If it weren't for the simple swipe of his signature gold eyeliner, you'd almost never know that Cinna hails from the garish Capitol of Panem.
But then again, as fans of The Hunger Games know, Cinna (played by Lenny Kravitz in the film adaptation of Suzanne Collins's hit trilogy) is anything but a stereotypical Capitol citizen.
Assigned to assist Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) as they tour the districts in Catching Fire, his assistance is needed more than ever.

The Hunger Games has found its Finnick Odair.
Sam Claflin, one of Hollywood's up-and-coming stars, has landed the coveted role in Catching Fire, the second Hunger Games movie, which begins shooting this fall for a late 2013 release.
Like Odair, Claflin, 26 – last seen in Snow White and the Huntsman – is a prodigy, seemingly skilled at anything and everything he tries.

Though the location of the Hunger Games set was kept secret for six months during filming, fans of the franchise who want to experience life in Panem for themselves now have the opportunity to do just that.
The blockbuster film has provided a boon to the tourism industry in North Carolina, where it was shot, according to Friday's Today show. Fans are flocking to locations such as the Henry River Mill Village, an abandoned mill town outside Charlotte, which is home to the set pieces that were used as Katniss's house and Peeta's bakery.

Katniss Everdeen's (Jennifer Lawrence's) life was difficult enough before she was forced to try to kill 23 other children on national television.
Fatherless and starving in District 12, the mining center of dystopian future world Panem, she takes her little sister Prim's (Willow Shields's) place as a tribute, fighting to the death in an elaborate spectacle broadcast as a reality show.
To add poison to the sting, Katniss is expected to kill her own teammate, Peeta (The Kids Are All Right's charming Josh Hutcherson), a sweet boy who has a crush on her.

It's the pink hair that did it.
For Elizabeth Banks, playing Effie Trinket in the upcoming screen version of The Hunger Games first clicked into place thanks to the character's signature cotton-candy coif.
"I would be in the hair and makeup trailer and I was Elizabeth, and then the wig went on and very suddenly I was Effie," says Banks, 37. "Every day I would have that aha moment, like, 'We did it! We found Effie!' "
In the best-selling The Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins, Effie serves as a publicity agent of sorts for the Games, a cruel arena battle that pits youths, called "tributes," against each other in a televised fight to the death. The movie opens March 23.

"It's 24 of us," Jennifer Lawrence, playing fierce and feisty heroine Katniss Everdeen, says in the movie's trailer, which debuted Monday on Good Morning America. "One comes out."
The peek at the film adaptation of the best-selling series, which follows Everdeen's post-apocalyptic journey through the ultimate televised game of life-or-death, offers a glimpse into the dark and dreary world of District 12.

The PEOPLE have spoken! And although they voted for Hunter Parrish, 23, to take on the role of Peeta in the big-screen adaptation of Suzanne Collins's wildly successful sci-fi story The Hunger Games, that part will be going to the just-as-hotly tipped Josh Hutcherson (The Kids Are All Right).
Hutcherson's lovesick baker-boy will compete for the affections of Katniss (to be portrayed by Jennifer Lawrence, 20) with her strapping hunting partner Gale, to be played by 21-year-old Liam Hemsworth, a.k.a. Miley Cyrus's on-again, off-again beau).
