Lenny Kravitz has joined the cast of 'The Hunger Games'.
The singer - who most recently appeared in dark drama 'Precious' alongside Gabourey Sidibe - has been signed up by director Gary Ross to play the part of Cinna, a fashion stylist who has the job of styling lead character Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence).
Gary said: "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."
'The Hunger Games' is based on the Suzanne Collins novel series of the same name, and tells the tale of a future world where the population are selected to take part in a reality TV show battle to the death.
