Michael Gioielli Talks About His Brother Bruno and ‘The Hunger Games’ Jewelry Designer Will Return
Canton, Ohio is now the hometown of another member of The Hunger Games family, Bruno Gunn, and the local paper interviewed Michael about his brother’s big upcoming role:
“Bruno’s played a lot of tough-guy roles — police officers, guys in the military, bouncers, bartenders, tough guys,” his brother said. “He’s a big guy with a shaved head.”
“This is Bruno’s biggest role ever. It’s going to open doors for him big time,” said the actor’s understandably excited brother, Michael Gioielli. “He’s on cloud nine right now.”
“He’s got a lot of fight scenes,” Michael said. “He’s going to be on-set for at least five months.”
Canton is also the home of Dana Schneider, the jewelry designer who created the Mockingjay pin for the first film. The paper also revealed that Schneider will return for ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ to create “another Mockingjay pin as well as other pieces of jewelry for two other main characters”. Schneider has described the pieces as “very complicated and artistically very challenging”.
How exciting for Bruno! And what do you think the items of jewelry could be?
