WOODY HARRELSON

HAYMITCH ABERNATHY

Katniss’s Mentor

Tasked with playing a guy who’s both a shrewd guardian and a boozy bumbler, “it was my objective to give the character as much comedy as I could without it seeming not to fit,” Harrelson told the Los Angeles Times.

LENNY KRAVITZ

CINNA

Katniss’s Stylist

“He has a quiet intensity,” says Kravitz of Cinna. “He knows that Katniss’s image has a lot to do with her survival. It’s about creating an impression so that she’ll have confidence and also so that the viewers of the Games will like her.”

STANLEY TUCCI

CAESAR FLICKERMAN

TV Host of The Hunger Games

“We needed him to look like someone who had extreme plastic surgery-and he has a blue wig,” says Tucci of his character’s signature style. “I also wanted to have fake teeth, and we had fake noses made, but we didn’t end up using them.”

DONALD SUTHERLAND

CORIOLANUS SNOW

President of Panem

“I play Katniss’s enemy, but he doesn’t think he’s a villain,” says Sutherland, who says he prepped for the role by delving into Snow’s “heart, intellect and love of roses.”

WES BENTLEY

SENECA CRANE

Head Gamemaker

“I showed up on-set with a beard-as I always do-and our amazing makeup artist was really excited to see it,” says Bentley of his character’s sinister look. “She took three hours and shaved this amazing shape on my face.”
