Lionsgate has just announced a new cast member joining The Hunger Games: Catching Fire!
Amanda Plummer will play Wiress. “The character’s eccentricity earns her the nickname “Nuts” from fellow tributes, and though she doesn’t communicate traditionally, her observations and contributions prove invaluable in the Quarter Quell,” the press release notes.
Plummer is best known for her roles in The Fisher King and Pulp Fiction. She is a Tony Award winning stage actress on and off Broadway. You’ll also see her in the upcoming film Abigail Harms.
A week ago today it was announced that Philip Seymour Hoffman will play Gamemaker Plutarch Heavensbee.
Catching Fire hits theaters November 22, 2013.
