- THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE
Jeffrey Wright, perhaps best known for his role as Felix Leiter in Daniel Craig's Bond films, has just joined the cast of Francis Lawrence's The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, in awesome news of the day!
Wright will play Beetee, an electronics expert from District 3 who teams up with Katniss in the Quarter Quell. The actor joins series newcomers Philip Seymour Hoffman, Sam Claflin and Jena Malone. Wright will also presumably be working closely alongside Amanda Plummer, who was cast as Beetee's loyal companion Wiress.
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire will hit theaters on November 22, 2013.
