It now looks as though they have found their man for the part of Beetee with the newly added likes of actor Jeffrey Wright. His character is known to fans as “Volt”, a District 3 winner who is technological talent of sorts.
‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ is due to hit theaters on November 22nd 2013. The second installment that will be helmed by Francis Lawrence will resume just as “Katniss Everdeen has returned home safe after winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games along with fellow tribute Peeta Mellark. Winning means that they must turn around and leave their family and close friends, embarking on a “Victor’s Tour” of the districts. Along the way Katniss senses that a rebellion is simmering, but the Capitol is still very much in control as President Snow prepares the 75th Annual Hunger Games (The Quarter Quell) – a competition that could change Panem forever.”
Jeffrey Wright brings with him credits that include ‘Casino Royale’, ‘Source Code’, ‘Quantum of Solace’, ‘Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close’, the TV mini-series ‘Angels in America’, among several other roles.
