Just because ‘The Hunger Games’ is already filming doesn’t mean that they have completed the casting for the film. Today they just added two more. Lenny Kravitz will play Cinna, Katniss’ stylist and Toby Jones.
This role is a big deal in the books and will mean that Kravitz will have an important role to play through all of the planned movies in the series.
Just in case you have been living in a cave, Katniss Everdeen, will be played by Jennifer Lawrence.
Here’s the official description of the role of Cinna:
Cinna is Katniss Everdeen’s assigned fashion stylist for the highly ceremonial lead up to The 74th Annual Hunger Games. Though he’s a mild mannered first time stylist, the designs he creates, such as the “Girl On Fire” costume for the tributes’ live televised debut, are show-stopping. With odds being set, wagers being placed, and wealthy benefactors able to occasionally intervene in the games, a high public profile is tantamount to a huge advantage for any contestant entering the arena. The stunning and unique designs Cinna creates for Katniss define her public identity, and in an all too real way, could also contribute to her very survival.
Toby Jones will be joining the cast as one of the narrators and hots of the games. Most of his scenes will have him acting alongside Stanley Tucci
