Lenny Kravitz Confirmed for Hunger Games Movie

Lenny Kravitz Confirmed for Hunger Games Movie

By Tony Graff

I`m a huge fan of the Hunger Games, and hearing the rumors and facts about who is cast for what in the movie coming out next year has kept me coming back for more.

Recently, it was confirmed that Lenny Kravitz, a rocker who has played around with acting, has agreed to the role of Cinna in the Hunger Games. He`s joining Woody Haralson, Liam Helmsworth, and Jennifer Lawrence, all headed up by Gary Ross, who`s the brain behind Seabiscuit and Pleasantville. 

Kravitz`s character, Cinna, is a rich stylist from the Capital, the ruling district of a post war America. Each year when tributes are selected from the twelve districts that lost the war, stylists are assigned to each of them to make them presentable for the Hunger Games, where the tributes fight to the death. It seems Gary Ross can see under the stubble the well-dressed and thoughtful Cinna, who takes a backwaters girl from District twelve and makes her a celebrity. 

Although the movie is in production now, and isn`t going to come out till next year, the internet is flooded with info on the Hunger Games, based on the book by Suzanne Collins. Hopes are high already for the movie to be as captivating as the book series is, and I`m on that list.
