Geek Tyrant rapporterar att Tim Taylor har fått en roll i "The Hunger Games" som gamekeeper. Men antagligen menar de gamemaker. Seneca Crane [spelad as Wes Bentley] är ju head gamemaker och måste ha ett team att styra över. Utifrån utdraget nedan så verkar det vara just en av de i Senecas team som Tim ska spela. Men det kan också vara alldeles riktigt att han ska spela något som kallas gamekeeper och att det alltså har skrivits en ny karaktär för filmen.

Tim Taylor cast as gamekeeper of "The Hunger Games"

"The Hunger Games" casting continues with the addition of Tim Taylor ("Possum Walk", "Archaic Redemption"), who joins the already incredibly huge cast as the Gamekeeper in the story. The Gamekeeper is described as the computer techs that control the action during the games.

Jake Vineyard säger på sin twitter [länk] att han fått rollen som Rory, Gale Hawthorne's lillebror i "The Hunger Games". Han skulle egentligen bara vara statist men hade turen att få en lite större roll.


jakeandemma03 på twitter:

By the way you should follow the official Rory (Gale's brother)... I mean, me, on twitter.


Från TheHobOrg:

The Hob: Were you hired on as an extra and then they asked you to be a slightly bigger role, with some speaking parts? Just curious how you landed the role.

Jake Vineyard: Yeah I was actually being sized up for a fitting and one of the women looked at me kinda funny then wrote "Rory - Gales bro" on a sticky note and put it on my application. Then I got a call confirming what I already guessed, I was playing Rory.


Lionsgate har inte bekräftat det här än, så betrakta det som ett rykte.

På skådespelaren Phillip Troy Linger's IMDb [länk] står det att han medverkar i "The Hunger Games" som Katniss pappa. [Spoiler!] Han kommer i så fall ha en liten, men viktig, roll i en tillbakablick där man får se hur han dog.

Lionsgate har varken bekräftat eller förnekat informationen, så än så länge klassas det här som ett rykte. IMDb har haft fel förut.

Lenny Kravitz har castats som Cinna, Katniss stylist i "The Hunger Games".

The official press release from Lionsgate:

Los Angeles, CA, May 23, 2011 - Lionsgate® and the filmmakers of "The Hunger Games" are pleased to announce that iconic musician and actor Lenny Kravitz ("Precious") has been cast in the role of Cinna in the much anticipated film adaptation of Suzanne Collins' worldwide smash hit novel.

Said director Gary Ross of the casting decision, "When I saw Lenny's work in "Precious" I was just knocked out. It was quiet and strong and understated and open hearted; all qualities which define this character. I'm really looking forward to this ride."

[...]

About Lenny Kravitz
Regarded as one of the preeminent rock musicians of our time, Lenny Kravitz has transcended genre, style, race and class into a 20-year musical career, one which revels in the rich influences of '60s and '70s soul, rock and funk. From 1999 to 2002, he won four consecutive Grammy Awards, setting a record for the most wins in the "Best Male Rock Vocal Performance" category with his single "Dig In" (previously winning for "Again", "American Woman" and "Fly Away").

In 2009, Kravitz appeared in a supporting role in the critically-acclaimed film "Precious", for which he has received a 2010 NAACP Image Awards nomination for "Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture". Kravitz and the acclaimed "Precious" cast also received a 2010 Screen Actors Guild nod for "Best Ensemble". In addition to his role in "Precious", Kravitz has also appeared in such films as "The Diving Bell" and the "Butterfly and Zoolander". Marking his first release of new material in three years, Lenny Kravitz will release his highly-anticipated ninth studio album, "Black and White America" on August 30th.

Det är blandade reaktioner bland fansen, men jag själv som alltid föreställt mig Cinna som mörkhyad är glatt överraskad över valet av skådespelare eftersom jag inte hade förväntat mig att få som jag vill. Är du nöjd med Cinna?
