Stanley Tucci will play Caesar Flickerman in the upcoming adaptation of Suzanne Collins‘ The Hunger Games.

Here’s more from the release: “Flickerman is utterly familiar to all the citizens of Panem as the l host of the Hunger Games. Known for his outrageous appearance and buoyant personality, his upbeat interviews of the 24 tributes – a boy and a girl from each of the country’s 12 districts – are presented on every television in the nation. He is famous for turning any conversation around to the positive and finding humor in even the most dire circumstances.”
