When musician Lenny Kravitz was cast as Cinna in Liongate's highly anticipated adaptation of The Hunger Games, fans of Suzanne Collins' were surprised. However, despite Kravitz having only appeared in one movie, Precious, prior to landing the role, Hunger Games fansites immediately embraced the casting. Kravitz's Cinna has been revealed in photos, but now a new preview clip shows Kravitz meeting with protagonist Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) so he can prepare her for the Tribute parade.
For the uninitiated, The Hunger Games is set in a dystopian future where "tributes" are randomly selected to participate in a televised fight to the death called the Hunger Games. After Katniss volunteers as Tribute to save her sister Primrose (Willow Shield), she is taken to the Capitol where every Tribute is presented prior to participating in the Games. It's here where she meets Cinna, who, as he explains in the clip, wants to help her "make an impression". watch the clip >> Posted 03.07.12 by Ryan
