Harrelson, Tucci and Kravitz offered Hunger Games roles

4 years agoby:

Alright, now that we've casted a boatload of children for THE HUNGER GAMES, it's time to cram a few adults in there. Elizabeth Banks is the first grown-up that's been added, but now offers have gone out to three different actors to join the cast.

Woody Harrelson, Stanley Tucci and Lenny Kravitz have all been offered parts, with Harrelson's role that of Head Gamemaker, Seneca Crane. Sounds like a bad guy to me.

Tucci and Kravitz's potential roles are unclear, and really, Lenny Kravitz? I know he was in PRECIOUS, but is acting his main gig now? It seems like I write about this movie every other day?

For those who have read the books, is it worth the hype? Children fighting to the death for food sounds good to me, as I'm a big BATTLE ROYALE fan, but is there a lot more to it than pure mayhem? 

Extra Tidbit: Is something up with Kravitz's eye, or is it just this picture? It would explain why in 99% of photos he's wearing sunglasses.

I've just started the second book. I was concerned that they would be like Battle Royale/Running Man, but there really is a lot more to them. Harrelson would be better serve as Haymitch and Tucci would be great as Cinna. Kravits??

A definite yes to Harrelson and Tucci. Kravitz, not so much. There are better actors out there for the role than a singer who has been in one overrated movie.

I have never read the books, but the story and cast have me very excited.

They all seem like inspired choices. It could be cool to see them in the film. So far I'm enjoying their casting choices. I hope my K-Bell gets the role she wants too, then I'll be satisfied haha.

President Snow

I can't remember if he had hair or not, but Tucci could play him well...

I think Tucci or Kravitz are likely up for Cinna.

Well, not a bad guy . . .

Seneca is the costume designer for Katniss and partner in the Games, who ends up being an ally. But geez, in the books he's a very young, flamboyant, delicate, and definitely gay character. Think sophisticated but intelligent "Project Runway" contestant. BAD casting here.

Tucci is probably up for "Haymitch", an aloholic former HG winner who mentors Katniss and Peeta. Good choice. Maybe "President Snow". Also good choice.

You're thinking of Cinna. He's Katniss' ally who is flamboyantly gay but tough as well. Seneca is a totally different character.

No biggie =]

When I saw Kravitz in the headline I assumed it was Zoe since she seems to be persuing the acting career
