Mockingjay casting news has resumed! In what came as a surprise to some of us, Lionsgate announced that Prison Break actor Robert Knepper would be taking on the role of Antonius in both Mockingjay films.
Now WHO is Antonius, you might ask? Early on there was a lot of speculation that he was Dr. Aurelius; however The Wrap is reporting that Antonius is actually President Snow’s Minister. We’re still not exactly sure what that means, but if we find out more we’ll let you know!
So Mockingjay casting is in full swing, and with characters who fans are struggling to remember being cast — therefore confirmed for the films — the fate of Delly Cartwright is still unknown. While I had accepted that she would go the way of Madge Undersee, I’m starting to wonder if maybe she will get cast. Since there are TWO films it does seem as though they can make room for her. Not to mention, just about everyone remembers Delly, right? Lyme, Homes, and some of the other characters have slipped the minds of many, but they have been cast. So what I want to know is do you think Delly Cartwright will be in the Mockingjay films? Personally, I REALLY hope she is!
Check out this amazing photo captured by Stef Dawson’s friend, beejanland, when she found out she had won the role of Annie Cresta in the Mockingjay films. Not only was the timing impeccable, her expression is pricesless!
As promised, Lionsgate has announced another member of the Mockingjay cast! Stef Dawson will portray District 4 victor and Finnick’s love, Annie Cresta. While she’s been acting fairly regularly for the past six years, it’s been mostly short films and indie projects. Personally, I am not familiar with her previous work, but based on her appearance alone I think she looks perfect!
What do you think? Is this how you pictured Annie? Let us know!
Lionsgate spent part of their time at Cannes selling their films to the foreign market, among their sales were Mockingjay Parts 1 & 2, which included a brief synopsis of the films. Warning: spoilers presesnt! If you haven’t read Mockingjay you might want to save the synopsis until you have.
In MOCKINGJAY PARTS 1 & 2, we follow heroine Katniss Everdeen’s journey as she leads the districts of Panem in a rebellion against the tyrannical and corrupt Capitol. As the war that will determine the fate of Panem escalates, Katniss must decipher for herself who she can trust and what needs to be done, with everything she cares for in the balance.
Production Weekly recently reported that first installment of Mockingjay would be filming in Boston and Atlanta, and now they’ve added Los Angeles to that list. This information remains unconfirmed, but as soon as confirmation is available we will let you know!
