‘Hunger Games’ (Finally) Gets Its Cinna: Lenny Kravitz Joins The Cast!

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.

Fans of the dystopian thriller know Cinna as Katniss’ (Jennifer Lawrence) thoughtful and introspective stylist responsible for her signature “girl on fire” looks.

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!?!
