Toby Jones Added to The Hunger Games
05.24.11 by Ryan
Director Gary Ross' cast for the upcoming adaptation of The Hunger Games continues to grow. The latest addition is British actor Toby Jones who will play, according to Deadline, "the host/narrator of the games alongside Stanley Tucci."
While the report does not mention a character name for Jones, Tucci was cast as Hunger Games host Caesar Flickerman earlier this month, which would seem to put Jones in the part of Hunger Games announcer Claudius Templesmith. Templesmith is described as having a "large, booming voice" which makes the role an interesting fit for Jones, who voiced the house elf Dobby in the Harry Potter movies. Jones has played a variety of roles, including Karl Rove in 2008's W and will appear as Nazi scientist Armin Zola in the upcoming Captain America: The First Avenger, so the odds seem in his favor that Jones will be a great fit for Templesmith.
