‘Hunger Games’ Actor Thinks This NFL Star Would Dominate The Hunger Games

David Hookstead Smoke Room Editor-in-Chief

Mahershala Ali is one of the stars of the last two films of “The Hunger Games” series, and he has an interesting opinion on which NFL star would dominate the Hunger Games if they were real.

The Hunger Games are a fictional event where children fight to the death in the extremely popular book series written by Suzanne Collins.

Ali, who plays the role of Boggs, said the following when asked by USA Today which NFL player would do the best:

Because it’s a mix of athleticism and intelligence, I think Russell Wilson would be great.  He’s a smart dude and he’s athletic, even more athletic than he’s been given credit for.

It’s hard to disagree with Ali’s assessment. Wilson is one of the best players in the NFL and in his last four games has thrown 16 touchdowns and no interceptions, and Wilson’s quarterback play has the Seattle Seahawks firing on all cylinders..
