“Hunger Games” adds Kravitz, Jones to growing cast


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: We’ve posted so many casting updates and in-development stories, one would almost assume that Gary Ross’s adaptation of Suzanne Collins’ “The Hunger Games” is due out this summer.

It isn’t. We still have to wait until March 2012, even though we’ve already seen the first look of Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen – a teenage girl engaged in a futuristic survival competition – and filled in most of the cast.

I say “most” because new pieces to the “Hunger Games” puzzle are being added to this day. For example, THR reports that rocker-actor Lenny Kravitz is joining Ross’s cast as Cinna, while Deadline adds that Toby Jones has been tapped to play the host/narrator of the game.

Both actors join the already cast Lawrence, Stanley Tucci, Josh Hutcherson, Elizabeth Banks, Woody Harrelson, Wes Bentley and Liam Hemsworth.

Do you like the casting? Are you anxious to see “Hunger Games,” and do you think Lionsgate is heading in the right direction with its adaptation? Let us know in the comments section below.
