This is one of our favorite characters from the series, and we're SO excited that such a legend in his own right is taking on the role in the film!
Lenny Kravitz recently opened up about taking on the role of Cinna, the stylist and quiet mentor of Jennifer Lawrence's character in the adaptation of The Hunger Games, and explains that he was immediately drawn to the role after reading the script for the film, directed by Gary Ross!
"I thought it was really good storytelling. I'm very much into stories. The character was interesting. I like [director Gary Ross's] previous work. And I said, 'Yeah, let's go,' [Cinna]'s very streamlined, he's very quiet. He knows what he's doing. He's confident. He's got a big heart. I just liked the way he moved – very smooth."
Well, we're happy to hear he has such a grasp on the character, and we cannot WAIT to see him - and the rest of this immensely talented cast - in action when the flick is released!
Now is it March yet?!
