17 Sep 2013
Tony nominee Lily Rabe has joined the cast of "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay," according to Deadline.com.
Rabe will play Commander Lyme, a victor of past Hunger Games and a leader of the Rebellion being plotted in District 13.
"The Hunger Games: Mockingjay," which will be presented in two separate films, follows Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) as she reluctantly becomes the symbol of a mass rebellion against the autocratic Capitol. The films will open in November 2014 and November 2015.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
