There's no rest for the team behind The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, which continues to make oodles at money at the box office across the world. Yet there's the small matter of two more films to put out in the next two years, and thus work is well underway on The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1, which lands in cinemas next November.
The decision to split Suzanne Collins' book in two is clearly a commercial one, and inevitably, it's lead to questions over how it can be done, and if there's enough material to adequately do it. The casting of Prison Break's Robert Knepper in the movie, however, offers a clue. For he's going to be playing a brand new character by the name of Antonius. »
Mr Knepper certainly doesn't seem to have a problem being typecast anyway. He's not only added the Clock King to his resume of villains, but he's also signed on to play an evil minister named Antonius who's aligned with President Snow (Donald Sutherland) in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay parts 1 and 2. It's official! Please welcome @Robert_Knepper as Antonius to the cast of @TheHungerGames: Mockingjay Parts 1&2. pic.twitter.com/LWSCS5AuAp— Catching Fire (@TheHungerGames) December 11, 2013 But hey, as a great man once said, if you're good at something never do it for free. Thoughts on a brand new character being created just for these movies? »
• Sandra Bullock, who just picked up a SAG nomination for her work in Gravity, is in early talks to star in the comedy Our Brand Is Crisis for producers George Clooney and Grant Heslov. Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy’s Peter Straughan wrote a script based on a 2005 documentary about the use of American political campaign techniques in the 2002 Bolivian presidential election. EW’s Entertainer of the Year is currently voicing the lead role in The Minions, set for a July 2015 release. [The Wrap]

While Catching Fire continues its campaign of conquest at the holiday box office, Lionsgate is busily filming Mockingjay, the Hunger Games double-threequel that will open in two halves in Novembers 2014 and 2015. The studio just announced its latest bit of casting: Robert Knepper will play Antonius. That’s interesting news, since there’s no one in the Mockingjay book named Antonius. The first two films departed a bit from the source material, with scenes focusing on President Snow that would’ve been impossible in the Katniss-narrated books. But this is the first time that the franchise has cast a recognizable actor in a completely new role. »

The actor will play the role of President Snow's minister Antonius, a character who doesn't feature in the Suzanne Collins books.
Knepper's casting was announced by Lionsgate today (December 11).
The cast of the film recently spoke to Digital Spy about the final franchise instalments.
Director Lawrence said: "The good thing is by splitting it in two you actually will get more of the book in the movies because you have a little more time for each part. There's also room for some surprises and additions."

This week, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug hits theaters, and in honor of the Middle-Earth set trilogy, the folks at "Sesame Street" decided to reach back into cinema's past to parody Lord of the Rings, the trio of tales that actually follows The Hobbit in J.R..R. Tolkien's fictional timeline. Much like their recent parody of The Hunger Games, this segment takes cues from the aforementioned Peter Jackson films, and mixes them with lessons for kids in Lord of the Crumbs. This lesson is about self-control and delayed gratification to wait for something delicious like a cookie, which proves difficult for someone like Cookie Monster, who plays a character called Gobble, on a quest to bake cookies ("Me precious!"). It's pretty cute. Here's the "Sesame Street" parody of Lord of the Rings with Cookie Monster (via THR): In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit. »

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, »

Clearly not a franchise to keep the fans waiting, it was announced that Prison Break’s Robert Knepper will be joining the last instalments of The Hunger Games series, and it looks like it could possibly be a new character too.
According to website reports, Knepper will be playing Antonius, President Snow’s (Donald Sutherland) minister. But fans of the book have realised that there is no character of that name. The only character that has some resemblance to the name is Aurelius, but in the book series he is a doctor, not a minister. If that is the case, then it would be the first time that the film has stepped away from the original material.
He joins new cast members Julianne Moore, Natalie Dormer, Lily Rabe, Patina Miller, Stef Dawson, Wes Chapman and Elden Henson. But if you’re feeling uncomfortable with possible character changes (insert Stewie Griffin »

This week’s issue of EW is going to feature a lot of T & A.
That’s Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, you sickos. The two women, who will host the Golden Globes next month for the second year in a row, accepted a one-week job to become guest editors of EW. What does that mean, you ask? It means they wrote the Must List and Bullseye, assigned several stories and ran down the hallway screaming things like, “Orphan Black is the new Orange is the New Black!” and “Change all fonts to Comic Sans at once!” Of course, if »

Robert Knepper has been cast as Antonius, President Snow’s minister, in “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay,” Lionsgate announced Wednesday on Twitter. “Catching Fire” filmmaker Francis Lawrence returns to direct the two-part “Hunger Games” finale, which is based on the third novel in the bestselling series by Suzanne Collins.

The character does not appear in the Suzanne Collins novels, but a report from Variety reveals that Antonius is the minister to President Snow (Donald Sutherland). It isn't known how big a part this mystery character will play in the two-part sequel.
The actor joins a cast that includes Jennifer Lawrence (Katniss Everdeen), Josh Hutcherson (Peeta Mellark), Liam Hemsworth (Gale Hawthorne), Philip Seymour Hoffman (Plutarch Heavensbee), Julianne Moore (Alma Coin), Natalie Dormer (Cressida), Stef Dawson (Annie Cresta), Evan Ross (Messalla), Lily Rabe (Commander Lyme) and Patina Miller (Commander Paylor).
There's not a lot to say about the character at this point, because it seems to be someone all new to the universe. Seeing as how the final two movies focus on the rebellion against the Capitol, it's possible he will play a role one of of the two sides of that war. Whether he's a friend or foe of Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) remains to be seen.
Outside of "Mob City," Knepper is best remembered as Theodore "T-Bag" Bagwell on Fox's "Prison Break." He later reprised the role on an episode of "Breakout Kings." The actor has also appeared on "The Blacklist" as The Courier.
"The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1" is scheduled to arrive in theaters November 21, 2014. »
