She’s had her fair share of success in Tinseltown, and now Ashlee Simpson is pumped that her main man Evan Ross scored a huge job as part of the cast of “Mockingjay Parts 1 & 2.”

The “Pieces of Me” singer gushed over Ross’ “Hunger Games” Messalla role in a recent interview, sharing, “I’m so excited!”

Evan also noted, "It's mind-blowing. When they called I was like, 'Are you kidding?' They said, 'You got Hunger Games. You want to do it?' I was like, 'Is that a question?'"

Ross also sang the praises of his newfound costar Jennifer Lawrence- "She's amazing. She's so sweet. She's so down to earth. She's on set earlier than we are."

"I'm obviously not as trained as Liam Hemsworth and all of them. They're a lot bigger and stronger than me, but at the same time I've been trying to keep fit."
