Stanley Tucci Gets Freakish for ‘The Hunger Games’

By  · Published on May 9th, 2011

According to the 114th press release about Hunger Games casting we’ve received, Stanley Tucci will be suiting up to play. He joins the other well-known cast members in what will surely be a battle to the death of not-yet-known up-and-comers by playing Caesar Flickerman.

Does anyone else think the names of the novels were created by a random name generating website?

According to the release, Flickerman is the host of the Hunger Games and has the uncanny ability to find the humor even in the darkest of scenarios. Plus, he wears a signature suit covered in light bulbs to accent his blue hair and generally weird appearance.

This is awesome. Stanley Tucci is going to dress up like Matthew Lesko and interview children who are about to die. Sold.
