Lenny Kravitz To Play Cinna


Everytime I do a Hunger Games post or mention it or show a picture, I feel like I am turning into Ted Casablanca. Talk about going from full-time Twilight to full-time Hunger Games all at once. Wow. As soon as Twilight finished filming he kind of threw them under the bus didn't he? Does anyone think Ted has actually read the books?

Anyway, this one was too good to pass up. For those of you who are Hunger Games fans, I think Cinna was a crucial part. Well, it turns out the producers did a piece of incredible casting. Lenny Kravitz. It makes sense when you think about it after, but who was the one who said, "You know what, we should have Lenny Kravitz in?" Brilliant. The thing I love about the casting of this movie is they did not go entirely no name. They found actors and actresses who could act. They might not have been in much, but there will be actual acting involved. They are trying to make movies and not just satisfy fans by making any movie.

So excited about these movies!
I agree - the casting has been inspired - though I would have loved RDJ or John C. Reilly as Haymitch.

Just bought the books this past week. One of my kids is reading them now, and then I'll read 'em. There was a profile of the upcoming movie in EW recently, too.

I hope that the movie is accurate to the book.That type of book could be done really badly. Hopefully it will be like Twilight where it was exactly like book.

I think Lenny is a great choice for Cinna, although I would have certainly never thought of him!

I'm in the vicinity of where filming is taking place and I convinced my girlfriend to send her two daughters to the casting call and one of them got picked to be Prim's double! So excited!

I have liked all the casting decisions thus far...

I dont like the Josh Hutcherson as Peeta, I would rather have Liam as Peeta and Josh as Gale.

I love the Lenny/Cinna and can you imagine him and Elizabeth Banks (Effie) working together? So fun.

I guess I need to read the books.

Pookie said...

i don't give a crap about this role...i just wanna know who took away his hotness?

Cancan said...

So great. I pictured Cinna being like Miss J. I think LK will be great.

pomme said...

i only hope t will be better than TWILIGHT because the TWILIGHT movies are so shitty : the actors looks like if they just smoke booze or unmotived and the directing is very mehh

dancersmom said...

Fun? No....Hot.....He is So Hot.

Lila said...

Now I need to read the books! This is not a flattering pic of Lenny at all. I'm not one to zoooon over anyone, but Lenny Kravitz does it for me in a serious way...

Don't care about anything Twilight or vampire crap, but Enty, Ted was all pro twilight for the hits. Lainey did the same. I think at one time she posted an entire page of Robwhatshisname drinking a starbucks. 30 goddamn pics of him drinking coffee. Everyday was about Lainey fellating the Twihards, then bitching about them in the next post. That's about when she went downhill, come to think about it. Thanks for never cowtailing to the masses Ent :)

what? no, I never pictured anyone like Lenny for Cinna.
I was thinking more along the lines of Hugh Dancy.

This shall certainly be interesting though.

cibele said...

Leah - I thought the same too. And I think some other people thought about Hugh too. That's weird and coincidental.
