Lenny Kravitz cast as Cinna in 'Hunger Games'

rsz_tbd-lennykravitz052511.jpgCasting for the first movie in The Hunger Games trilogy continues, with Lenny Kravitz getting the nod to play fashion stylist Cinna. That's right, Katniss Everdeen, it's time to get tattoos and nose rings.

"When I saw Lenny's work in Precious, I was just knocked out," director Gary Ross told the Hollywood Reporter. "It was quiet and strong and understated and open-hearted: all qualities which define this character." Cinna's flamboyant designs help Katniss win favor in the competition, and we know Lenny can do flamboyant.

Jennifer Lawrence stars as the lead with Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth in Suzanne Collins' sci-fi trilogy about post-apocalyptic teens forced to fight to the death for sport. Or, as we call it in these pre-apocalypse days, NCAA football.
