danny elfmanHow awesome must you be if you’re known as T-Bone? I’d imagine it's fairly awesome considering I’ve never met anyone named T-Bone, but that definitely sounds like the kind of person I’d want to hang out with.

Anyway, T-Bone Burnett and Danny Elfman have agreed to collaborate on the score and soundtrack on the Hunger Games movie. Elfman’s involvement was rumored last week but the official announcement was released today along with the news of Burnett’s participation. Awesome sauce? An extra helping of it. Between the two of them, they’ve got award nominations out the a-hole and more street cred than you can count. Burnett won an Oscar for his song “The Weary Kind” in Crazy Heart where his collaborated gushed to his wife “I love you more than rainbows,” and Elfman voiced the singing Jack in The Nightmare Before Christmas (oh, and he scored that film and about a MILLION other movies too). And now these two are teaming up for a movie about a brunette Jennifer Lawrence fighting for her life. Awwww yeah.
