Adam Lambert loves 'The Hunger Games': Could he play Cinna?

adam-lambert_240.jpg Image Credit: Larry Marano/Getty ImagesAs reported by the Hunger Games Trilogy Fansite, Adam Lambert has tweeted his love of The Hunger Games: “Anyone have any great BOOK recommendations? The Hunger Games Trilogy was great!” Coincidentally, the Fansite had a poll over the summer which asked if fans would like to see Lambert play Katniss’ stylist Cinna. I always pictured Cinna a little bit older, wiser, and quietly freaky-looking. (Especially since Suzanne Collins explicitly notes that Cinna is a minimalist dresser. Glambert might be a better fit for, say, Flavius.)

    i can see him as flavius but def NOT cinna! i want to see cillian murphey as him

    • strickens_girl

      Agreed. I’d love to see Adam as Flavius and Cillian Murphy as Cinna would be brilliant.

      • Anon

        I’d watch Adam as any character in any vehicle. He’s millennium Elvis and needs to get into films.

      • Krystal

        how AWESOME would Cillian Murphy be?! Great suggestion!

      • tori

        Really? I’m in the middle of the trilogy and I always picture Hugh Dancy when I read parts with Cinna.

    • jay

      UGHHH, NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Please Cinna wasn’t fat. Adam is WAY to queenish to play Cinna, yeah, Adam is that much of a queen.

  • KC

    Hmph. I was thinking he was into remaking They Crying Game.

  • KC

    THE Crying Game damned no edit function. EPIC FAIL.

    • Lila

      Har har. You’re funny. NOT!

  • Sarah

    I agree that I pictured Cinna to be a bit older as well. Flavius could work.

  • Mary

    NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! I imagined Cinna to be played by someone like Jesse Williams. He’s got those blue eyes that really convey a quiet mystery.

  • trashytvlover

    NO! but only because I want him to play Magnus Bane when they finally make the Mortal Instuments Trilogy…he is the perfect fit for that role!

    • fooballmom

      OMG they are going to do the Mortal Instruments? YAY! LOVE those books!

      • Melissa

        OMG! Love The Mortal Instruments!! Probably my favorite book series ever! And he would be an AWESOME Magnus Bane!!! Good Call!

      • fooballmom

        Agreed! He would be the best Magnus Bane! Perfect fit for Adam Lambert! Wonder if he has read the Mortal Instruments!

    • Shay

      I could definitely see adam lambert as a Magnus Bane!!!

  • Heather

    NO, he would NOT be a good fit for Cinna, I’m fine with him for Flavius, but don’t mess with Cinna!

    • Mist

      I TOTALLY agree. cinna shouldn’t be messed with…

  • stella

    Absolutely NOT for Cinna! I picture someone with more wisdom and more reserved.

    • Kiki

      I think it’s an ACTING job, so Lambert could probably manage to ACT more reserved and the script gives him wisdom.

  • K

    I actually think this could be good; and I don’t see the point of the dressing comment, since the costume designers have no requirement to adapt Adam’s dressing style to fit the character. But in general, I did see the role as being a bit older.

  • nodnarb

    I don’t see him as Cinna at all. But I do like the idea of playing Let’s Cast Adam Lambert in a Movie! Gotta be something with singing. And glitter. Lots of glitter.

  • ship

    How about an actor? Someone who can, you know, act. That might help fill out the role.

    • Babe

      He was in theater for a number of years, not all of them musical related, so presumably he can act at least a little.

    • staciegirlie

      @Ship says, “How about an actor?”

      Adam IS an actor, LOL!

      • dasfe

        uh hmm…I don’t understand the comparisons?,….”I always pictured Cinna a little bit older, wiser, and quietly freaky-looking.” ??? Uh I never thought i seed Brad Pitt as a 60 year man(The Curious Case of Benjamin Button)…it called makeup costume and acting…man! Lambert stage persona is an act so he would not look as he does on stage. He rarely dresses like that in real life…So i guess he did a good job with acting if u think that how he dresses daily…..? quiet freak, loud freak, hee what’s the difference… shrug..
        i say why not?

    • Bethany

      Um, he is an actor. He was an actor before he was a musician…

    • Shay

      Adam Lambert has experience in acting. He just wasn’t in movies. Look it up. He could definitely pull it off.

  • Blair

    NO, NO and NO. Probably Adam Brody but not Adam Lambert.

  • Blah

    okay seriously who the heck writes these posts? Lambert as Cinna?

    • Ever-Lazily

      IKR??? Cinna wasn’t a GOTH

  • Angel

    I think he would be perfect!

  • Mark

    Sure, why not?
