Lenny Kravitz: Hunger Games' Cinna!

Lenny Kravitz has been cast as Cinna in The Hunger Games!

The 46-year-old rocker will star opposite Jennifer Lawrence, who’s playing Katniss Everdeen, as her assigned fashion stylist for the Games.

“Though he’s a mild mannered first time stylist, the designs he creates, such as the ‘Girl On Fire’ costume for the tributes’ live televised debut, are show-stopping. With odds being set, wagers being placed, and wealthy benefactors able to occasionally intervene in the games, a high public profile is tantamount to a huge advantage for any contestant entering the arena. The stunning and unique designs Cinna creates for Katniss define her public identity, and in an all too real way, could also contribute to her very survival.”

ARE YOU EXCITED to see Lenny Kravitz in The Hunger Games?

    They’re both WAY too old for those parts. Lenny especially. Reread the books people.

    Umm I was picturing Cinna to have like a gay flair to him. Whatever, it seems like none of the actors who have been cast so far are how I would have imagined them to be.

    I love Lenny Kravitz but I thought Cinna was supposed to look pretty normal :/

    But whatever, they chose JLaw for Katniss, the cast is already messed up.

    (No hatin’ on JLaw, it’s just that she doesn’t look like Katniss AT ALL, even if she went brunette and now everyone loves her)

    I loved the casting of Jennifer. I was confused/angry with the casting of Peeta/Gale. By the time Haymitch casting rolled around I was indifferent to everything. But this? I think my head is about to explode.

    IKR! I can’t get past the fact that they are TOO OLD. Well I can swallow that Cinna is gonna be older, but Katniss shouldn’t be! she’s the main character, they should’ve at least got her right.

    @melannie: So since Lenny isn’t gay the character can’t have a gay flair?

    I don’t think Cinna’s age matters nearly as much as the trio’s ages. He has a rock-and-roll look. It isn’t exactly like the books, but he looks like a rebel. I actually thought he was really solid in Precious. I think he’ll be good.

    SO unexpected. I always imagined Cinna to be quite small and skinny looking. I think I kinda like this casting though. It’s different.

    Myu Says:

    Honestly, I thought Cinna was a white guy. :\ No offence to Lenny or others out there, but I always thought of him as kind of a pale guy, gold eye liner, dark hair, really thin. Kinda hipster-ish. With a bit of a subtle gay flair to him. This is too weird for me. I don’t particularly like this choice in casting. And it’s upsetting because Cinna’s my favourite character.

    MJ Says:

    I’m not saying that he should’ve been cast in the role, but as far as physical appearance and style, I pictured Cinna as Johnny Weir, so Lenny is pretty much a complete 180 from there…

    Kayla Says:

    @drew: it says in the books that Cinna is conservative in his appearance in comparison to the other wild people of the Capitol. It never says, nor implies, that his physical appearance is “rebel-like.”

    lenny would have been a good choice.. like 20 years ago… the dude’s in his 40s, cinna is only supposed to be a little bit older than katniss….its only his first styling job for the hunger games and katniss is surprised when she realises how young he actually is!
    i’m just going to go some work, try and get my mind off the fact that cillian murphy didn’t take out the role. seriously guys, i’m so depressed.

    I’m so not glad to see him as Cinna. Cinna is one of my favorite characters, I was waiting for him so impatiently and now, what I see ? Lenny Kravitz. He doesn’t suit at all ! I was seeing Cinna like a skinny, young, white man,… I’m so angry !
    The cast is a big joke. Peeta, Katniss… Re read the book ! But I trust them, especially Jennifer Lawrence, It will certainly look good..
    I just don’t understand why they just took famous actors and actresses… I mean, Hunger Games has already many fans. They don’t need celebrities for the movie’s success.

    WAHAHAHAHA I DIDN’T SEE THIS COMING there are so many better actors out there who could’ve been perfect for this role (and i’m not just talking about cinna, peeta as well)

    jergins Says:

    This makes no sense to me… Cinna to me was short, skinny, Filipino (i don’t why) but something Asian, and young..
