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.
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.
