While you guys were all worried over who would play Finnick, none of you were wondering who would play Beetee. Poor Beetee. No one cares about you. Well get ready to care because character actor Jeffrey Wright has been cast in the part for ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.’

Lionsgate has officially announced Jeffrey Wright as the latest member of the cast of ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.’ In the sequel to this year’s young adult hit ‘The Hunger Games,’ Wright will play Beetee, a guy with some serious experience with electronics, earning him the cooler nickname of “Volts.”

Wright is a versatile actor who won a Tony Award for his part in Tony Kushner’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play ‘Angels in America.’ He also starred in ‘Basquiat,’ ‘Quantum of Solace,’ ‘Casino Royale,’ W,’ and last year’s ‘Source Code.’ Seriously, you can’t even say ‘Source Code’ without saying it in his voice.

‘Catching Fire’ follows Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) as they go on a “Victor’s Tour” following the 74th Hunger Games. But rebellion is quietly building in the districts as President Snow prepares Panem for the Quarter Quell, the 75th annual Hunger Games tournament, and it doesn’t look like Katniss and Peeta are done with their fight for survival.
