Watch Now! Lenny Kravitz Featured In New “Hunger Games” Clip


We are only a few weeks away from the "Hunger Games" movie where Lenny Kravitz will star in the movie as Cinna, a trusted friend of Katniss.

Lenny Kravitz was cast by director Gary Ross for his role in "Precious", linking Lenny's work in the movie.

Lenny had this to say about the offer to Interview magazine;

“(Director) Gary (Ross) saw Precious and said that he liked the character of Nurse John, so he thought I’d be right for the role in Hunger Games, since Cinna is somebody who is looking out for somebody and is a support figure, too… So he called me… He said, ‘Hi, I’m making this movie called The Hunger Games. I think you’d be great. If you want it, you’ve got the part.’ No audition. I was really flattered.”

Although flattered, Lenny did not sign up for the movie just yet.  Why?  He wanted to read the book first.  After he read it, he then said yes.
Check out the clip of Lenny as Cinna with Katniss above and let us know what you think.-DocFB

  1. hmmm and yum yum! Lenny Kravitz is the ONLY reason I will see the Hunger Games. I love Lenny as an actor. His music is cool 2

  2. When I first discovered Lenny Kravitz would be playing Cinna, I thought it was an interesting casting choice. I can see from this clip that Lenny has done an excellent job of portraying the down to earth, compassionate qualities of Cinna, and I’m very happy to see him wearing the gold eye liner! Thanks for posting clip.
