Panem has found its Beetee!
Jeffrey Wright has been cast as the eccentric tribute in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. Hailing from District 3, Beetee earns the nickname “Volts” because of his electronics expertise.
Jeffrey is best known for his Tony® Award in 1994 for his work in Tony Kushner’s Pulitzer Prize-winning epic “Angels in America” and reprised his “Angels” role in HBO’s 2003 mini-series adaptation of the play, earning both a Golden Globe® and an Emmy® for his groundbreaking performance. Since then he has played memorable roles in films as diverse as BASQUIAT, SOURCE CODE, CASINO ROYALE and QUANTUM OF SOLACE, W, SYRIANA, and CADDLIAC RECORDS. Wright can next be seen with Mark Walhberg, Russell Crowe and Katherine Zeta-Jones in Allen Hughes’ political thriller BROKEN CITY.
