Rabe, who was to again portray Commander Lyme in the second part of the "Hunger Games: Mockinjay" films, has been replaced by "Game of Thrones" actress Gwendoline Christie. Rabe will appear as Lyme in "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay–Part 1," which will hit theatres this fall.
As previously reported, Rabe will co-star with Hamish Linklater in the Public Theater's Shakespeare in the Park production of Much Ado About Nothing, which begins performances June 3 at the Delacorte Theater. Tony Award winner Jack O'Brien (The Nance, Macbeth, Hairspray) will direct the comedy.
Rabe previously starred in the Shakespeare in the Park productions of The Merchant of Venice and As You Like It.
