No one can accuse "Hunger Games" casting director Debra Zane of predictable or boring selections for the upcoming film adaptation of Suzanne Collins' best-selling novel. Case in point: Lionsgate announced today via Twitter that rocker Lenny Kravitz will wear Cinna's gold eyeliner.
Of course, Lenny is best known as a musician (I totally have "American Woman" stuck in my head as I type this...) and the former love of Lisa Bonet (What!?! I'm a "Cosby Show" fan, okay?), but he's been stretching his acting muscles of late, having appeared in the Oscar-winning film "Precious."
I have a feeling many fans are scratching their heads over this casting but, oddly enough, Lenny is almost exactly what I imagined for the role. You see, the entire time I was reading "The Hunger Games" trilogy, I pictured the benevolent stylist looking like "10 Years Younger" glam squad guru Damone Roberts. (Random, I know.) But with the "beauty therapist" as inspiration, Lenny seems like a perfect fit, no?
I'm sure not everyone will agree with me, so leave your musings, thoughts and kudos/criticism in the comments section below!
So...President Snow is next, right? RIGHT!?!
