Hunger Games Rue
March 27, 2012 by staff
Hunger Games Rue, You can’t please everyone when adapting a book for the big screen, especially one as beloved as “The Hunger Games,” but director Gary Ross and the casting team likely weren’t anticipating this.
According to Jezebel, there appears to be a group of fans who are displeased that black actors were cast to portray Cinna (Lenny Kravitz), Rue (Amandla Stenberg) and Thresh (Dayo Okeniyi). While Cinna’s complexion isn’t described in the novel, author Suzanne Collins does describe the latter two characters as both having dark skin.
As chronicled on the Tumblr “Hunger Games Tweets,” it seems some readers either didn’t pick up on the description or didn’t read the description as depicting two African-American characters, and as a result have been vocal about their disappointment.
“Why does Rue have to be black not gonna lie kinda ruined the movie,” wrote one fan in a tweet posted on the “Hunger Games Tweets” Tumblr.
