Lenny Kravitz to Play Cinna in The Hunger Games

Lenny Kravitz Cast as Cinna in The Hunger Games

The principal cast is now complete: Lenny Kravitz is set to take on the role of Cinna in The Hunger Games. Cinna is stylist to Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence), who must be primped and primed before heading into the arena to fight for life in the games. Cinna is pretty much described as funky (but more toned down than the rest of his styling team), and eventually becomes a friend and confidante to Katniss. I was envisioning someone a lot younger than Kravitz, as it's meant to be Cinna's first time styling a tribute for the games, but Kravitz should make a nice addition to the star-studded cast of The Hunger Games. Kravitz's current acting credits are limited to playing a nurse in Precious, but the rocker is nothing if not stylish. How do you feel about this news?

At first I was like, "what the what?" and now I am more than ok with it. I think he can pull it off and I am happy to see they are diversifying the cast.

Surprising news. Not how I pictured Cinna but I think it'll all work out.

This is the first casting I have been totally against. He's so not Cinna.

My heart dropped with this. My image of Cinna is so far from Kravitz, I'm being to wonder if the casting directors even read the books. I pictured an actor version of Austin Scarlett, maybe even Neil Patrick Harris, but Lenny Kravitz, not so much...

I mean, I understand that a couple of "out there" castings could work cause they are great actors, but I just never saw Cinna as this...I thought he was supposed to be more elegant and polished...and forgive me, but I don't remember him as black (African-Panemian?)...did I miss that

This movie has such a huge built in audience - I don't understand why they feel the need to stunt cast. Too many recognizable faces will take away from the story. I was excited to hear Hunger Games was going to be made into a movie, but I am less and less so with every casting announcement.
