Amanda Plummer Joins The Cast Of ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’
  |  @   |  

The list of remaining roles in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is slowly being crossed off. With Jean Malone playing Joanna Mason and Philip Seymour Hoffman signed on to play Plutarch, director Francis Lawrence still has some major roles to cast for the anticipated sequel.

Lionsgate has confirmed that Amanda Plummer (Pulp Fiction) has signed on for the role of Wiress. According to the press release, 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 Tony Award winner is best known for her role in Quentin Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction and Terry Gilliam’s The Fisher King. Plummer has also been in smaller scale films ranging from shorts to TV films. She can next be seen as the title character in the forthcoming film Abigail Harms.

Here is the current plot description for the film:

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire begins as Katniss Everdeen has returned home safe after winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games along with fellow tribute Peeta Mellark. Winning means that they must turn around and leave their family and close friends, embarking on a “Victor’s Tour” of the districts. Along the way Katniss senses that a rebellion is simmering, but the Capitol is still very much in control as President Snow prepares the 75th Annual Hunger Games (The Quarter Quell) – a competition that could change Panem forever.

Based on everything that Plummer has done in the past, Wiress will be one of the biggest roles that she will undertake.

Lionsgate will release The Hunger Games: Catching Fire on November 22, 2013.
