Rocker Lenny Kravitz will be play one of my personal favorite characters in the series, stylist Cinna.
In the series, stylists are the people who prepare the tributes to appear in public and on television. Cinna becomes an ally of Katniss, and he is also the brains behind her memorable “girl on fire” look. Don’t you remember this passage?
“I want the audience to recognize you when you’re in the arena,” says Cinna dreamily. “Katniss, the girl who was on fire.” It crosses my mind that Cinna’s calm and normal demeanor masks a complete madman.
Though Kravitz certainly has style, I admit I have a hard time picturing him as Cinna. Still, Jennifer Lawrence fits the bill for Katniss (and I know some readers were initially unhappy about that casting choice), so I’m optimistic about Kravitz. Also, this isn’t his first turn in a literary role. Kravitz also played a nurse in Precious, based on Sapphire’s Push.
