I bet Wes Bentley is tried of people asking him to film paper bags blowing in the wind, but that won’t stop me from bringing it now! After all, it was super creepy and American Beauty was too melodramatic for it’s own good so he deserves it. Anyway, Bentley is really good at being creepy which will make his turn as Seneca Crane that much more enjoyable in The Hunger Games. For those in the know, Crane isn’t that big of a character in the first book, but becomes a bigger figure in the second and third (which will definitely get adaptations because this first movie will be making a fartillion dollars in the box office). It’s the most beautiful thing in the world.
The Hunger Games stars Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Elizabeth Banks and a ton of other people. Gary Ross is directing from a script by Billy Ray and the film hits theaters on March 23rd, 2012.
