Toby Jones is excited. Soon to return as games announcer Claudius Templesmith in the much-anticipated Lionsgate sequel "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire," Jones had nothing but glowing things to say about new director Francis Lawrence. The director of "I Am Legend" has "a very different rhythm he works at," Jones told MTV's Josh Horowitz during Sunday's Golden Globes ceremony. Lawrence, he said, has "a whole different visual sense" that will excite people, and will even have a "very interesting way" in how he dramatizes the games themselves. Lawrence took over the director's chair for "Catching Fire" after Gary Ross -- who wrote and directed the first one based on the novels by Suzanne Collins -- had to bow out following a fast-track production schedule was announced for the sequel.
