Jeffrey Wright will be playing Beetee, the last important character in the Hunger Games sequel, Catching Fire. Beetee is one of the returning tributes in the 75th Hunger Games Quarter Quell that uses a special sort of technology during the games to compete. Wright joins the likes of Jena Malone, Sam Claflin, and Amanda Plummer in the sequel.
In other news, production has began for the sequel and will be in theaters by November 22, 2013. To celebrate the start of production, Lionsgate is holding a special contest for fans in which twelve fans will be able to tour the production set. All you need to do to enter is upload a thirty second video with a question for one of the cast members or play their Facebook game (you can read all of the info of their contest here). So enter the contest, ask the cast weird questions on my behalf, and come back and tell me if you win so we can share your glory. I believe in our weirdness!
