Lenny Kravitz has always had a unique sense of style – and now he’s taking on the role of stylist in The Hunger Games.

Kravitz will play the character of Cinna, who designs eccentric, crowd-pleasing costumes for protagonist Katniss Everdeen, to be portrayed by Jennifer Lawrence in the upcoming film, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

The musician-actor is joining the likes of Liam Hemsworth, Josh Hutcherson and Elizabeth Banks in the highly-anticipated film adaptation of Suzanne Collins’s sci-fi novel.

Kravitz’s performance as a nurse in Precious got the attention of director Gary Ross.

The first installment of the best-selling triology hits theaters in March 2012.
