Lenny Kravitz Lands Role in The Hunger Games

by at . Comments

Lenny Kravitz has landed one of the few major roles remaining in The Hunger Games.

The musician, who impressed audiences with his range in Precious, will portray Cinna in the big screen version of this novel. That character is the personal stylist for Jennifer Lawrence's Katniss, a resident of the Capitol who grows more important, and sympathetic, as the story moves along.

"When I saw Lenny's work in Precious, I was just knocked out," director Gary Ross said. "It was quiet and strong and understated and open-hearted: all qualities which define this character."

Despite joining a blockbuster whose cast includes Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Elizabeth Banks, Woody Harrelson, and Stanley Tucci, Kravitz isn't done rocking:

His next album, "Black and White America," comes out on August 30.

I'm interested in seeing how he'll make my favorite character out to be but honestly I'm a little skeptical at his ability to bring Cinna to life.
