in a whole new light as she talked about “the sexiest song she’s ever heard”. That’s where the blushing comes in. Check it all out here
