‘The Hunger Games’ Could Use A Little Wes Bentley

The character of Seneca Crane in the Hunger Games series is one of the great actors’ roles. Lady Macbeth, King Lear, Hamlet, Seneca Crane, I believe is the correct order. And now he’s been cast: Wes Bentley, he of There Be Dragons, is on hopefully up to the cast of playing the character. Here’s Crane’s deal, in case you were sick when they covered The Hunger Games in high school:

“Crane is the head gamesmaker of the 74th Hunger Games, which pits teens from 12 districts in a televised battle to the death.”

Well, there you have it. Craven is the first of several adult characters in the series that have been cast, unless you count John C. Reily’s rumored involvement, which was denied by Lionsgate. Who will play the other adult characters in The Hunger Games? Second question: Does it matter? (Deadline)
