Though filming has been underway for some time, Lionsgate has just announced another addition to The Hunger Games: Mockingjay in Michelle Forbes.
The actress will play Lt. Jackson in the second half of the two-part finale.
In the books by Suzanne Collins, Jackson is a soldier from District 13. She becomes a part of Squad 451 as a sharp shooter alongside Katniss, Finnick, and Gale. She also helps Peeta get his memory back by playing a real-or-not-real game.
Forbes’ IMDb had listed Mockingjay as one of her credits for some time, but the news of her casting wasn’t confirmed until today.
You may recognize the actress from shows like True Blood, Chicago Fire, The Killing and Battlestar Galactica.
Mockingjay wrapped filming in Atlanta last month and is now shooting in Europe’s Berlin and Paris. Both movies are directed by Francis Lawrence who also directed Catching Fire.
Speaking of future Hunger Games movies, we believe we’re due for a trailer or promotional posters soon. This time last year we already had a teaser trailer for Catching Fire.
Mockingjay, Part 1 opens November 2014 and Mockingjay, Part 2 hits November 2015.
