Stanley Tucci: Hunger Games' Caesar Flickerman!

Stanley Tucci has nabbed a role in The Hunger Games, the much anticipated film adaptation of Suzanne Collins’ smash hit novel.

The 50-year-old Devil Wears Prada actor will play Caesar Flickerman, an utterly familiar charafter to all the citizens of Panem as the host of the Hunger Games. Known for his outrageous appearance and buoyant personality, his upbeat interviews of the 24 tributes – a boy and a girl from each of the country’s 12 districts – are presented on every television in the nation. He is famous for turning any conversation around to the positive and finding humor in even the most dire circumstances.

Stanley joins Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen, Josh Hutcherson as Peeta Mellark, Liam Hemsworth as Gale Hawthorne, Wes Bentley as Seneca Crane, and Elizabeth Banks as Effie Trinket.

Still pissed over the casting of Peeta. Hunter was made for that role but Josh may suprise us..

Love Elizabeth Banks and Jennifer Lawrence, very attractive and sexy.

On the one hand, they have some great actors – you know Tucci and Lawrence will be great.

On the other hand, for me it won’t be Katniss… It will be Lawrence playing Katniss just because they are all big names.

Hunter Parrish looks the part but lets face it Josh has more experience and the stronger acting chops.

I find this all very funny since fans went beserk over Robert Pattison in Twilight they all had other actors they wanted and even over Kristin Stewart now they act like they wanted them all along.

The same will be true for Hunger Games.

Katniss is not supposed to be sexy or even that attractive.

I can’t stand all of this hate mail! JOsh Hutcherson is my dream Peeta! He can act, he’s act, and he has the total Peeta act. If you were a true HG fan you wouldn’t be dissing the movie!
Plus, Hunter Parrish would have been awful for Peeta. He can’t act! The only good thing about him would have been his hair! I can’t wait for Josh, Liam, and Jennifer to blow everyone away!

I’ve never been a fan of Josh Hutcherson and seeing him cast as Peeta broke my heart. I would have preferred someone completely different for Peeta, but what are you gonna do? They’ve already been cast, so everyone just has to suck it up and wait until they see them in action to judge…
