In Suzanne Collins third and final Hunger Games book Mockingjay, Homes is a District 13 soldier and was able to accurately shoot targets at a long distance. Homes goes on a mission with Boggs to transfer the Holo (the device rebels used to see where pods were hidden in the Capitol) to Katniss, Homes tells fellow soldier Jackson that Boggs did indeed give the Holo to Katniss.

Abtahi recently appeared in the Ben Affleck directed and led film Argo, but more recently he had small roles in television shows Revolution and NCIS: Los Angeles.

Mockingjay began filming this week in Atlanta, and several cast members are already on location. They include Julianne Moore who joined the franchise to play President Coin. Yesterday we shared a couple photos from the set in which we see the actress sporting gray to match the character’s description in the book.

The final two films in The Hunger Games series will open in theaters November 2014 and November 2015. Catching Fire opens this November 22.
