New York Magazine’s Vulture recently released an interview with Lenny Kravitz, in which he discusses his character Cinna and what’s in store for him in ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire‘. He also reveals that the audience will see how Cinna leaves. In case you haven’t read ‘Catching Fire‘, you should know that there are spoilers below!
SPOILER ALERT, IF YOU HAVEN’T READ THE HUNGER GAMES: The book mentions your character being tortured for supporting Katniss. Will we see that on screen?
Um, I can’t say too much about it. But you will see how he leaves the story.
Personally, what do you think is the worst way to be tortured?
Oh wow — there’s trivial torture, and there’s real torture. I guess on a trivial level, you know, not being able to hear or make music. That would drive me crazy, yeah.
People have been reporting online that you’re going to play Marvin Gaye in a biopic from director Julien Temple (London: The Modern Babylon, Absolute Beginners).
I have been working with Julien, and that’s all I can say right now. We’ll be shooting next year. There’ll be more to come, information-wise, very shortly.
How do you plan to prepare for this role?
It’s hardcore, and I’m approaching with a lot of respect.
Will you have to change your singing voice?
I’m going to have to change everything. It’s going to take a lot. I wouldn’t say I’m scared, but it’s a great challenge.
