Robert Knepper Joins The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Parts 1 and 2
We're currently enjoying having Robert Knepper ("Prison Break," "Heroes," "Carnivale") back on the small screen in Frank Darabont's "Mob City," but he's heading to the big screen shortly as it's just been announced that he's joined the cast of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Parts 1 and 2.
Per The Hunger Games on Twitter, Knepper has signed on for the part of "Antonius." Interestingly, a quick check of the Wiki for the novels indicates that this is a new character not included in Suzanne Collins' trilogy. If you know something we don't, please share!
Danny Strong and Peter Craig wrote the two-part Hunger Games finale, Mockingjay, which follows Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) as she leads a rebellion against the tyrannical and corrupt Capitol in the futuristic land of Panem. Francis Lawrence returns to direct.
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 will be in theatres on November 21st, 2014, with Part 2 following on November 20th, 2015.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Book Synopsis
Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen has survived the Hunger Games twice. But now that she's made it out of the bloody arena alive, she's still not safe. The Capitol is angry. The Capitol wants revenge. Who do they think should pay for the unrest? Katniss. And what's worse, President Snow has made it clear that no one else is safe either. Not Katniss' family, not her friends, not the people of District 12.
