    According to the NYPD, officers pulled Wright over after they saw him driving erratically, and detected an alcohol odor coming from his vehicle.

    Wright was arrested after officers conducted a field sobriety test and he failed it.

    The actor, known for his roles in "Casino Royale" and "Angels in America," will play Beetee in the second installment of the "Hunger Games" franchise.

    The film is set to hit theaters Nov. 22.
