In a recent interview with ABC News, Jeffrey Wright, who has been cast as Beetee in the Hunger Games sequel discuss his role in the movie.
“It’s really comforting,” Wright said about being a part of the cultural phenomenon. “When you make a movie, you hope that you will surpass peoples’ expectations.”
Wright plays Beetee in the second installment, “Catching Fire,” which is currently filming.
“[He] is one of the previous victors from the games,” Wright said. “He comes back in the 75th anniversary games, the Quarter Quell as it’s called and he participates again. But this time the games are used as a foil to advance other ideas.”
