Woody Harrelson, Stanley Tucci, and Lenny Kravitz Rumored to Have Been Offered Roles in The Hunger Games
Posted 04.29.11 by Chris
The Hunger Games rumor mill seems to be working overtime lately. Three new — and a bit surprising — names have been thrown into the mix as possible new additions to the cast of one of the most highly anticipated movies of 2012. According to several sites, including Vulture, Woody Harrelson, Stanley Tucci, and Lenny Kravitz have been offered roles in The Hunger Games.
Vulture doesn't specify which roles the three have been offered, but does make playful guesses — Harrelson could play the Head Gamemaker, Seneca Crane, while Tucci could take the persona he played in The Devil Wears Prada (and the same role he recycled in Burlesque) and play Cinna, Katniss Everdeen's (Jennifer Lawrence) stylist for the Hunger Games. As for Kravitz, whose filmography includes a role in Precious, his potential role is up in the air (Cesar Flickerman, President Snow, and Haymitch Abernathy all still remain to be cast).
But so far, there is no official word from Liongates, which to its credit has not been shy in releasing casting news, big or small. So until official confirmation, what do you think of this trio and what roles can you seen them playing?
In addition to Lawrence in the lead role, The Hunger Games stars (so far) Elizabeth Banks (Effie Trinket), Josh Hutcherson (Peeta Mellark), Liam Hemsworth (Gale Hawthorne), Willow Shield (Primrose), Paula Malcomson (mother to Katniss and Primrose), Leven Rambin (Glimmer), Jack Quaid (Marvel), Amandla Stenberg (Rue), Dayo Okeniyi (Thresh), and Ian Nelson and Kalia Prescott as the District 3 Tributes. Gary Ross is directing.
