An Oscar nominee has landed a pivotal supporting role in The Hunger Games.
Stanley Tucci (The Devil Wears Prada, Burlesque, Easy A) will come on board the beloved trilogy as Caesar Flickerman, the host of the title event and the man responsible for interviewing Katniss, Peeta and company in front of the viewing audience.
A relatively harmless character in the grand scheme of the Capitol, Flickerman is a flamboyant individual, making Tucci the ideal fit. He joins Wes Bentley as the two actors most recently named to the cast.
We’ll still awaiting word on two of the most vital roles of all: President Snow and Haymitch.
