Here's a brand new character poster of Jeffrey Wright as Beetee in the much-anticipated Hunger Games sequel, based on Suzanne Collins’ novel The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.

Who's Beetee? Courtesy of the Hunger Games wiki:

Hailing from District 3, Beetee was given the nickname "Volts" by the other victors of the years after his victory and his knowledge about manipulating electricity. Together with Wiress (his companion, who never left his side during the 75th Hunger Games), they were called "Nuts and Volts." He and Wiress got the trust of Katniss when they were training for the games. Wiress and Beetee were two of the many Tributes who were called upon by Haymitch to protect Katniss and Peeta no matter what in the arena, but they were also meant to be protected as a means to stop the Games forever.

Directed by Francis Lawrence, and produced by Nina Jacobson’s Color Force in tandem with producer Jon KilikThe 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.

Blah... blah... blah.. blah... blah...

The poster is courtesy of MTV, who state that it's being unveiled in advance of a July 20 panel at Comic-Con, where fans will get to see new footage from the film and speak to stars Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson.

It's scheduled for a November 22, 2013 release.

    I actually imagined that Beetee would look a bit older, and less fit ... but I'll wait until I see the film for final judgment

    Another Hunger Games. More racist tweeting. Get your popcorn ready.

    Man, he lost some major weight. Even his facial structure has changed. Mr. Wright is super talented.

    Agreed. JW has skills, I'm glad he's in this and making that money staying positive (aka: not "wearing the dress.") And yes, assuming he ain't photoshopped, he's slimmed down and looking pretty good too, no homo.
