Jeffrey Wright cast in The Hunger Games Catching Fire. The casting of Jeffrey Wright in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (2013) answers the question of who will play Beetee in the Francis Lawrence directed film.

On the role of Beetee (spoilers):

a former Hunger Games winner from District 3…Known for his intelligence and expertise with technology, Beetee won the Games in his year by rigging an electronic trap to kill off his competitors. He remains close friends with another District 3 victor, Wiress (Amanda Plummer), and immediately hits it off with Katniss they meet.

How Beetee fits into the sequel and where the sequel picks up:

THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE begins as Katniss Everdeen has returned home safe after winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games along with fellow tribute Peeta Mellark. Winning means that they must turn around and leave their family and close friends, embarking on a “Victor’s Tour” of the districts. Along the way Katniss senses that a rebellion is simmering, but the Capitol is still very much in control as President Snow prepares the 75th Annual Hunger Games (The Quarter Quell) – a competition that could change Panem forever.

    I’m okay with them casting un-famous or new actors as long as the movie is nothing like the first one.
