In The Hunger Games, Head Gamemaker Seneca Crane has some seriously sculpted facial hair, thanks to the movie’s makeup artist Ve Neill. "She really wanted to make Seneca stand out in that Capitol world of garishness, and what better way than a really sharp beard?" said Wes Bentley, who plays Crane, at the Los Angeles premiere of the film this week. To create the look, “she went at me for three hours,” he told And it didn’t take long for Bentley to get rid of it—a week and a half. "I couldn't maintain it," he said. "I'd need a special girl like Ve Neill to do that." See more Hunger Games news in the gallery. The movie debuts in theaters Friday, March 23rd.
